Espresso Macchiato

Definition: A single or double espresso topped with a dollop of heated, texturized milk and (usually) served in a small cup. “Macchiato” means “mark” or “stain.” In this case, the “mark” is the dollop of milk on top of the espresso.

Try it if you prefer your espresso to take charge of your drink's flavor.
