Here is my best explanation:

'city' is the definition.
(Seattle is an example)

'latte brewed in extremely suave' is the wordplay.
'brewed' indicates anagramming the letters.
'in' indicates putting letters inside.
'extremely' suggests removing the centre.
'suave' with its middle removed is 'se'.
'latte' is an anagram of 'eattl'.
'eattl' inserted inside 'se' is 'seattle'.
