A Latte is a type of coffee drink made with espresso coffee mixed with steamed milk to provide a satisfying energy boost and delicious flavor. Many lattes are mixed with some flavoring to add more to the taste, such as pumpkin spice or caramel, which is my favorite. Starbucks offers several flavoring options for the lattes.

A white chocolate mocha is another of Starbucks’ popular mixed coffee drinks. Starbucks combines their regular espresso shot with 2% milk, milk foam, and white chocolate sauce.

Cold Brew
