Cafe chain Starbucks has added an all-new cross drink hybrid to its main menu, dubbed the Latte Macchiato that brings together the most popular elements of both hot beverages. The drink is located in-between a cafe americano and a flat white in terms of milkiness offering a shot of expresso topped with foam.

The Latte Macchiato differs from any Starbucks drink on the current menu by offering a espresso-based beverage topped with little milk and a heavy dollop of whipped foam. The drink is a milky alternative to coffee-oriented beverages such as the americano or doppio, but not as creamy as a caffe latte. It offers an in-between boldness that is ideal for coffee drinkers seeking a drink that is somewhat strong, but not solely focused on overpowering espresso notes.
