Not a Fan of the Latte Macchiato

starbucks-latte-macchiatoAs a caffeine addict, I’m usually a fan of Starbucks drinks and am willing to try out their new coffee/espresso-based drinks. I’ve tried the new Latte Macchiato twice this week, and after two purchases, I’m done with this drink.

To me, this drink is more milk than espresso. Yes, yes, I know the espresso drinks are mostly milk products, but the Latte Macchiato tastes like hot milk with a hint of espresso. I prefer the converse where the flavor is predominantly coffee/espresso. I do like the Flat White that leans more towards the coffee flavor, but if you like a more mellow Flat White then the Latte Macchiato is for you.

    Thanks for the feedback. Have been eyeing this up since it came online but was hesitant. I’m a big fan of the caramel macchiato but wondered about this one. Like you I prefer a stronger coffee presence.

      Yeah, I tried in a grande and tall sizes thinking the ratio of the mix might affect the taste. But both times, it was like milk with coffee.
