The use of "al" and "con" with "te" and "caffe"

AR--9 January 14, 2018, 3:22 am
Why is "al" and "con" used differently with "te" and "caffe"?
In the lessons, "tea with milk" is written "te al latte", but "coffee with milk" is written "caffe con latte".

Thanks

Hi AR,

You can write both tè al latte and tè con latte, but caffè al latte would sound strange. When it comes to food, you can generally use either or con, but this rule doesn't always apply.

Hope this helps!
