Be amazed by the many options opened up by the latte macchiato spoons from Villeroy & Boch. So many layers of usefulness. Read more...
If you order a latte macchiato from an Italian barista, he will serve you a glass or cup containing a light-brown espresso under a rich cover of froth. The only difference between this and a cappuccino is the ratio of coffee to milk – cappuccino contains a lot more espresso. North of the Alps, a latte macchiato – which translates as “stained milk” – is expected to have at least three separate layers of milk, coffee and froth. We say at least because a shot of caramel is often also added to the glass. That is when you need a latte macchiato spoon, to stir up the syrup from the bottom. Because lattes are now being drunk more and more at home too, many of Villeroy & Boch's cutlery collections now include latte macchiato spoons.
It is the long handle that makes a latte macchiato spoon stand out from other spoons. While the spoon part itself is no larger than an ordinary coffee spoon, so that it has space to stir in any glass, the handle of the spoon is often twenty cm long, reaching all the way to the bottom of the glass. That way, you do not have to start your coffee break with pure milk and wait for the espresso like a bitter surprise in the last mouthful. But because the handle is also very slim, the delicious milk froth stays all but intact as you mix the other components together. Incidentally, the latte macchiato spoons from Villeroy & Boch not only match the other utensils in each collection, but also look great teamed with our latte macchiato glasses.
Latte macchiato spoons from Villeroy & Boch are always produced using top-quality stainless steel. This has absolutely no taste and does not lose its shine even after many trips through the dishwasher. Although their slim shape makes the latte macchiato spoons appear light or even fragile, the stainless steel makes them very robust and dimensionally stable. The careful treatment of the metal makes the surfaces of the handles and spoon sections especially fine, giving them an elegant look that perfectly matches our latte macchiato glasses. The ergonomic design ensures that the spoons sit comfortably in the hand and are well balanced.
You will enjoy a spoon set from Villeroy & Boch long after your coffee cup is empty. The long handle of the latte macchiato spoons makes them real all-rounders, as they are also the ideal length for ice cream sundaes and long drink glasses. Why not give yourself or your guests a treat with a frozen latte, ideally enjoyed with a latte macchiato spoon from Villeroy & Boch. Fruity cocktails such as a sparkling mix of fresh peaches and champagne or a creamy strawberry treat need to be stirred again and again to stop any pulp collecting at the bottom. A long drink spoon in the glass is the perfect way to do this, and is an attractive decoration, too.
