About the Cortado
Indulge in the world of coffee refinement with the cortado, a captivating coffee drink that blends espresso and velvety steamed milk in perfect harmony. The cortado originates from Spain, specifically Catalonia and Valencia, and has gained popularity worldwide for its balanced flavor and elegant presentation.
The name “cortado” comes from the Spanish word meaning “cut” or “trimmed,” alluding to the technique of “cutting” the intensity of espresso by adding a small amount of milk. This process creates a delightful beverage that highlights the richness of espresso while providing a gentle and smooth taste.
For coffee enthusiasts seeking an intriguing fact, the cortado is often confused with the macchiato due to their similar appearance. However, the cortado features a higher milk-to-espresso ratio, resulting in a smoother and less intense flavor profile.
In our café, we take pride in crafting the perfect Cortado, meticulously combining a precise amount of espresso and velvety steamed milk. This results in a small yet powerful beverage that embodies elegance and offers a delightful sensory experience. Join us to savor the allure of the Cortado and immerse yourself in the artistry of coffee craftsmanship.
