Lattes (or Caffe Lattes) are espresso drinks made with a fairly large amount of foamed milk. They are milkier than cappuccinos. In America, many lattes are prepared as flavored lattes.

If you’re a habitual latte drinker, investing in a basic espresso maker and learning to make lattes can save you.


  • One shot espresso
  • Two shots or more foamed milk
  • (Optional) One shot of flavored simple syrup (preferably a popular latte flavor) or chocolate syrup (or chocolate powder mixed into a paste with a little hot water)


  1. Pull your espresso shot in your latte cup.
  2. (Optional) Add a shot of flavored syrup for a flavored latte.
  3. Using a spoon to retain the microbubbles on top of the steamed milk, pour the bottom 2/3 of the steamed milk from the steaming pitcher into the latte cup.
  4. Top the latte with the remaining bubbles. (You can spoon them onto your drink if desired.)
  5. (Optional) Add latte art.
