What is a Macchiato?

Whether you’re an espresso enthusiast or are new to the espresso scene, we know it can be tricky to remember the subtle differences between espresso drinks. That’s why we’ve got your back with the answer to the frequently asked question, “what is a Macchiato?”

Did you know that Dunkin’ offers a variety of crafted espresso options? That’s right, you can enjoy quality, approachable espresso beverages at a great value. When it comes to espresso, our high-quality Arabica beans are dark roasted, then freshly and finely ground. The espresso is then brewed by forcing hot water through the grounds at high pressure, delivering a rich and smooth espresso shot.

To create a beautifully layered Iced Macchiato, we pour cold milk over ice, topped with two shots of espresso. For a Hot Macchiato, a rich and bold espresso beverage, we add a layer of steamed milk, topped with two shots of espresso, then finished with milk foam. You can customize your Hot or Iced Macchiato just the way you like it with your choice of milk, almondmilk, or oatmilk, Dunkin’s newest non-dairy option, as well as classic and seasonal flavors, like caramel and mocha.
