How To Use An Espresso Machine
To Make A Latte?

Due to the fact that lattes are mildly flavored in comparison to black coffee, they are a popular choice among caffeine addicts around the world.

Lattes are made up of two shots of espresso and three ounces of steamed milk, blended together. All that's left to do is add a foam topping for the cherry on top.

Espressos can be acidic in some cases, especially true when the pressure applied during the extraction is excessive or when the beans used are old.

Adding milk to your espresso not only helps to cool it down, but it also helps to relieve the heavy sensation in your mouth and works wonders for people who like to take their coffee in small sips throughout the day. It brings out the fineness of the espresso by combining it with its microfoam bubbles to create a foam.

To make the perfect espresso shot, finely grind your ground coffee before using it. To ensure quality, use the grains of table salt from your own home as a guide – these grounds should be ground to the same fineness as table salt.

A cup of latte requires six ounces of milk, which you should prepare ahead of time. Pour the steamed milk into your coffee cup to complete the drink. The proportions are approximately: one-third espresso and two-thirds milk. The steamed milk must have a microfoam layer, but it must not have a stiff foam layer, such as you would find in a latte or a cappuccino, to be considered acceptable.
