Latte Caffeine Content

A latte is simply steamed milk and at least 1 or multiple shots of espresso. The difference between a latte and a cappuccino is the addition of foamed milk to your coffee drink. The foam adds depth, making it similar to a cappuccino. When ordering a latte, ask for your milk heated just enough that it’s hot, but not too hot that it can burn you as you drink it

How many lattes does it take to get addicted?
