DescriptionCaffe latte (in Italian- meaning coffe milk) is a coffee drink made with espresso and steamed milk. Northern Europe and Scandinavia have traditionally used the term 'Cafu lait' for espresso and milk, although in the US this term is used for brewed coffee and scalded milk. Increasingly common in the United States and Europe, latte art has led to the stylization of coffee making, and the creation of what is now a popular art form. Created by pouring steaming, and mostly frothed, milk into the coffee, that liquid is introduced into the beverage in such a way that patterns are distinguishable on the top of coffee. Popular patterns can include hearts, flowers, trees and other forms of simplistic representations of images and objects.
