Macchiato, meaning something like “spotted”, is an Espresso with a dash of foamed milk.
At first sight it resembles a small Cappuccino but even if the ingredients are the same as those used for Cappuccino a Macchiato has a much stronger and aromatic taste.
•1 dl milk
•Sugar and/or cocoa powder (depending on your taste)
•Espresso cup (Capacity about 70 ml)
