A latte (from the Italian caffè latte or caffellatte pronounced [ˌkaffelˈlatte], meaning “coffee [and] milk”) is a coffee drink made with espresso and steamed milk.

Variants include replacing the coffee with another drink base such as chai, mate or matcha.

The word is also sometimes spelled latté or lattè —the non-etymological diacritical mark being added as a hyperforeignism.
