Expanding my snobbery

I just had a caramel macchiato.  I am not sure how I feel about this.  It was nice, but maybe a bit too sweet and caramelly and I am not sure what a macchiato is or how one should taste, so maybe that is the problem.

I need a real coffee snob to come to Texas and show me the ropes.

Any volunteers?

No, not going to do that.  It was a one time snobbish indulgence.

* laughing *  Do you have any idea how many caramel macchiato addicts said the same thing?

I can stop any time I wanna, I just don't wanna.

And at least I am not like @smudge, sitting around in my PJ's surrounded by moon pies and choco wheels and such.

I haven't had coffee in a long time.  When I do, it's just coffee.  Full strength, not that decaf stuff.  No sugar.  No milk.  Definitely no caramel.   And I have no idea what macchiato is, so it probably is bad for you, none of that either.

I normally drink my coffee black, or with a bit of half and half or low fat milk.   I splurged today.  I will not do that again.

A true snob knows that's not coffee.  It's a splurge drink for my mother.

Wasn't there a kids' show out there called 'Where in the World is Caramel Macchiato?"

I think Caramel had a brother named Ralph, too:

Macchiato is just foam.

Caramel Macchaito is really just 'coffee' for people who do not like coffee. 

What else do you need to know?

It’s milk foam with espresso. 

It's kind of sad that you know this. 

Then again...  you lived (now you are a bit farther away, but obviously not far enough) near the epicenter of the Starbucks universe. 

OMG..  I just realized you must be the coffee snob for the forum.  :o

Actually that would have been King Termite if he would have joined us. People who understand what a candy bar in a cup is are not exactly coffee snobs. King termite even drank that coffee that was made from coffee beans pooped out of a monkey or some such.

I prefer my coffee black, unless it tastes bitter. I have had caramel machiattos a few times, usually as a dessert .

I have had that.  My daughter bought me some in Southeast Asia a couple years ago.  And it was the legit stuff, not the caged and force fed stuff

Snob..., nope.  I mean I have been known to drink lots of Tim Horton's and McDonald's coffee, so I just drink it, but I am not fussy
