"The difference between a latte and a cappuccino is very simple, the shot of coffee is exactly the same that doesn't change, it's the milk.
For a latte the milk is not frothy although a tiny bit can be added to the top for decoration. A latte is a coffee beverage prepared with 1/4 espresso, 1/2 steamed milk, and 1/4 of milk foam on top. Flavors are also sometimes added.
Latte = 2 shots + 8-10oz steamed milk + dollop of foam
*In Italy, a Latte is a cup of steamed milk and a cappuccino is 2oz of espresso and 1oz of foamed crema.
For a cappuccino, 3 quarters is still milk and 1 quarter is frothy milk,also on a cappuccino you get chocolate bits. A cappuccino is a coffee beverage prepared with 1/3 espresso, 1/3 steamed milk and a 1/3 milk foam. Cappuccino's can also be made "wet", meaning with more than the usual amount of steamed milk, or "dry" meaning with more than the usual amount of milk foam.
Cappuccino = 1 shot (2oz) + 1 ounce of foam + 1 ounce of steamed milk
The difference for an espresso would be just one shot of coffee by itself.
Please remember, each store may make it slightly different."
