The 19th of November is Macchiato Day.
In Italy, a macchiato is a type of coffee with milk in it that you have in the afternoon. It is made from espresso and warmed, frothed milk and is often served in a glass cup so you can see the layers.
Have you ever had a macchiato before? If so, what did you think of it?
In 2021, Starbucks introduced their Apple Crisp Macchiato.
Macchiato is pronounced as “mak-ee-ato”.
