Starbuck’s Iced Caramel Macchiato! Popular Copycat Clone Recipes & Pricing

Rich Starbucks espresso and the buttery taste of creamy caramel & cold velvety milk…Mmmm, what could be better? I only use Starbucks original whole bean espresso ground into a fine powder and brew it up in my espresso machine. A good quality Italian powder works as well. Using the double shot holder on my espresso machine I brew a double shot of espresso…Hmmm, let’s move on (1 shot is 1 oz- this recipe calls for 2 full ounces of Starbucks espresso). This brew can also be tossed in your blender for the “Blended” version. Right! If you want a hot beverage just use steamed milk and omit the ice.

So, here you have 3 versions of the luscious, popular  java infusions!
