A Caramel Macchiato is a coffee drink made with espresso, milk, and caramel. There are many variations of this popular drink, but the basic ingredients remain the same.

Espresso is a strong coffee that is brewed by forcing hot water through ground coffee beans. It has a rich flavor and is used in many popular coffee drinks.

Milk is used to create a smooth and creamy texture in the Caramel Macchiato. Whole milk is typically used, but you can also use skim milk or non-dairy milk alternatives.

Caramel is used to sweeten and add flavor to the drink. You can buy Caramel Syrup at most grocery stores, or make your own Caramel Sauce.

Caramel Macchiato Recipe
Servings 1 person



  • 14 oz reduced fat or whole milk
  • 2 tbsp vanilla syrup
  • 2 oz espresso
  • – Caramel sauce to drizzle



  • Prepare the espresso, if you have an espresso machine that would work great, if not you can pickup an inexpensive Moka Pot and make the espresso using it instead.
  • While the espresso is brewing, heat up the milk. Use a milk frother to create foam from the milk. If you don’t have milk frother, you can use French press or Regular wire whisk. (Just add the milk to the French Press and push and pull the plunger up and down until milk foam forms).
  • Pour the espresso into a measuring cup.
  • Add the vanilla and milk to a cup, and pour the espresso on top of the frothy milk. This will create a “mark” in the foam. (Fun Fact: Macchiato means “marked” in Italian).
  • The final step is to drizzle the caramel on top.
