How To Prepare Cortado Coffee

Cortado is a Spanish beverage made by pouring a small amount of espresso in a small glass cup, then cutting it with an equal amount of steamed milk in order to neutralize the bitterness.

The name comes from the Spanish word cortar, meaning to cut, which refers to the preparation process.

 

 

WHAT YOU WILL NEED

Espresso machine

Coffee grinder

Whole coffee beans

Freshly roasted coffee—between 7 and 14 days—is best.

Milk

Whole or 2% milk is the usual, but you can use whatever you like

 

 

RECIPE INGREDIENTS

2 shots espresso

2 ounces milk

 

 

DIRECTIONS ON HOW TO PREPARE CORTADO COFFEE

Grind coffee beans and use an espresso machine to extract 2 shots of espresso into a small cup that holds at least 4 ounces. A gibraltar glass is the perfect size for a cortado at 4.5 ounces.

Steam milk.

Froth 4 ounces of lightly textured milk (the same as you would for a latte)—but you’ll only use 2 since steaming less than 4 ounces is difficult without burning it.

Pour milk into espresso.

Into your cup with espresso, pour in 2 ounces of milk.
