Can those really be "macciato(ne)" with a long palatal affricate
"ch"?  In all the espresso places I've been to, it's always
"macchiato" with a long occlusive velar "k".  (I order it quite
frequently.)  The "macc(h)iatone" so described ends up sounding sort
of like cappuccino, since I think of macchiato as essentially
cappuccino without the (steamed) milk.  Maybe if the milk isn't
steamed it's more like a latte/cappuccino cross?  Any coffeeholics
out there who can help?
