A Cappuccino and a Macchiato are two different types of espresso-based coffee drinks. A Cappuccino is made with equal parts espresso, steamed milk, and frothy milk foam, while a Macchiato is made with a single shot of espresso and a dollop of frothed milk on top. The Macchiato has a stronger coffee taste than the Cappuccino, as the steamed milk in the Cappuccino helps to balance out the flavor of the espresso. The Macchiato is also typically served in a smaller cup than the Cappuccino. The Macchiato may also be made with a double shot of espresso, while a Cappuccino usually has a single shot.
