So, Starbucks has a new drink that everyone is making a lot of fuss about. So naturally, I tried it. It's the latte macchiato, and it only comes in one size- tall.


The drink is an espresso drink (my favorite kind!). It consists of frothy steamed milk, marked with two shots of espresso. I like my coffee a little sweet, so I sweetened it with two packets of Splenda. Like most lattes, the drink had a great smooth consistency and went down really easy. 

If you have ever had a caramel macchiato, this drink is very similar. As far as I can tell, the only difference is the caramel macchiato is the added vanilla syrup and caramel. For this reason, I am truly not sure why there was such a huge deal being made about this drink. It doesn't seem like anything new to me. 

I can tell you, however, that I could immediately feel the effects of the espresso after one sip. It's a really good drink, and definitely did what I was hoping it would do, energy-wise. It runs at about $4 for a tall. So, I personally probably won't get it again. I love a venti (for a hot drink) and a trenta (for a cold drink), and since this only runs in a tall, it's not my cup of tea.
