A misto is a "cafe americano(which is a shot of espresso served over hot water)," with steamed milk on top. Not to be confused with a cafe au lait, which is drip coffee with steamed milk on top.

A type of coffee drink made with steamed milk and coffee instead of espresso. Similar to a latté, only less intense.

An americano is just espresso shots with hot water, and misto simply refers to steamed milk. The drink is made up of equal parts of each, and at Starbucks topped with foam.
