What is a latte macchiato?

Latte macchiato is a coffee beverage that means stained milk. This refers to the method of preparation, where in the milk is "stained" by the addition of espresso. It may be prepared simply by frothing milk, generally producing generous foam, pouring it into a glass, and adding espresso and is served in a tall glass and has distinctive layers between the foam, espresso and milk with the foam on top, espresso below the foam and milk at the bottom.

Ingredients

  • Espresso coffee capsule in espresso (40 ml) of your choice (our Gourmesso preferences go to Etiopia Blend Forte and Honduras Pura Forte)
  • 100_120 ml of cold milk
  • Optional: cocoa powder or cinnamon according to taste
  • You will need

  • Tall recipe glass (350 ml)
  • Aeroccino milk frother or your Nespresso machine's steam nozzle, or the Lattissima Plus machine
  • Preparation

    The latte macchiato it’s served on a tall, narrow glass and consists of three layers, which should be mixed with each other only slightly. The bottom layer forms hot milk, then follows a layer consisting of an Espresso and finally the top layer consists of milk foam.

    Tip: It is important that the espresso is hotter than the milk so that the espresso and the milk do not mix.

  • First froth the milk using the steam nozzle of your Nespresso®* machine or the Aeroccino - milk frother and warm it up until it becomes a velvety froth
  • When the froth is ready fill the tall glass with the prepared frothed milk
  • The froth, being lighter than the milk will naturally separate and settle on top. The first two layers have now been formed
  • Now choose an espresso coffee capsule and put it in the machine (our Gourmesso preferences go to Etiopia Blend Forte and Honduras Pura Forte)
  • Pour your chosen espresso coffee capsule in espresso (40 ml) directly over the frothed milk in your tall glass
  • Being lighter than the milk, the coffee will gently settle between the two existing layers creating a third color variation
  • The result is a magnificent and delicious latte macchiato
  • Add delically add 2 or 3 spoons of froth according to your taste (optional)
  • Add sugar and decorate it with cocoa powder or cinnamon according to taste (optional)
  • Or as an alternative you can prepare a cappuccino in one touch using the Lattissima Plus machine
  • What Nespresso®* compatible blend is the best for making a latte macchiato?

    We typically recommend our darker, more intensely roasted blends for Latte Macchiatos or any drinks with milk. The more robust flavors retain their unique qualities despite the addition of milk and sugar.

  • The Honduras Pura Forte is also one of our strongest and darkest roast espresso, with an intensity of 9 and is side by side with the Etiopia our favourite choice for latte macchiatos. This blend is mildly aromatic, low in acidity, and features a subtle note of chocolate working well in milk-based drinks. For all chocolate lovers this is definitely the right choice.
  • Which other compatible blends we recommend?

  • The Etiopia Blend Forte is our second strongest and darkest roast espresso, with an intensity of 10. You can trace the origin of this classic drink back to Austrians living in Italy who wanted to enjoy their traditional Capuchins, which makes it the perfect base to prepare your next latte macchiatos or cappuccino at home. Also one of our favourites for latte macchiatos and cappuccinos.
  • The Ristretto Blend Forte is our strongest and darkest roast espresso, with an intensity of 10.
  • The SFCC House Blend Decaf Lungo is a mild yet bold espresso, with an intensity of 6. It’s the perfect choice in case you want it in decaf, since it works well in milk-based drinks.
  • The Colombia Arabica Mezzo has an intensity level of 7 and provides a velvety, floral flavor that is light in cocoa aroma. If you want a blonder roast this one isn't as dark but still holds up with milk well.
  • We also suggest that you experiment with your machine and favorite capsules to determine which blends and proportions suit your tastes the best.
