I cannot eat chocolate but would like to drink a latte. Is there any chocolate in a regular latte? I know you can get a chocolate latte, but need to know if a plain latte has chocolate in it.

No, it does not. A latte is espresso with steamed milk and a thin layer of steamed milk foam on top. Assuming your barista knows what he is doing, you'd have to specially ask to get chocolate in a latte, and then it would be called a mocha (in the US).

  • And foam! Foam is important.

  • Not a big deal, you nailed the substance of the question. I've just been criticized before for forgetting foam. I'm not a barista, just a pedant.

  • It's got a bit of foam on the top unless it's a wet latte, which is milk with no foam.
