Cortado at Caffe Medici

By November 6, 2015 EAT, Recipes, Watch No Comments

A cortado is an espresso cut with a small amount of warm milk. The word cortado is the past participle of the Spanish verb cortar (to cut). In Spanish-speaking countries, a cortado is similar to the Italian macchiato, where a small amount of warm milk is added to “cut” (literally “stain”) the espresso. In the United States, the ratio of milk to coffee is between 1:1 and 1:2, and the milk is added after the espresso. Our standard at Medici is 1:1 and we serve this beverage at a ready to drink temperature in a 4oz gibraltar glass. Elsewhere in the world, a courted is also known as “Tallat” in Catalan, “Ebaki” in Basque, “Pingo” or “Garoto” in Portuguese and “noisette” in French.
