You can see, taste and feel the personal touch of a professional barista in a flat white, an espresso based coffee originating from Australia.
How to make a perfect flat white
- Pull a double espresso into a cup or glass.
- Steam the milk to 55–62 °C. Learn how the right temperature feels in your hand when holding the pitcher or use a thermometer to take the temperature of the milk or use a thermometer to take the temperature of the milk.
- To make the milk velvety and smooth and disperse any bubbles, give the pitcher a thump on the counter and swirl the milk lightly around the pitcher.
- Make a latte art pattern on the surface of the flat white.
