A latte is supposed to be hot.

Most Lattes are served hot at temperatures of 150 F to 165 F degrees.

Latte milk is steamed fairly hot, usually between 135 and 150 degrees, but only has a thin layer of microfoam.

 If you're in the mood for an iced drink, iced lattes are refreshing and smooth.

They're typically made with 1-2 ounces of espresso, 8-14 ounces of cold milk (unsteamed), and ice.

One of the main reasons for espresso coffee drink not being served hot enough is using cold cups; when the hot beverage is poured into the cup the cold ceramic cup absorbs heat energy from the liquid causing it to cool down.

An iced latte is simply milk mixed into espresso with ice in the glass.

Lattes are hot, but there's nothing wrong with serving a warm latte in the comfort of your own home.

The temperature of your latte truly is up to you.

Some people also enjoy a cold Latte which is okay as well but when you buy a Latte it is served hot.

Although you can also order an iced latte if you prefer and it will be served cold.

Just ask for an Iced Latte and they will serve you an iced and cold Latte.

One might immediately think that the main difference between a latte and an iced coffee is that a latte is a hot drink and an iced coffee is a cold drink (though you could also order an iced latte, which is also a cold drink and prepared differently).

A large latte contains almost one third of the daily recommended fat intake for women.

Add a vanilla shot and you 380 calories and 14.5g of fat in each large cup.

This is equivalent to ten rashers of bacon.
