Cortado

The name Cortado comes from the Spanish word "cortar," which means "to cut," referring to the milk in a Cortado cutting through the espresso. Created in the Basque country of Spain, Cortado became extremely popular all over the Galicia region of northern Portugal, and even Cuba. A Cortado differs from a latte and cappuccino in that it contains little to no foam, a characteristic of most Spanish drinks.
