How to Make a Café Cortado, AKA “unCortadito”
order to make a Café Cortado, AKA “unCortadito” You will need… · 2 oz. espresso · 1-2 oz. milk · A stainless steel pitcher · Steam wand Step 1: 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. Tip – Try 2% milk in your Cortado. It is easier to steam than whole milk, but will give a richer flavor than skim milk. Step 2: Pour warm, prepared espresso into the glass. Step 3: Add 1 to 2 ounces of steamed milk to the espresso. Use more milk for a creamier, less bitter flavor. Tip – Top the Cortado with a small amount of milk foam, if desired. Step 4: Serve your small drink immediately. Relax, and sip your drink slowly to enjoy the delicious, rich flavor of your Cortado.
