A Cortado is made by combining an equal amount of espresso and steamed milk, usually using one shot of espresso and the equal amount of milk.

Cortado comes from the Spanish word cortar, which means “to cut.” The steamed milk is said to “cut” the espresso to reduce the acidity and intensity of the drink. The Spanish origin is important to the make-up of this drink. Unlike many other popular espresso drinks, the cortado has little to no foam. A smooth go~

GOOD MORNING! and may yours be waiting for you. XO
