WHERE TO BUY

A latte or caffe latte is a popular espresso-based coffee drink around the world.

A latte is simply steamed milk and at least 1 or multiple shots of espresso.

Most coffee shops use a double espresso shot in a 16 fl oz latte while smaller sizes may only contain 1 shot for a total of 77 mg of caffeine.

If you aren't sure what your local coffee shop does, ask your barista.

The listing above reflects a latte made with a double shot of espresso (3 fl oz) and 10 fl oz whole milk (milk expands when steamed)

Note: There are many factors that can influence the caffeine content of a latte. The above is an average amount, but could actually be much lower or much higher.

The Anatomy of a Caffe Latte

  • A great latte starts with a perfectly pulled shot(s) of espresso. This means quality coffee beans were finely ground and packed properly. The shot is stopped before the crema turns white (blonding).
  • The steaming of the milk is also important. Steamed milk for a latte should be velvety smooth with tiny air bubbles. .
  • The steamed milk is then poured into the espresso slowly in a fashion that sends some of the crema to the top of the cup.

Skilled baristas can even create beautiful designs with the correct pour method.
