What Coffee is Used in Starbucks Caramel Macchiato?
Starbucks makes the Caramel Macchiato with espresso, vanilla syrup, steamed milk, and caramel sauce.
While it is an express-based beverage in Starbucks, when I make it at home I just use my normal coffee. It is VERY important to make sure you are using a GOOD coffee, the bland stuff will not give you the results that you are dreaming of.

How to Froth Milk in a Mason Jar
Mason Jar Foamy Milk is really easy to make. If you do not have a milk frother then you can make frothy milk in a mason jar using the microwave.
Shake 2% milk in a mason jar until it is foamy than remove the lid, and microwave for a 30 seconds.
Caramel Macchiato Ingredients
You will need coffee. For me I stick with whatever ground coffee or Kcups I have on hand (I only buy good coffee). Personally I like to use Starbucks Coffee or a Starbucks Coffee Kcup when making this at home because I do love their coffee.
You are going to need whipped cream as well, personally I like using homemade whipped cream but you can opt for store bought.
Use a good Caramel Flavor syrup and cinnamon flavored syrup. I personally like Torani Syrups.
Foamy milk. I know not everyone has a milk frother, so if you do not have no worries. You can still make this amazing coffee recipe. All you have to do is use a mason jar to heat up the milk and then shake it really well. This will give you hot foamy milk, which you need for making a macchiato.
