Hello Professional Baristas. Right now I am drinking a smooth light blended Iced Latte. It was necessary to buy a light roast, I prefer dark roasts.
In the past couple of weeks curiosity has been tackling me. What is the proper dosage for an iced latte if there is 3 oz ( double shot) and what is the proper amount of milk for a single shot? How many ounces of milk should be added to 1.5 and 3 oz of espresso?
We all know, at least professional self taught Baristas how much milk, froth and espresso is in a cappuccino. 1/3, 1/3 and 1/3.
How do we dose and apply the appropriate portion of milk to Espresso based drinks.
Thank you for your professional facts.
