How to Make a Caramel Macchiato

STEP ONE

Prepare 1 shot of espresso.

 

- We recommend brewing Starbucks® Espresso Roast via an espresso machine. If you don’t have an espresso machine, you can use a Stovetop Moka Pot to make espresso-like coffee. 

- You can also brew Starbucks® By Nespresso Espresso Roast capsules for authentic café-style espresso.

STEP TWO

Froth the milk. If using the Nespresso® Aeroccino, froth milk on the medium froth setting.

STEP THREE

Pour the Starbucks® Vanilla Syrup into the bottom of your mug.

STEP FOUR

Fill your mug ¾ full with milk and then fill the remaining ¼ with foam.

STEP FIVE

Pour espresso shot through milk and milk foam.

STEP SIX

Drizzle caramel sauce on top.

STEP SEVEN

Enjoy.
