Ingredients for 1 serving

For a 350ml/11.8oz glass of cocoa latte macchiato (sugar-free), you’ll need:

• 1 espresso *

• 1 tablespoon of bitter cocoa

• 30 cl/10ozof milk or plant based milk


For this recipe we suggest you use a washed coffee of the Arabica variety with an intense and balanced flavor, with hints of fruit and a pleasant acidic aftertaste to obtain a combination of flavors with bitter cocoa

Espresso * is made with a coffee machine in De’Longhi beans. Here are the settings we recommend:

• Grinding: 2.5

The milk foam is prepared with the Latte Crema system integrated into De’Longhi bean coffee machines. Here are the settings we recommend for a 350ml glass:
