How to Make Australian
Flat White Coffee?

Flat white coffee is particularly popular in Australia. Flat white is a phrase that originated in Australia. It is similar to the expressions "short black" (single shot of espresso) and "long black" (double shot of espresso with hot water). The most common coffee choices in Australia are latte and flat white. 

It is an Australian coffee concoction that consists of a single shot of espresso, followed by a steaming pour of milk and a thin coating of froth on top. This espresso beverage is served in a cup and is also referred to as a 'espresso' with milk.

A distinctly Australian coffee, somewhat stronger than a latte, served with steamed milk, a tradition in the country. It is an espresso-based coffee beverage that is served with steamed milk and microfoam on the side, along with other ingredients.

This microfoam is composed of steamed milk that has been lightly infused with air throughout the process. As a result, the milk is velvety and textured, with small air bubbles throughout.

While lattes and mochas are both common in Australia, a flat white known as a white coffee in Australia is typically served in a ceramic mug of 200 ml as a latte glass. Some will pour the latte with an additional layer of foam while others will serve a flat white with extra froth.

For the most part, Australian coffee roasts are lighter, smoother, and sweeter in taste than American ones. This love for high-quality espresso has increased during the past five years.
