Espresso Coffee Menu: Caffe Latte

 In Articles, Introduction to Espresso

Caffe latte is one or two shots of espresso topped with steamed milk, often served in a glass.

Step One:

Remove the single handle from the group head and knock out the spent coffee cake into the knockbox.

Step Two:

Place the empty handle under the grinder/doser and make one complete pull no more, no less.

Step Three:

Tamp the coffee. Hold the group handle in your weaker hand, tamp with your writing hand. As you tamp give the handle a good hard twist left to right to ensure a solid pack.

Step Four:

Wipe the excess grounds from the rim of the filter.

Step Five:

Refit the handle to the group head and brew the espresso into a caffe latte glass or cup.

Step Six:

While the espresso is brewing, begin foaming the milk following the How to foam and steam milk instructions.

Step Seven:

Wipe the steam wand!

Step Eight:

Using a spoon to hold back the foamed milk, let only the steamed milk pour into the glass. Finish the drink with a scoop of creamy foam.
