  • Melaccino???

    Has anyone heard of the new coffee called Melaccino. I hear its just a cappuccino with a marsh mellow in it? Somebody said was invented in Melbourne 6 months ago.

    Mela means apple in Italian.

    Melaccino is something that is very sweet - imagine concentrated apple juice or a sticky, fortified wine.

    I guess if someone has christened a cap with marshmallow as a melaccino, its probably better than calling it a malcinno, mal meaning ill/sick. Come to think of it...

      When I used to work for the the coffee club we served a mello-cino, guess what it was? I think that was around 3 or 4 years ago, and as the coffee club are mainly based up north, Id imagine it originated somewhere up there.

      Whod want to destroy a perfectly good cappuccino like that anyway?

        My guess is its the same dark forces of evil within the universe that dreamt up the Frappe-cino, Choco-cino and Macadamia nut and Maple-freakin-syrup-cino* etc in their attempts to legitimise coffee-based "confectionery" as legit coffee products  >

          yeh i agree with psaigh, i used to work at coffee club in sydney about 18 months ago and we served a mello-chino, it was a mugaccino with a marshmellow in it!!!! surprisingly not very popular?????
          if memory serves me correctly we also had a honey bunny or something along those lines, which was an espresso shot, in a latte glass, topped with cinnamon, followed by milk and then a swirl of honey on top.

            Are you sure it isnt a joke based on the problem milk with the mellamine in it?

              Personally, I would doubt it. Reports of the melamine contamination didnt break really until after the Olympics were over, despite later reports that it had been going on for several weeks before the games started. Seeing as the thread was started before all of that ....
