What is a macchiato?
« on: April 03, 2019, 05:29:36 am »
If you wander into any respectable coffee shop these days, you’ll be greeted with a host of alluring sounding coffee options. You may be familiar with some, but have you heard of them all? It’s wonderful to have a choice when it comes to selecting your morning blend, but what happens when some of the names on the menu mean nothing to you? If you don’t want to take any chances and ruin your morning, it’s wise to read up on different types of coffee and find out more about them.

If you’re not familiar with the marvel that is the macchiato yet, you’ve come to the right place.

A macchiato is primarily made from espresso, and it offers an alternative to the classic espresso for those who want a powerful flavor hit with a touch of creaminess provided by the spot of milk. Most countries have adopted the Italian name, but if you’re looking for a macchiato in Portugal, you may need to order ‘cafe pingado,’ which translates as ‘coffee with a drop.’ This relates to the splash of milk.
