A great cup of coffee will make your day brighter if you’re like me. It’s why I love white flat coffee so much that I make it a habit to have it every day. I enjoy trying new things with my coffee. I’m always excited to try out new coffee shops or cafes.
However, Flat White Espresso from Starbucks is a newer version of the classic.
What is a White Flat Coffee?
This Flat Coffee is made with espresso and steamed milk. This is a great choice for those who like cream, but still want the strong kick of really strong coffee.
Flat coffee whites are usually made with two shots of espresso and milk that’s been steamed. A layer of micro-foam is added to the top.
Making a flat white is about the technique. The flavor and texture of a flat white are determined by the technique, not the beans or the milk.
Where it All Started
It is still a controversial topic. However, it seems that the Outback (Australia), and the native-land Maori (New Zealand) are the most likely places.
It is known that the drink was first invented in the 1980s. It has become a popular beverage in specialty coffee shops across the world over the years.
People in the area started to drink espressos instead of regular coffee. They began to search for something other than the cappuccino that was made with foamy milk that formed peaks.
They wanted the coffee “flat”, meaning without any foam. They experimented with the beverage and decided to add a layer of microfoam to the top to make it stand out from the cappuccino.
Starbucks began offering flat whites in place of the popular latte a few years back. Since then, it has been part of the mainstream.
What is the Difference between Flat coffee White and Latte?
A latte is different from a flat white because it has a higher ratio of espresso to milk. Both drinks have a similar texture to milk, but a flat white is slightly smoother because it has more milk. Flat coffee whites are usually served in smaller cups than lattes. Starbucks Flat White is only available in Tall. However, you can get Grande or Venti lattes.
What is the difference between a flat white and a latte?
Flat Whites are a concentrated coffee that has less milk. They also have a stronger flavor. Flat Whites contain more caffeine because they are made with two cups of coffee.
