It is unclear whether the term “flat white” was coined in Australia or New Zealand, but we do know the drink is basically a cappuccino without the foam.
The flat white became popular in the United States after Starbucks added it to their menu. The flat white is very similar to a cappuccino but has no foam at all.
You might order a flat white when you want an espresso drink that is a bit stronger than a latte but without as much foam as a cappuccino.
If you are attempting to make a flat white the way Starbucks does, use 12 ounces of milk instead of 4 ounces and only 1 ounce of espresso.
