Starbucks Hazelnut Macchiato

Starbucks has recently introduced a new featured drink, the hazelnut macchiato. Back in my teenage days I was obsessed with caramel macchiatos from Starbucks, but I’ve since moved onto other drinks. That being said, I was still eager to try the new hazelnut macchiato because I enjoy hazelnut flavours.

The word macchiato means “marked” in Italian. This refers to the traditional cafe macchiatos that were prepared with a shot of espresso and a mark of milk foam on top. Another variation of the macchiato is the latte macchiato, which is mostly steamed milk with a mark of espresso. This is the style of macchiato Starbucks prepares and they mark their macchiatos with a drizzle of sauce.

The hazelnut macchiato is the same as the caramel one in regards to the vanilla flavour shot, espresso shot, and steamed milk. The only difference is that instead of caramel sauce, they drizzle a new hazelnut sauce on top.

I liked this version and I didn’t find it as overwhelmingly sweet as the caramel one. It is still a sweet drink though, and it could easily fulfil your dessert craving.

Something I would recommend doing if you order any macchiatos is to give them a good stir. It wrecks the pretty design on top, but the flavours are more evenly distributed.

Recommendation:

Yes, if you like Starbucks caramel macchiatos and similar drinks.
