Starbucks has announced its newest beverage, Starbucks Hazelnut Macchiato, available now at participating Starbucks stores nationwide. One of the most popular flavors in Starbucksretail stores, second only to vanilla, the decadent, layered Hazelnut Macchiato is a delicious new way to enjoy this exceedingly popular flavor – hot or iced.
“Starbucks baristas use the world’s finest espresso to craft each beverage by hand, with unparalleled passion and expertise,” said Cliff Burrows, president, Americas, Starbucks Coffee Company. “No beverage better demonstrates this level of craftsmanship than our signature four-layered Macchiato, and we know customers will love this new member of our espresso beverage family.”
In Italian, “macchiato” simply means “marked.” A customer favorite, Starbucks Caramel Macchiato is one of the company’s most popular drinks with a loyal following. As with the beloved Starbucks Caramel Macchiato, the new Hazelnut Macchiato features steamed velvety-smooth milk “marked” with our signature, perfectly balanced espresso. The drinks are finished with a drizzle of buttery sweet caramel for our Caramel Macchiato, and nutty, toasty-sweet hazelnut for our new Hazelnut Macchiato. A beautifully layered drink, the Macchiato’s flavors and textures evolve with every sip. As with our espresso beverages, the espresso shots used in our Hazelnut and Caramel Macchiatos are expertly pulled between 18 and 23 seconds and added to the drink within 10 seconds to help ensure a perfectly balanced, rich espresso flavor.
