technically, most of these would be double cappuccini, yeah?

I've tried a macchiatos, but I wasn't really all that "fond" of it. Don't get me wrong, I appreciate the espresso and the flavor, but it isn't really the same. Lol. I like a whole lot of foam, and the macchiatos we make just have a very thin layer on the top. So I guess my capps are like massive sized macchiatos, haha. I never thought of it like that!

But your version of a macchiato does seem close to my capp.

Nicole, do you ever drink latte macchiatos? I'm sure the definition of this one is even less agreed upon than the cappuccino, but the way I do them is:

2-3oz of dense steamed milk with several large spoon-fulls of microfoam on top in a small cup (something not too far from a demitasse, preferably glass), then pull a shot of espresso on top of the milk and foam. The espresso falls through the foam and initially rests on top of the more dense milk, so your first few sips are almost pure 'spro, followed by an increasingly milky experience. It's a really dynamic drink, and one of my favorites.

From your descriptions of what you like, I bet you would like it a lot.
