The Flavor of a Caramel Cloud Macchiato
You can identify a good coffee when its flavor profile reminds you of roasted malt, chocolate, or brown sugar; its flavor should be acidic but not too bitter, as this is evidence that the bean has been over-roasted. An over-roasted bean destroys all the coffee’s natural qualities, which constitute its pleasant aroma and flavor.
You can only achieve a delicious Macchiato with a coffee whose aroma is intense, its acidity is pleasant, and its bitterness is tolerable.
