This lovely, flavoured coffee consisting of high quality 100% Arabica beans from Mexico and Central America is blended for a perfect balanced cup. This blend suits perfectly the addition of Caramel flavouring creating a luxurious, rich flavour and slightly sweet flavour with a great aroma. Café Macchiato is an espresso drink with a small amount of milk, usually foamed. In Italian macchiato means stained or spotted. Apparently, baristas ‘marked’ the espresso with milk on top of the crème. Our coffee is vegan. Keep it in the fridge or indeed the freezer and it will maintain the fresh taste, you can grind the beans immediately from the freezer as they will not need thawing. I have also started using 90o water rather than boiling water, give it a try.
