This is the original coffeehouse classic. And like most classics, part of its appeal comes from its simplicity. A caffè latte is simply a shot or two of bold, tasty espresso with fresh, sweet steamed milk over it. Some prefer to add syrup or extra espresso to the recipe. Some maintain that it is entirely perfect as is.
