A flat white is a coffee beverage made with espresso and steamed milk. It's a simple dairy beverage that has a strong coffee flavor. Made with a small amount of steamed milk and a thin layer of microfoam, it is delicious.
Using the espresso machine, make two double shots into a cup or glass.
Steam the milk until it reaches 55–62 degrees Celsius. Test the temperature of the milk by holding it in your hand and feeling how it feels. You can also use a thermometer to check the temperature of the milk if you prefer.
Give the pitcher a light thump on the counter and gently swirl the milk around the pitcher to make it velvety and smooth and to disperse any bubbles.
Create a latte art pattern on the flat white's surface with your fingers.
A flat white is typically smaller in size than a latte. However, this does not imply that a flat white is simply a smaller version of a latte.
The only thing that distinguishes a flat white from a latte is the manner in which the milk is prepared and poured. The majority of people are unaware of how important good milk is to a good cup of coffee.

OCM (OnCoffeeMakers.com) was started in 2007 with the first webpage about coffee machines. And for a number of years, we focused on helping people find their desired coffee machine (we still are helping folks with that! So, if you are looking for coffee machines for office or restaurants - check out the link).
In 2010, we started getting enquiries on restaurant marketing and we start to help food and beverage brands with their marketing. Below are campaigns and events that we have done over the years:
