Espresso is coffee that has been brewed using steam pressure to force water through coffee grounds. It's intense, oily, and rich, and these characteristics help offset the amount of milk used in these beverages.
A latte is a coffee beverage that is made with espresso, steamed milk, and milk foam.
A good latte can be made at home even if you do not have an espresso machine. It all comes down to control, and you can do so in the comfort of your own home, where you can adjust the ratio of espresso to warm milk to milk foam and give it any name you want.
Milk should be measured out into a glass measuring cup or mug, and a frother should be placed in the milk. Using a frother, begin whisking the milk until it reaches the desired consistency. More foam will be produced if you frother your milk near the top.
To make frothy milk at home, follow these steps. Using a microwave is actually quite simple. It is possible to microwave the milk (use nonfat or 2 percent milk) for a few seconds at a time, shaking the container constantly, until the milk becomes foamy. Into your latte is poured foam and warm milk, which is delicious.
