How to Make a Cortado

November 24, 2020 1 min read

If you're in the mood for a cappuccino with a bolder flavor, the cortado might be your best bet. With a higher coffee to milk ratio, the cortado provides the perfect balance between an espresso and a cappuccino. Skip the trip to the cafe and make the perfect cortado in your kitchen with these steps:

1. Brew 2 oz of espresso (double shot)

2. Steam 4 oz of whole milk.

3. Pour steamed milk and foam into the espresso.

The cortado is a Spanish brew very similar to a cappuccino, only using less milk. As a result, the flavor of the espresso shot shines through a little stronger. Its name roughly translates to "cut" as the espresso shot is cut (or diluted) with steamed milk.

To make a perfect cortado, you'll need the perfect espresso. Pick up a bag of Two Tails Espresso roast to ensure a delicious espresso shot. For a full range of coffees to explore, be sure to visit our coffee collection and find the perfect blend and roast for every occasion

This amazing group focuses on the "underdogs" of the rescue world. Bully breeds with special needs. Unfortunately, the truth is that bully breeds or even dogs that are misidentified as pit bulls spend more time in the shelter than their counterparts of other breeds. The situation is even more dire for pit bulls with special needs, such as medical or behavioral issues.
