A latte (meaning “coffee milk”) is a coffee drink made with espresso and steamed milk. When used in English, the word is also sometimes incorrectly spelled latté or lattè—the diacritical mark being added as a hyperforeignism. Northern Europe and Scandinavia have traditionally used the term ‘Café au lait’ for espresso and milk, although in the US this term is used for brewed coffee and scalded milk.
