The Guardian Online Cites Our Flat White Guidelines

Wow! Can you believe that Espresso Coffee Snobs got a mention in the UK's Guardian newspaper?!

This post about making a "flat-white", which is a popular espresso-based coffee drink from Australia/NZ, was linked to in this article in the Guardian newspaper online yesterday. I only found out about it because I just noticed the traffic to my blog had suddenly taken a big jump.

The link to my Espresso Coffee Snobs post is in the article where the writer says "But it’s actually a little more complicated and pretentious than that."

True flat whites look like this
I guess I'm going to have to go to Starbucks to see how they do with their flat whites, but I know already that it really can't be a true flat white if you can get it tall, vente, or grande. As any of my devoted coffee snob devotees will tell you, one of the key things about a flat white is that the espresso is not to be overwhelmed by milk. If you do want to try one at Starbucks just to see, then I recommend you get a "tall" (small), but even that is going to have too much milk in it. In my opinion, Starbucks is just trying to ride the flat white wave that is encircling the globe.

Update: For a picture and details of my favorite flat-white I had on my trip to New Zealand in February 2017, check my post: My Favorite Flat-White.
