What is Macchiato?
Saying Macchiato in different languages:
French – Macchiato
Spanish – Macchiato
Gujarati – મેકીઆટો
Hindi – मैकिआटो
Macchiato is pronounced as ‘mah-key-AH-toe’.
It is basically of Italian coffee culture along with the espresso and cappuccino. Generally, it is an espresso served in a coffee cup with a small amount of foamed milk on top.
Its name Macchiato means “Marked” and that’s why you can see it as a cross between an espresso and a cappuccino.
Italians only drink cappuccino in the morning, so a Macchiato is served at afternoon as it is having a little milk in the espresso.
- Latte Macchiato
It is a cup of hot milk with a shot of espresso, but it does not have caramel-flavored syrup added, which is what the chain coffee shop would have you believe is a true macchiato.
- Espresso Macchiato
It is espresso served in a coffee cup with a small amount of foamed milk on top.
There is another type: Caramel Macchiato. In this type, the milk gets marked not once, but twice. First by shots of our signature espresso, and then by our rich caramel sauce.
