How to make a caffè latte

In Italy, caffè latte is usually made for breakfast at home. The coffee is brewed on the stove in a pot. This is then poured into a cup containing hot milk. In Italy, the milk is not foamed, whereas in the international latte version, the milk is foamed.

Elsewhere in the world, a caffè latte is typically prepared in a 240 mL (8 oz) glass or cup with one shot of espresso, commonly a single (30 ml) or double (60 ml), and filled with steamed milk. It should have a layer of foamed milk about 12 mm thick on top.

Of course, different places in the world and different coffee shops will often have their own variation of a caffè latte, but at the top of this post is how Wikipedia describes a caffè latte to be made (so it must be right)!
