Starbucks maple macchiato

December 21 2005

I'm not a huge Starbucks guy, but when I'm traveling, I do often find myself in queue for a caramel macchiato.  Here in Cambridge, though, the menu board also features a maple macchiato (and latte).  I tried it yesterday, and it was OK but not a repeater IMHO.  So why the blog?  Well, I learned yesterday that the maple macchiato is a New England (and, accoring to some blogs, Canadian) thing only.  A query to a barista at a Chicago Starbucks yesterday resulted in rolled eyes and a "we have some maple cookies" response.  It's not even mentioned anywhere on  The first bunch of google hits are bloggers who have tried the drink.  Strange marketing.
