The word latte is also very common in English-speaking countries. Compared to the Brazilian "café com leite" (café au lait), a latte comes in larger servings and has more milk than coffee (about one third espresso and two thirds steamed milk).
Another common expression is caffe mocha. It is similar to a latte, but a bit of chocolate is added.
You may also hear the expression caffe macchiato. It's just espresso with a bit of foamed milk. Not much different from our "café com leite."
Be aware of the spelling of the word espresso. It's spelt with an s and it's pronounced like an s.
