(NEWSER) – "#Starbucks newest drink is the Latte Macchiato. WTF is that?" OK, that's one way of tweeting it. The answer is that latte macchiatos—available at Starbucks starting Tuesday in the US, Canada, and some locations in Latin America—combine espresso with "steamy creamed whole milk," the company tells Us Weekly.
How does that differ from a macchiato or a latte? Well, a macchiato is an espresso with milk foam on top and a latte is an espresso under steamed milk and milk foam, the Huffington Post reports. With latte macchiatos, baristas first pour in the milk, then the espresso.
