In recent years, flat whites have become increasingly popular among drinkers all over the world.
This coffee has a strong espresso flavor with a creamy mouthfeel from steamed milk. But, where did it come from, and what makes it unique?
Due to the flattened milk foam in this new concoction. The "flat white" was born.
It's a steamed milk espresso drink. It's a simple dairy beverage with a strong coffee flavor, made with steamed milk and a thin layer of microfoam.
While a regular skim latte is only 60 calories, a flat white is 120 calories, 10 grams of sugar, and 6 grams of fat.
A flat white is best served in a 160-165ml tulip cup, rather than the larger glass used for lattes and cappuccinos.
It has enough aeration to allow for latte art, but not so much that it becomes frothy. In my previous shop, I served flat whites in 5 oz cups and lattes in 8 oz cups. Double shots were used for both. I believe a flat white larger than 6 oz is a latte.”
