Macchiato

‘Macchiato’ means ‘stained’ in Italian. A ‘Traditional’ Macchiato is an espresso stained with a dollop of foam. A ‘Seattle’ Macchiato is an espresso with hot textured milk. A ‘Latte Macchiato’ is hot textured milk with espresso poured on top. The espresso has to be poured after the milk because the  espresso stains the milk.

There is no official rule on what exactly a Macchiato is so it’s a good idea to ask the barista how he/she makes it.

There is a good topic on another website, click here for the topic.
