Macchiato means “marked,” and for this espresso drink, hot espresso is poured into a demitasse cup, then marked with foam from steamed milk.
- 3 tablespoons milk
- 6 tablespoons freshly brewed espresso
If you have an espresso machine with a steamer and frothing (foaming) attachment, steam and froth the milk following the manufacturer’s directions. Or, you can heat the milk and froth it using a manual frother following the manufacturers directions. (Whichever way you steam and froth the milk, it will increase 2 or more times in volume.)
Pour half of the espresso into each of 2 warm demitasse cups. Top each serving with 1 to 2 teaspoons foam. Serve immediately.
Makes Two 1 1/2 ounce servings (with a little milk leftover)
