Back in the days, coffee were just known as "coffee". Till big coffee companies such as Starbucks and Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf and others were introduced, the art of drinking coffee became more sophisticated. For example a cup of coffee with milk is no longer just "coffee with milk", rather it can either be called as Cappuccino or Cafe Latte, depending on the amount of milk that is added to the cup of coffee. There are also coffee names that people have a hard time pronouncing due to the origin of its name. One good example will be "Macchiato".
Macchiato, is a fairly popular coffee name that we come across everyday. The name Macchiato originally is an Italian name which literally means “marked” or “stained”. Traditionally, Caffé Macchiato or Espresso Macchiato is a shot or two of espresso. What "marks" the espresso is the actually the small amount of steamed milk that is added. In different regions, where this cup of Macchiato is tasted, either the steamed milk or the espresso has the "marking" role depending on which comes first.
