Why Are Flat White Coffee Small?

In cappuccinos, the most noticeable difference is the overall size, but it is also becoming more common to have the foam thickness reduced... The coffee flavor in the liquid beverage beneath the foam can be quite strong. 

Because the flat white has a much smaller proportion of espresso to milk, the flavor of the espresso is much more prominent in the overall coffee experience.

When two shots are used, it has the potential to be more caffeinated than a regular coffee, depending on how strong it is brewed. In a flat white, the flavor and intensity of espresso are combined with the rich mouthfeel of a dairy-based beverage to produce a deliciously satisfying beverage.

While the exact cup size and coffee-to-milk ratio may vary, a flat white is generally smaller than a latte and contains more espresso.

If you enjoy the nuanced flavors of specialty coffee but prefer something that is not dairy-based, a flat white may be a better choice than a latte in some cases. Because it contains less milk than a cappuccino, a flat white will allow you to get a better sense of the sensory profile of the beans. 

A flat white is a stronger coffee-flavored beverage than a regular coffee. Due to the use of two shots, a flat white combines the intense flavor of espresso with the rich mouthfeel of a dairy-based beverage it has the potential to be stronger than a latte.
