How To Make Starbucks Apple Crisp Oatmilk Macchiato

  1. To make the apple brown sugar syrup, cut the apple into small cubes and place them in a small saucepan.
  2. Then add sugar, cinnamon, vanilla extract, and water. Bring to a boil and simmer for 5 to 6 minutes. Separate the simple syrup and apples by straining and then set aside to cool.
  3. Heat oat milk in the microwave for 8 to 10 seconds then it is time to layer the beverage. First, pour your homemade brew shot of espresso into a glass, then spoon the apple syrup over. Set aside about 6 tablespoons of milk in a jar and pour the rest into the glass with the coffee.
  4. Close the lid of the jar and shake it until the milk forms a bubbly foam.

What Is Macchiatos

Macchiatos are espresso-based coffee beverages that originated in Italy. The word “macchiato” means “stained” or “spotted” in Italian, which is fitting because these drinks consist of a shot of espresso “stained” or “marked” with a small amount of dairy usually milk or milk foam.

There are several variations of macchiatos, but the two most common types are:

  1. Espresso Macchiato: This is the most basic form of macchiato and consists of a single shot of espresso “stained” with a small amount of frothy milk or milk foam. The milk is typically added in such a way that it creates a slight discoloration or “stain” on top of the espresso. The ratio of espresso to milk is heavily skewed towards the espresso, making it a strong and intense coffee experience.
  2. Caramel Macchiato: This version of macchiato is more popular in some coffee chains, like Starbucks. It includes a shot of espresso combined with steamed milk, and then it’s sweetened with caramel syrup. Unlike the traditional variant, the caramel macchiato is sweeter and creamier due to the added milk and caramel flavor.

Note that Starbucks’ version of the macchiato is almost like a latte as they only use a small amount of espresso and a large amount of milk.

Tips, Variations, And Substitutions

🍹 Apple juice – Starbucks uses this to add more apple flavor to your coffee. You may heat this up and pour a little bit into your coffee drink.

🍹 Blonde Espresso – This has a higher caffeine content than regular espresso. People think the darker the roast the stronger the brew but that’s not always the case. So if you want a stronger coffee effect use blonde espresso.

🍹 Cider – Though to some it may seem a bit strange to mix cider and coffee, the tart sweetness of the apple really helps to bring out the subtle fruity notes of the espresso, especially if you’ve brewed a shot with some high-quality espresso.

🍹 Ice – If you want to make this recipe into an iced apple crisp oat milk macchiato for those hot days but you still want that Starbucks vibe for your drink. Pour a large amount of ice before you put the milk in the glass. Make sure your ingredients are also at least room temperature or chilled in the fridge.
