A cortado is an espresso drink that’s somewhere between a macchiato and a cappuccino. It’s about half express and half milk which makes it strong but small and easy to drink quickly. The barista’s at Rojo’s Roastery serve this drink in a small shot glass. The glass loses heat quickly so I had only a few seconds to make these photographs.

With the exception of the espresso itself and the Americano I think I’ve had every espresso drink on the menu. I’ve had the cappuccino, the machiatto, the latte, and the cortado. I don’t think I have a favorite yet but I’m leaning toward the machiatto.
