Caramel Macchiato – A Beautiful Mess


I love enjoying a relaxing afternoon, and lately I’ve been loving the caramel macchiato. This is a copycat Starbucks caramel macchiato recipe. You can learn how to make a traditional macchiato here. This version is like a caramel-flavored latte macchiato. It’s sweet, caffeinated, and a perfect morning or afternoon treat, IMO.

ingredients

  • espresso
  • Milk
  • Simple syrup – you can buy it at the store or make your own
  • Caramel sauce

I love the Torani caramel sauce (And other flavors like chocolate). It’s a great consistency for drinks or to drizzle over ice cream and I love the squeeze bottle packaging.

How to make caramel macchiato

Prepare espresso according to your machine’s instructions.

Heat the milk and froth (foaming). If your espresso machine has a frother wand, you can do this at the same time. Or you can use a Milk foamOr heat it in a pan and use a Handy frothing stick Or even a whisk.

Add simple syrup to your mug of coffee. Then pour in the milk and foam. Then pour fresh espresso through the foam. Drizzle caramel sauce on top.

Optional: Sometimes I drizzle some caramel sauce along the side of the coffee cup as well as the top. It’s up to you!

Home espresso machines

We’ve tried many espresso makers over the years, and here are our favorites at different price points and skill levels:

  • Automatic espresso machine for cafe – My current device. It uses any whole beans, so if you use high quality beans, you will get a high quality espresso. It automatically makes espresso shots (no barista skills required) and includes a milk frother wand to heat and froth the milk. We have used this machine almost every day since we got it nine months ago and we love it! Comes in three colors.
  • Stovetop espresso – This is the cheapest way to make espresso at home. It is labor intensive and you will also need a way to grind your beans to get the best results. But this is a classic method that works great when done well.
  • Breville Barista Touch -We bought this for a good friend as a wedding gift once and they said they loved it. It’s a sophisticated machine that will need some barista skills to operate, but it’s an excellent home espresso machine.
  • Nespresso Vertuo – For those who want an espresso maker that uses pods, this is my favorite. Depending on the capsule you use, it can make espresso or coffee.
