Word for Wednesday: Latte

blog home

Our Word for Wednesday theme for June is coffee

Coffee is made by roasting and grinding coffee beans and creating an infusion. The word coffee entered English around 1600 via the Dutch ‘koffie’, which comes from the Turkish ‘kahveh', from the Arabic ‘qahwah’.

So far we’ve looked at the words espresso,  cappuccino, and macchiato. Today’s word is latte.

Latte literally means ‘milk coffee’ and refers to an espresso served with hot milk. The word comes from the Latin ‘lac’ meaning ‘milk’.
