You Will Need
- 2 oz. espresso
- 1-2 oz. milk
- Stainless steel pitcher
- Steam wand
- 2% milk (optional)
Pour the milk into a stainless steel pitcher. Place the pitcher under the steam wand, with the wand touching the bottom of the pitcher. Turn the steam wand on, and move it so that it is just below the surface of the milk. Heat until it is steamed, but not foamy.
Pour espresso into glass
Pour warm, prepared espresso into the glass.
Add 1-2 oz. steamed milk
Add 1 to 2 ounces of steamed milk to the espresso. Use more milk for a creamier, less bitter flavor.
Serve your small drink immediately. Relax, and sip your drink slowly to enjoy the delicious, rich flavor of your cortado.
