A latte is a coffee drink that is made with espresso and steamed milk. The milk is usually frothed in order to create a creamy texture.
In order to make a latte, the first step is to brew the espresso. Once the espresso has been brewed, steam the milk until it is hot and frothy. When pouring the milk into the cup, be sure to hold back the foam so that it does not overflow. Finally, top off the latte with the foam and serve immediately.
The key to making perfect frothed milk is to heat it until it is hot but not boiling. Then, use a whisk or electric frother to create bubbles in the milk. For best results, keep the tip of the whisk just below the surface of the milk as you move it around in a circular motion. It should take about 30 seconds to achieve optimal frothiness.
You need to layer the espresso and the frothed milk. Because latte only has a small layer of milk foam, you should pour the liquid, steamed milk on the espresso, while holding a spoon to prevent the frothed milk from being mixed. Once ready, add the milk foam (around 1 cm).

Pour the coffee directly over the frothed milk or brew over the frothed milk. Alternatively, you can heat the milk in a glass measuring cup and then froth. Pour coffee or espresso into a mug and then gently pour the frothed milk over the coffee. Spoon the remaining foam on top of your latte.Apr 2, 2020
