Starting today, Starbucks customers will be able to purchase a Latte Macchiato, a new drink on the coffee chain’s menu.
Coffee novices might think it sounds like the brand is running out of beverage names, but the latte macchiato is well-known among java experts. The drink is traditionally made by pouring shots of espresso into a glass of steamed milk so that it looks like the coffee “stains” the milk, as opposed to pouring frothed milk into the espresso (a cappuccino), or putting a dollop of steamed milk on top of the espresso (a macchiato).
I’ll just stick to my favorite order, a regular coffee with two shots of espresso. (no cream or sugar) 🙂
