Types of Coffee

Flat White

A flat white is an espresso-based coffee drink. It is prepared by pouring microfoam (steamed milk with small, fine bubbles with a glossy or velvety consistency) into a single or double shot of espresso. It is somewhat similar to the caffè latte although smaller in volume and less microfoam, therefore having a higher proportion of coffee to milk, and milk that is more velvety in consistency – allowing the espresso to dominate the flavour, while being supported by the milk.

The earliest documented reference to the beverage dates back to Australia in the mid 1980s with appearance of the flat white at Moors Espresso Bar in Sydney. Alan Preston added the beverage to his permanent menu in 1985. Other documented references include cafes in Canberra putting up signs in 1985 saying “flat white only” during a seasonal problem with milk that prevented the normal milk froth forming.

However, the origins of the flat white are contentious with New Zealand also claiming its invention.The New Zealand claim originates in Auckland, New Zealand by Derek Townsend and Darrell Ahlers of Cafe DKD, as an alternative to the Italian latte, and a 2nd New Zealand claim originates from Wellington as a result of a “failed cappuccino” at Bar Bodega on Willis St in 1989.
