Cortado

A Cortado is a coffee drink that combines espresso and steamed milk. It is popular in Spain and Portugal, as well as throughout Latin America and Cuba, as an afternoon drink. It is similar to a café macchiato except that the Cortado has an equal espresso to steamed milk ratio and the macchiato has foam milk and a smaller amount of milk. Some cafes like to add foam art on top, but this drink typically has no foam.
