The drink is similar to a cappuccino, with the difference being that a cappuccino is made up of espresso and steamed milk, with a layer of milk foam
In Italy, caffè latte is almost always prepared at home and is consumed exclusively for breakfast. The coffee is brewed in a stovetop moka pot and then poured into a cup that has been heated with heated milk to serve.
When ordered outside of Italy, the drink is usually served in an 8-ounce glass or cup with one standard shot of espresso (either single, 30 mL, or 1 US fl oz, or double, 60 mL, or 2 US fl oz) and steamed milk on top, followed by a layer of foamed milk. Latte macchiato is the proper name for this beverage when ordering it in Italy.
An iced latte is typically made with espresso and chilled milk, which is then poured over ice. It differs from a hot latte in that it does not typically contain steamed milk or foam on top. Iced lattes are frequently flavored with sugar or flavoring syrups, though purists prefer them to be made solely of coffee and milk.
They are always served blended with ice to ensure the best flavor. The espresso can be pre-chilled (sometimes as a mixture of espresso and milk) or frozen in advance to avoid the drink from becoming too warm when it is served.

And for a number of years, we focused on helping people find their desired coffee machine (we still are helping folks with that!
