Milch


Explanation:
'latte' in Italian is milk
lattes could be plural (in English)
it's a bit strange but in the context you'tre probably right about Milch
Milchkafee is 'Café con latte' though (as far a my Italian goes)

Caffe latte


Explanation:
I bet this is a US English text - "latte" is simply American short speak for "Caffe latte", the Italian specialty that has become extremely popular at least here on the US West Coast. Your term, lattes, is the plural...
It's something you hear daily at any coffe place, e/g. "2 double lattes".

As German does also use the Italian names, I'd simply say "Caffe latte".
