Starbucks has introduced a Hazelnut Macchiato
in its stores. The new beverage will be added to its permanent menu of espresso beverages, which also includes the Caramel Macchiato. Starbucks says the espresso shorts used in the drink are pulled between 18 and 23 seconds and added to the drink within 10 seconds. The drink is described as "freshly steamed milk with vanilla syrup, marked with espresso and finished with hazelnut drizzle." The drink has 240 calories.
Cliff Burrows, president, Americas, Starbucks Coffee Company, said in a statement, "Starbucks baristas use the world's finest espresso to craft each beverage by hand, with unparalleled passion and expertise. No beverage better demonstrates this level of craftsmanship than our signature four-layered Macchiato, and we know customers will love this new member of our espresso beverage family."
