Some like it HOT Latte!


Here in Maryland, the weather is still a little chilly.  The rain keeps me inside seeking something warm and comforting.

This week's latte is a little spicy to warm up your insides.  I hope that you'll like the different flavors and warm up with something delightful.

Did you know: Each pump on a bottle of syrup dispenses 1/4 ounce of syrup? Usually, a pump of flavoring from syrups with sugar has about 5 grams of carb and 20 calories. In most coffee houses, 3 of these “pumps” are put into a 12 oz coffee drink, 4 into a 16 oz drink, and 5 into a 20 oz drink.

What a latte?

A latte is type of coffee that's made with espresso and hot steamed milk. It comes from the Italian word caffè e latte, caffelatte or caffellatte, which means “milk coffee”.

A latte is the creamiest of the espresso drinks because it is two-thirds steamed milk, espresso and topped with milk foam.

How much coffee is in a latte?

A latte is made with 1-3 shots of espresso.  Although usually it is made standard with 2 shots. 

Latte Mix-Ins!

I like to add different things to our lattes from time to time.  Here are a few of our favorite Mix-Ins:

  • 1 tsp cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1tsp Nutmeg
  • 1tsp cinnamon 
  • 1 tsp vanilla
