The macchiato with chocolate
The name chociatto is a take from the macchiato which means ‘stained’. In this case, it refers to the milk being stained with chocolate rather than coffee. The chocciato can be directly related to the latte macchiato in its preparation and look. First steamed or textured milk is prepared in a glass and then followed by a chocolate shot. The glass allows the consumer to see the chocolate stain the milk as it is being poured.
