Latte Macchiato

Italy

When coffee meets hot frothed milk

This is a very basic breakfast drink and the name literally means "stained milk": it refers to the coffee which is poured into the hot frothed milk.

 

Ingredients

  1. 1 espresso
  2. 130 ml hot frothed milk

Method

Make an espresso coffee. Heat and froth the milk. Pour out the frothed milk, then the espresso coffee

Service

Serve in a tall tumbler or 160 ml cappuccino cup

Curiosity

The latte macchiato is often confused with the caffelatte. The difference lies in the amount of milk foam on top of the coffee - in the latte macchiato there's about 1.5 cm while there's almost none on the caffelatte.
