Morning Serenade Macchiato


  • 1 double shot of espresso using Skeleton Brew’s “Dawn’s Requiem” blonde roast
  • 1/2 cup steamed milk
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla syrup
  • A pinch of ground cinnamon
  • A sprinkle of raw sugar crystals (for garnish)
  • A small twist of lemon zest (for garnish)


Step 1: The Dawn’s Awakening

Begin your day with a double shot of espresso using the “Dawn’s Requiem” blonde roast. This light, sweet blend is the perfect base for a morning beverage, offering a symphony of flavors to awaken your senses.

Step 2: The Vanilla Harmony

In a small cup, mix the vanilla syrup with the freshly brewed espresso. The vanilla’s sweetness complements the light, nuanced flavors of the “Dawn’s Requiem,” creating a harmonious blend.

Step 3: The Milky Cloud

Steam your milk until it’s hot and has a light, creamy froth. Gently pour the steamed milk into the cup with the espresso and vanilla mixture, allowing the milk to create a cloud-like layer on top of the coffee.

Step 4: The Cinnamon Whisper

Dust the top of the steamed milk with a pinch of ground cinnamon. This adds a subtle spice that enhances the espresso’s natural flavors and provides a warm, aromatic experience.

Step 5: The Sugar Symphony

Sprinkle a few raw sugar crystals on top. Their slight crunch and natural sweetness add a delightful texture and taste, complementing the overall flavor profile of the beverage.

Step 6: The Lemon Zest Finale

Garnish with a small twist of lemon zest. The zest’s bright, citrusy notes offer a refreshing contrast to the sweet and creamy elements of the macchiato, rounding out the morning serenade experience.

Step 7: Savor the Serenade

Enjoy your Morning Serenade Macchiato as the perfect start to your day. Each sip should be a celebration of the new day, a moment to savor the sweet, harmonious flavors of “Dawn’s Requiem,” and a tribute to the art of fine coffee.
