How to Make a Caramel Macchiato
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.
Froth the milk. If using the Nespresso® Aeroccino, froth milk on the medium froth setting.
Pour the Starbucks® Vanilla Syrup into the bottom of your mug.
Fill your mug ¾ full with milk and then fill the remaining ¼ with foam.
Pour espresso shot through milk and milk foam.
Drizzle caramel sauce on top.
