How to make a Macchiato at home

by Dom Majdandzic 14 Jan 2020
When a macchiato is perfectly made it can be a time stopping moment. Imagine a coffee that has the soft mouthfeel of toasted marshmallow mixed with lightly toasted hazelnut and a sweet maple syrup finish. The macchiato is maybe the most different coffee on the menu - it's not black, it's not white, it’s reasonably intense, but it is wonderfully smooth and creamy! Is it the perfect coffee? I’ll let you make that call. For me, it’s pretty close to perfection! On a recent visit to La Marzocco Sydney HQ we made a video about how to brew a macchiato and double macchiato using their impressive La Marzocco Linea Mini espresso machine. So sit back, relax and enjoy. And below the video I’ve included detailed show notes and photos, so don’t worry about taking notes, everything you need to know is included below.


Show notes

Macchiato

For a single mac, this process makes two separate cups.
  • 22- 23g dose of coffee into the portafilter basket
  • Brewed coffee portion is 20g total yield, divided over two demitasse cups - enough for you and a friend.

Double Macchiato

For a double macchiato, extract both spouts into the same cup.
  • 22- 23g dose of coffee into the portafilter basket
  • Brewed coffee portion is 15-20g yield into one demitasse cup

The milk portion

In both instances single and double, aim to keep your milk texture like runny paint. If you do this the macchiato won't dry out and will give the experience of sweet and creamy toasted hazelnut marshmallow!
  • Pour the single shot half full with your perfectly textured milk.
  • Pour the double mac to the brim of the cup with your perfectly textured milk
A tip: if you need to divide your milk or pour off some foamy milk before starting to pour your macchiato please do this as it will ensure the milk is a perfectly silky runny paint like texture. It's that simple! A great thing about making macchiato’s is not worrying about fancy patterns on top, but to simply enjoy it’s wonderful flavours and silky mouthfeel. And the experience is so much richer if you savour it over a conversation with a friend. Hope you have the pleasure of making and enjoying a beautiful Macchiato soon. Keep it special Dom
