Obviously not the real way but us dairy free can have it too and it does taste very good. Algeria is a former French colony, “Café au lait” and “caffè latte” are used as contrasting terms, to indicate whether the beverage is served in the “French” or the “Italian” way – the former being in a white porcelain cup or bowl, the latter in a kitchen glass and always made from an espresso machine, whereas “Café au lait” might be espresso or dark coffee based.
