What is a latte?

Caffè Latte is an espresso and milk-based coffee drink. Meaning ‘milk coffee’ in Italian, this hot milky drink is blended harmoniously with a Lungo shot, making it the ideal sweet coffee drink to sip, savour and dream of Italy. No wonder why it's so popular as a morning drink!

How to make a latte?

Making a latte is similar to making a cappuccino, but with more milk and served in a larger cup. Simply pour one espresso shot in your latte recipe cup and top it up with 90 ml of frothed milk. Et voilà, you can now enjoy your favourite drink from the comfort of your home.
