Jordan Michelman and Zachary Carlsen are back for another installment of the Coffee Sprudgecast—a coffee podcast on the Sprudge Podcast Network. The hosts discuss one thing and one thing only: the rich, buttery history of the Starbucks Caramel Macchiato. Now in its 25th year of pleasing many and confusing even more, the Starbucks Caramel Macchiato has an interesting back story, a lot of misconceptions, and a place in coffee’s history. Stick around for a surprise at the end that shocked host Jordan Michelman to his core.
