    What's Macchiato ?

    Espresso Macchiato . [mock-e-AH-toe] Some say this is espresso with about a half inch of milk foam (no steamed milk). But some strongly disagree. One enthusiast writes of the above definition: "Surely not. Macchiato (lit. "marked") is a dash of milk or cream in espresso." Another writes "the chap who serves me espresso, and who has been roasting coffee and selling and leasing machines for several years ....tells me that Macchiato is made with half-and-half."
    From Australia: " 'Macchiato' has two variations here - long and short. 'Short' is an espresso (in the mandatory micro cup) with just a dash of milk. This is the default at most trad. Italian mum & dad restaurants. 'Long' is a _glass_ with two shots of espresso, and small amount of milk. The peak of macchiato making is to pour the milk in so slowly that it never makes it to the bottom of the glass. The resulting layered drink has been known to inspire fear in the novice drinker. This the default at coffee houses. Both of these _seemed_ to have started out in small glasses (about 175ml) but the fashionable have demanded ever larger glasses - of about 375ml.

    Starbucks defines Espresso Macchiato as "1 shot of espresso in a demitasse [topped with] a small dollop of foamed milk.

    Finally, this somewhat similar variation: "The coffeehouse I work at serves as Macchiato, a layered cappuccino. 1/3 steamed milk, 1/3 espresso sitting on that (not mixed), and finally 1/3 milk foam. When served in glass, it is quite elegant, and when drunk, the foam insulates the coffee for temperatures sake, the espresso hits the palate first, and finally, the slightly sweet steamed milk washes the palate. a fine beverage, though perhaps not the standard."

    Last saturday afternoon, I turned on the barbeque
    (no, no praws, snags with barbie sause on white rolls, the real ocker way!)
    (no, no shrimp, sausages with BBQ sauce on white rolls, the real manly way!)
    I ran out of gas so I took the ute to the servo to get the tank filled up again...
    I ran out of gas so I took the utility vehicle(read: pick up truck) to the petrol station to fill up the tank (for the BBQ)
    But unfortunately a drongo banana bender was working there as the usual bloke took a sickie.
    but unfortunately a stupid person from queensland was working there as the usual guy took a sick day
    This guy was a stupid Galah and he hooked up the tank wrong, and when I told him he said 'she'll be apples' but when I insisted he spit the dummy..
    This guy was an ***** and he hooked up the tank wrong, and when I told him he said it would be OK, when I insisted he got angry
    needless to say I shot through without my gas bottle being filled and I couldnt finish the snags..
    needless to say I left without my gas bottle being filled and I couldnt finish the sausages
    So with no food, but with a nice slab of XXXX, I hit the turps.
    So I was with no food, but with a carton (i.e. 24) of beer (brand XXXX, pronounce: 4-ex), I started drinking
    Soon I was a full as a goog and rode the porcelain scooter and did a technicolour yawn.
    soon I was very drunk and got sick (wont go into detail )
    Then I went to my swag and woke up feeling crook and had to chuck a sicky my self, all because of that cane toad.
    then I went to bed and woke up feeling hungover and had to call in sick myself, all because of this stupid person from queensland

    Btw this is purely fictional and I picked queensland because there are some nice slang words for them... could have picked tassie (tasmania) too.

    Well said, it is basically an expresso with a dash of milk/cream.

    If we're back on coffee I also like a nice liqueur coffee after tea, if we're eating out. Haven't worked my way through all of them yet but i've tried and liked: Irish whiskey, Tia Maria, Amaretto, Drambuie, Brandy (of some description).

    I'm watching the British round of the MotoGP this weekend at Castle Donnington, anyone here like it? I'm camping over, the campsite forbids me to take a milk churn though which is a bit restrictive!

    Oh and while we're on motorsport is it true that you Americans have no idea what Rallying is about? Someone once told me that Yanks didn't realise the Colin McRae World Rally game was based on a) a real driver and b) a real sport. True or false?

    On Liqueur: I'd prefer a good Islay Single Malt, thank you.

    On the MotoGP: Okay, but I'm more of a car guy (duh!).

    On the WRC & the like: Very cool stuff! Only dedicated Speed TV viewers get much of a taste of it here in the States. Those guys are nuts (and very talented)! It takes me many laps to get a turn right; those guys going flying through the first time (maybe not optimally, but damn fast).

    Hey clulup. I hear from someone we both know here that you have a peculiarly good taste for music. You should be getting an email from her with a song by David Broza, my most favorite Israeli singer (and excellent guitar player!) Let me know what you think about the song... (I tried uploading the song right here but it is too large of a file.)

    You drink unleaded coffee? Aren't you too young for that?

    Chickie-doodle: Since cats don't really read I am limited with book reviews. But have you heard about the new play "The Frogs"? It is now playing in NYC, and I was wondering if you normally go to Broadway plays.
