Milk is one of the ingredients that is totally dispensable for the most purist coffee drinkers, since they consider that it adulterates the flavor and aromas of a good coffee, and also, totally necessary for many coffee lovers because it gives the beverage a balance in its flavor, allows to lengthen the experience of drinking a coffee or simply provides light nuances that an espresso coffee cannot provide on its own.
