Ahh,it is an Australian/New Zealand interpretation of espresso and steamed milk.
From what I've gathered,the Flat White has less milk than a latte and is distinguished from a cappuccino by the use of Microfoamed milk.
I've stepped into those coffee shops where they make art designs on top of your beverage with that type of velvet milk froth.
It has a thick texture,like gooey marshmallows,so I now understand why the Dane in Amsterdam may have sent the latte away.
I'm no barista but found this:
"The milk must not be overheated to the point that it is scalded, as at this point the enzymes denature and the texture no longer works"
Tense moments creating that very fine foam,heh.
Definitely puts a Starbucks latte to shame.
It is called "latte art" and quite difficult to achieve.
I am addicted!!!
