Topic: What's in a name? (9 msgs / 139 lines)
1) From: Gerald Allen Green
John, caffè "machiato," as you spelled it (properly, "macchiato"), is defined
as coffee with a dash of milk; but, as all of us *real* coffee drinkers know,
the important thing is that macchiato means spotted or mottled, which is what
the milk looks like in the coffee.  I never heard of caramel in coffee, but I
wouldn't be surprised at anything Americans drink.  --  Jerry

I have a question to pose to this learned group.  Today I had a double shot
of espresso with frothed milk in a very small cup. The barista called it a
"machiato."   What then do you call a Latte that has caramel added?  I have
been ordering that at another place where they call THAT a Machiato.  It
doesn't matter as long as I have enough mind left to remember which
establishment I'm in when I order.

Some people drink from the fountain of knowledge while others just gargle.

Hi, John-
Tha answer to your question is simple. 'Abomination'.
Your barista was correct. *$ is not.

Charbucks does make a distincton.
drink #1 is called Espresso Macchiato
drink #2 is called Carmel Macchiato
My guess is they sell alot more of the carmel, so without stating "espresso"
you might end up with a carmel-flavored latte.

From the mouth of the of a *$ RMT (who's renting a room in my house):
Macchiato:  Esspresso marked with a spoonful of steamed milk served in a
small (1-2 oz estimate) Italian style cup
Caramel Macchiato:  Vanilla syrup then steamed milk marked with espresso
shot(s) on top then drizzled with real caramel (not syrup)
While *$ may not be my favorite, they sure got the utopia vacuum pot right!

Didja hear about the couple - a middle eastern woman married to a Lutheran 
batchelor farmer from Wisconsin - who named their first-born child Yassir 
Ubetcha ?

I wonder where they got that name from?
...perhaps thishttp://play.napster.com/track/16058807-- 
At some point between French and fire, it really doesn't matter much what
the "origin character" of the coffee was ...
