What does the word “latte” mean?
|The word latte means “milk” in Italian. However, if you order a latte in a coffee shop, you won’t get a cup of milk. A latte is an espresso-based beverage that’s a staple on most café menus. When you order a hot latte, espresso will be on the bottom of your cup, with a layer of steamed milk and a thin layer of foam on top. Iced lattes follow a similar process, but the espresso is poured over ice, and the milk is cold, without foam. Lattes are easily customizable with different flavors and sweeteners.|
