just to let you know, there is an error in the macchiato. A macchiato is an espresso with a ‘stain’ or splash of milk, not the reverse as you have it.
I think that is the correct way too but there is also some debate about how to make a macchiato.
A macchiato has a splash of milk. The cappuccino has only foam.
Not overly accurate, esp the pronunciation of many. cool page though
There are two macchiatos shown. The espresso macchiato is espresso with a bit of milk foam. The latte macchiato is milk with a bit of espresso, which is also correct. There’s not just one kind of macchiato.
where’s the ristretto?
Actually, that is a macchiato. What you’re referring to is known as an espresso macchiato.
That would be why it is labeled a “latte macchiato”. Latte being the key word…more milk.
Love the graphics. They should put these up in all coffee houses. How can I get a print?
This is the Rosetta stone for Starbucks; well done.

Espresso macchiato is espresso with a splash of milk. Latte macchiato is milk with a splash of espresso. Dig?
Cafe au Lait is shown wrong. Considering you are supposed to pour them simultaneously, they should be side by side.
Great visual! At our coffee shop (when we had it), we did lots of educating on different types of drinks. SOOO many **Bucks fans think a macchiato is a carmel latte. Any new customer requesting a macchiato was politely asked “would you like sweetener with that?” and if they gave us a puzzled look and said “doesn’t that come with caramel?” got the explanation of drinks.

I love love love it!!!Deb
Absolutely brilliant! I’m a coffee addict and this is the first diagram that I’ve found to help others understand how to make the perfect coffee. Thanks!
You are looking at the latte macchiato, the espresso macchiato is listed at the top
the cappuccino is correct. foam only implies the cappuccino is dry. otherwise the cappuccino is approx. 1/2 milk 1/2 foam.
Thanks for the recipes.
in the last 2 diagrams, what do they mean by ‘coffee’?
That was my question as well..
Espresso Macchiato is wrong, at least here in italy we mean it as espresso with a tiny bit of milk with foam so Cappuccino is basically the same but with more milk and a lot more foam!
I haven’t read all post but just from the first few….Your all wrong even the person who created this…..A Macchiato is steamed milk then foam topped with espresso. but it can be stirred. A cappuccino does have steamed milk but it contains more foam then milk it must be light or else its just a latte.
If you insist on poisoning good coffee with milk there’s no hope for you.
Thank for sharing. I just started drinking coffee a year ago. I’m not a fanatic but I do enjoy it. Great chart as well. I’ll have to mix it up a bit now instead of trying the same old cup of joe.

There is nothing wrong with the coffee recipes listed here. These are the original italian espresso coffee recipes. Ppl in north america are using these recipes but the prepare them wrong.
What you’re talking about is what they call the espresso macchiato, aka the origin of macchiato. It is shown correctly on the first row. It’s generally done with milk foam to create the fluffy texture, not with milk itself. The one you thought they sowed incorrectly is a latte macchiato, which is what most cafe call macchiato nowadays in North America. That is also shown correctly and is a different drink than the espresso macchiato. Please don’t confuse the two.. @italiana
