Cafe Latte

Café latte, Italian for coffee with milk, is a mixture of espresso and a liberal amount of steamed or scalded milk and a foamy milk.

True latte contains two thirds milk to one third espresso. Café latte often served for breakfast, this white coffee consists of coffee and hot milk served with a little milk foam.

The Swiss affectionately call it schale, which literally translates to ‘bowl’.

In English-speaking countries, the so-called latte is shorthand for caffé latte or caffé ilatte. The long Italian form literally means ‘coffee and milk’, similar to the French of ‘café au lait’ and the Spanish ‘café con leche’.

William Dean Howells the American author and the writer of the novel The Rise of Silas Lapham, was the one first who used the term ‘latto’ in 1847. And then he used ‘latte’ in 1867 in his essay ‘Italian Journey’.
