    Clara12's Note:

    Sitting in a sunny street cafe, watching people passing by and sipping a good mug of coffee - do you like it as much as I do? Last summer I couldn't get enough of Latte Macchiato (blotchy milk), a wonderful milk coffee from Italy which is very popular in Europe right now. As it is very expensive in the street cafe, I tried to prepare it at home and succeeded. It is no fuss to make if you follow the instructions. Most important for the layered look is to pour the espresso slowly into the foamy milk. Make sure to use heavy glasses which won't break when filling in the hot liquids. Enjoy the summer feeling!

    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Heat milk in the microwave or in a saucepan over medium-high heat (do not boil).
    2. 2
      In the meantime prepare instant espresso according to package direction.
    3. 3
      As soon as the milk is hot give it into a blender or food processor and blend on high for 40 seconds or until the milk has a velvety milk foam.
    4. 4
      Fill glasses up to 2/3 with milk foam.
    5. 5
      Now pour hot espresso VERY SLOWLY into the foam, I suggest to pour it from the rim.
    6. 6
      If you like, you can turn a spoon around and pour the espresso slowly over its back side.
    7. 7
      After 1 minute the drink will divide in 3 layers which is very nice!

      I've been trying to make this for a year, ever since I had it at a cafe in Galveston, TX. Have tried several other methods but it never would layer. This worked great first try! I used 1% milk and a hand frother in an Irish coffe mug. Perfect.

      I thought this worked out very well! The taste is excellent and it comes out just like a pretty coffee drink you would get in a European cafe. I used freshly brewed espresso and then proceeded with the rest of the recipe. Also,I didn't notice until after I had already prepared this successfully with skim milk that I was supposed to use whole. I thought it was just wonderful using the skim milk and it frothed up fine using a wand style blender. Thanks for sharing.

      I made this with regular soy milk and brewed espresso and it was fabulous! Thanks for posting the recipe! Much cheaper than going to the local coffee shop... and better, too.
