  • How to Make a Flat White

    February 05, 2021 1 min read

    At first blush, a flat white may seem very similar to latte, but there's an important distinction: the ratio of espresso to steamed milk. A flat white has a higher concentration of espresso and is therefore has a stronger coffee flavor. Here's how to create your own:

    1.) Steam 10 oz of whole milk.

    2.) Brew 2 oz of espresso (double shot)

    3.) Combine and enjoy!

    The flat white has an interesting origin. Unlike most coffee drinks that were created in Europe, the flat white comes to us from either Australia or New Zealand. Interestingly, there is contention about which country was the first to introduce this beverage to the world.

    There are also many takes on the flat white, depending on where you order. The variation mostly occurs in the amount of micro foam added. Some greatly reduce the amount of foam, bringing forth the strong flavor of the espresso. Others add more, in essence creating a latte.

    In truth, the nature of the flat white can be hard to pin down, owing to all the variations. Above we demonstrate the basic preparation, but anything in the ballpark of that espresso to steamed milk ratio can acceptably be called a flat white.

    Of course, to make a great flat white, you need to start with the best quality espresso. Try our Two Tails espresso blend, created specifically to brew the perfect espresso.
