    Starbusk Caramel Machiatto, new recipe?

    I am a bit embarassed to admit this here...but I do enjoy the occassional Caramel Machiato. I usaully make them myself at home, but if that's not possible, Starbucks does a pretty good CM...with that said, I have had two in the last three weeks or so that tasted different from the normal CM. They both tasted as if there was a berry syrup or something like that...just curious if anyone else has noticed this? The first time I thought that maybe the milk had been scorched, but I was too far down the road to go back and ask for another...Then the second time, which was at a totally different SB, the same exact flavor...hmmmm.

    I'm pretty sure they hit it with a strong shot of vanilla....its possible they've switched that - I heard they might be switching away from tourani as they weren't given the "deal" they wanted from them...bad news for tourani....

    You guys do know that what Starbucks is making is not a macchiato right? Its a marketing gimic to sell more lattes' Which is what they are making! A latte with the espresso pored over the top. I think they did this because they cant train their baristas to do latte art, LOL!!! Wow, is Starbucks actually trying to compete with the little guy, haha.

    Ps. A macchiato (sorry I am sure I am spelling it wrong but at least I know how to make one.) is a single or double shot served in a demi toss cup with a small amount of foam... depending on the skill/preferance of the barista/coffee house, it may be a dollop on top or poured in like latte art. Thus, the "marked"espresso!

    "Garbero's" is right. The term "macchiato" means "marked" in Italian. The traditional way to prepare this drink is to pull a single or double shot of espresso into a demitasse cup and "mark" it with foam and sometimes a little milk. What Starbucks calls a Caramel Macchiato is actually a Caramel Latte.

    When people come into my store and order a Macchiato I have to make sure that they know what they are ordering. This sometimes angers knowledgable customers, because they are like, "Um, yeah we know what a Macchiato is!" But then other customers don't expect espresso, they except the syrupy Starbucks-esque version. Either way, it is annoying. Thanks, Starbucks.

    While Garbero is 100% righjt try selling a real machiatto to any of our clients vs the carmel macchiatto (sp) that starbucks is selling and we'd be laughed at by 99% of those clients...maybe 99.9%. I have 1 customer that ordres 2 shots of espresso with a dollop of half and half foam on top...and she doesn't even realize she's ordering the real deal....

    Caffè macchiato
    From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Caffè macchiato (sometimes Espresso macchiato), an Italian beverage, is espresso with a tiny dollop of steamed milk on top. "Macchiato" simply means "marked" or "stained," and in the case of caffè macchiato, this means literally "espresso stained/marked with milk." Traditionally it is made with one shot of espresso, and significantly less milk or milk foam. However, some newer cafes tend to add steamed milk to the espresso in a 1:1 ratio, as well as mixing the milk into the espresso, making it more like a miniature caffè latte.

    Another variant of the drink, Latte macchiato, conversely means "milk stained/marked (with espresso)", which involves a higher steamed milk-to-espresso ratio. However, in certain preparations (which differ from place to place), latte macchiato has not much difference in milk-to-espresso ratio when compared to the caffè latte; caffè lattes are normally one-third espresso to two-thirds steamed milk.

    The "Caramel macchiato" served by Starbucks is actually a Latte macchiato with vanilla syrup and caramel topping, leading to some confusion.
    mmm espresso

    Thanks for clearing that up mrbox. People jump at the chance to disprove starbucks in any way possible. I don't see what the big deal is. Starbucks started as a small shop, just like all the other small local shops. They weren't spawned by a media conglomerate or a billionaire...what's the problem?

    The Caramel Macchiato recipe has not changed. Sometimes certain stores will get a request for a drink to be made a certain way so often that they unoffically change the recipe. There's a small chance that is what you're running into here. I've heard tales of Starbuck's down south using rasberry in their caramel macchiato's, which is not standard recipe obviously.

    unit maybe you should read: " POUR YOUR HEART INTO IT" Autor: Howard Schultz. It clearly shows that SB didn't start on humble beginnings...Yes the origional SB did but tnot the entity we know today. My .002 book review.

    here's the recipe 4 CM

    Hey, I think we should give credit to where credit is due. SBUX popularized and educated the masses of this country about coffee and the coffe house atmosphere. It's up to us to further educate our customers as to the true definition & flavor of espresso/machiato/latte/cappucino.

    Anyhow here's the recipe for Caramel Machiato

    for a Tall cup (12oz)
    3squirts of vanilla syrup,
    fill w/ steameamed milk
    top w/ foam
    pour in 1 shot of espresso
    and then top it all w/ caramel sauce in a grid pattern

    Since I like the flavor of the caramel sauce most, I just buy their sauce and use that on my latte. That way I can make it just as sweet as I like it.
