The coffee company has declared the Macchiato as "the official drink of Springtime," precisely because it is the drink equivalent of wearing layers (i.e. creamy, caramel-y, caffeinated layers). First on the lineup is the Iced Cinnamon Almondmilk Macchiato: Take an espresso roast and layer it with almond milk, cinnamon dolce syrup, and top it off with a caramel cross-hatch and an ample dusting of cinnamon dolce spice. Next up is the Coconut Milk Mocha Macchiato: Made hot with espresso shots poured over coconut milk and a swirl of white chocolate mocha sauce. Then that is finished off with a caramel cross-hatch and a swirl of mocha sauce for the full five-layer effect. Pure non-dairy decadence. We had a chance to sample these newbies, and both flavors were nutty, sweet, and refreshingly light — kind of like a tropical vacation in your mouth.
Both options will be available for sipping nationwide starting tomorrow on February 28th, so get geared up to go. And if you're not an iced coffee drinker, both options can be made hot OR cold, depending upon your personal preference! See you there (potentially in flip flops).
