COFFEE BEANS & BEINGS / WHAT TO ORDER DOWN UNDER
Piccolo Latte in Melbourne
The price of a cup of coffee is more expensive in Melbourne than Sydney – but that’s just a testament to how seriously Melbournians take their coffee and the fact that they’re prepared to pay for a quality caffeine fix. See what all the fuss is about at Axil Coffee Roasters in Hawthorn or Dead Man Espresso in South Melbourne. But forget ordering a flat white: opt instead for a piccolo latte, which is made with less milk, so the espresso tastes stronger.
Piccolo latte is related to the Cortado in the Spanish speaking world and an Italian Macchiato.
How to make:
--single shot of espresso (30 ml)
--topped with steamed milk (80 ml)
--serve in a demitasse
