Caramel Macchiato Forte Recipe

Today’s Best Recipe is Caramel Macchiato Forte.

This Caramel Macchiato Forte Recipe for the Ninja Coffee Bar Brewing System is exactly what the name says coffee stained with a caramel froth.

So good.

Caramel Macchiatos are classic coffee shop drinks, combining smooth, frothy milk with caramel syrup and strong espresso. 

What exactly does Cafe Forte mean?

caffè forte{noun} strong coffee.

Now that we have that out of the way…

Espresso is a go-getter.

Take that espresso and add milk and you have a macchiato.

Add some caramel sauce and you have a Caramel Macchiato.

It won’t take long for you to give in to temptation any time of day with this essential Gourmet Espresso.

Espresso is also the base for most of the milk coffees – cafe latte, cappuccino, macchiato, and piccolo latte.

The milk adds a touch of sweetness to the coffee.

A macchiato has the highest ratio of espresso to the milk of any drink.

It is a play on “Espresso macchiato” which is an espresso with a drop or two of milk or cream.

What’s the ratio of espresso to milk for a macchiato?

Espresso Macchiato Recipe is a 1:1 Espresso to Milk Ratio

One double shot of espresso to 1 ounce or 30 milliliters of steamed milk with plenty of foam.

In terms of strength of the coffee, classic coffee is the weakest, and Rich Brew is slightly stronger.

Cafe Forte is stronger still, while Specialty is the most intense, with an almost espresso-like concentration.
