The baristas at Cantina 817 are fantastic and I the macchiato I had the pleasure of enjoying was made to perfection. The atmosphere was perfection in its self and I would highly recommend Cantina 817 to any lover of good coffee.
Cafe Macchiato is Italian for "Marked"
The Café Macchiato is a small, simple drink consisting of; an espresso shot or double shot that is marked with a touch of textured milk.
The macchiato is neither a latte, nor cappuccino rather, it is a shot of espresso that is 'marked' on top with a stain of foam to cover the espresso and protect it from air. Though small in stature, a Macchiato can be one of the most difficult espresso drinks for a barista to master.
