Caffè di Artisan liquid single-serve coffee pods take all the work out of making a Latté, while delivering epic taste.
All Natural. Machine-free. Gut-friendly.

Zero power consumption by you (or your coffee shop) as a user. Remember, a coffee machine uses half a million watts a year in power. Yes, you read that right.
But first a little background to the drink itself.
Coffee shop menus now give a bewildering list of coffee drinks: many of which appear to be a combination of coffee and milk. So, what exactly is what?
If you have ever wondered about this, here are the answers in simple English
- A Latté has a liquid coffee shot with hot milk and a little bit of foam
- A Cappuccino has the same combination as a Latté, but the ratio of foam to milk is much higher. The foam on top of the drink keeps it warm for much longer by acting as an insulating layer.
- A Flat Whitehas less foam than even a latte and has essentially milk added to coffee with only a little microfoam.
- A Cafe au lait: This is where it starts to get complicated. In many parts of continental Europe, it means the same as what a Latté means in the US. In the US, it means a drink that has only warm steamed milk added to coffee and no foam.
- Cafe Macchiato: Macchiato means stained. Cafe Macchiato means liquid coffee stained with a bit of milk foam. Not to be confused with Latté Macchiato which is milk stained with coffee!
- There are of course, many other coffee plus milk drinks across the world, including some that use condensed milk.
The best part of making your own coffee drinks is that you can decide on the combination of milk, foam and coffee that suits you best, without trying to explain that to someone else!
Latté history, in brief
Lattés came into existence when Michelangelo was painting the Sistine Chapel, upside down and fell asleep.
Legend (that we just made up) has it that the Rennaisance Man was no fan of Espressos.
He needed to be cuddled with sweet milk in his espresso to create masterpieces. So, a barista took a ladder, gave the drink to the mastermind and the rest is not in any history book, but we’d like to believe it.
Others say Enzo Ferrari was inspired to make beautiful & fast cars because of lattes. The combination of the buzz of an espresso combined with the luxurious foamed milk inspired the world’s first racecar.
In a post-truth world, anything goes. Almost anything.
Really, the Latté was a home invention. Coffee lovers in Italy would regularly combine espresso with foamed milk. But the menu item of cafes that you see today is a 20th century American innovation.
Origin of the name
As for the origin of the name Latté, it literally means milk in Italian.
So, coffee combined with milk was called Caffe Latté in Italy, which got shortened to Latté in contemporary usage.
BUT, if you are in Italy and ask for a latté, you will end up with a cup of milk 😁
Secret to a Great Latté
The secret of a great latté is always the coffee you choose. This is exactly why we have sourced the best coffee beans. Roasted and ground them to perfection and then artisanally extracted them over days.
This is really slow coffee, not the high temperature-high pressure stuff extracted by machines. You can taste the difference!

Easy Latté Recipe at Home
- Choose which exotic Caffè di Artisan variant to choose to make this cup of Latté. This is the only part of the exercise that may take more than a couple of seconds and hence we are giving our recommendations at the end of the recipe.
- Pour one Caffè di Artisan liquid single-serve coffee shot into a cup of 8 oz (240 ml), froth for 2-3 seconds.
Tip: If you prefer to use a larger cup (12 or 16 Oz), you may like to use two pods.
- Heat around 5 oz (125-150 ml) milk for a luscious Latté. We recommend whole milk for the ultimate taste, but of course, you can go with low fat milk as well.
Vegan? No problem. The recipe works perfectly fine with Soy or Almond milk as well.
- Froth the hot milk for about 15 seconds to create medium - rich foam, for a Latté. Leave enough milk in the liquid form according to your taste.
If you froth for too long, you will end up with a delicious Cappuccino!
- Pour hot, frothed milk into the cup containing the frothed liquid coffee.
- Top it up with some cocoa, cinnamon or nutmeg powder if you like.
Tip: Even if you usually use sugar/ syrup/sweetener in your Latté, taste before adding any. Caffè di Artisan coffee can be zesty with a long, lingering taste...but never has burnt or bitter notes.
That's it. You have the perfect gourmet Latté in less than a minute. No need to stand in cafe queues or clean coffee machines.
Sheer perfection to enjoy with family and friends.
About as easy as boiling water...or maybe just as hard 😉

Why machine-made coffee isn't The Real Deal
Machine- made coffees simply don't cut it. Their whole process (or tech, as millennials might put it) is all seriously messed up.
Coffee machines force very hot water at high pressure through delicate coffee grounds, which is the reason for the burnt and bitter taste.
This is no way to treat something so vulnerable.
How can such violence, this savagery, yield great coffee?
Truly great coffee, extracted slowly and lovingly, does not taste bitter.
In the Caffè di Artisan micro-filtery flavors are teased out from coffee beans over days...not forced out.

(But first, a bit of coffee history: Coffee was never meant to be made by machines. It started out as a slow process. But an ugly compromise, a dirty shortcut, was invented in order to mass-produce coffee: the coffee machine. The Espresso machine was patented in 1884 - It was the start of the industrialization of coffee.)
