Piccolo Perfetto!

A new discovery. The Piccolo Latte. Just the thing for the latte lover who wants that little coffee burst after their meal but does not have room for a big glass of latte. This latte comes served in a cute little macchiato size glass but has equal quantities of milk so lacks the bitterness of the machiatto served with only a stain of milk. I experienced the delights of the Piccolo Latte at a funky Italian cafe/restaurant on a recent visit to Daylesford, Victoria. It was just the thing after a delightful Marguerita pizza made in true Italian style with thin crust, a tasty tomato sauce and just a smattering of ingredients to entice and not overwhelm the taste buds. This was complemented by a glass or two of a pleasing local sav. blanc! Accompanied by a small home made chocolate, the Piccolo Latte was small in size but big on satisfaction. Perfetto!


  1. You should seek out a layered piccolo latte... that is a real treat to behold at the hand of the right barista.

  2. Hi Stefan,

    Thanks for your recommendation. I will certainly be on the look out for the layered piccolo latte. It does sound like a vision to behold.
