Latte macchiato not only appeals to coffee fans because of its taste, but also because it looks so inviting. Taste is also in the eye of the beholder! The following suggestions will help you to keep the three different layers separate in the glass:
- Pour a small amount of cold milk into the glass.
- Wait about 20 seconds between making the milk foam and the coffee.
- Set the the coffee temperature to "high".
You can also add various syrups to your latte macchiato for a special treat. First place the syrup in the glass and foam the milk into the syrup. The milk then takes on the delicate flavour of your choice.
Latte macchiato is Italian for "stained milk". Today's en vogue coffee speciality was originally a children's drink in Italy.
