Hot flat and crowded

Having recently ventured into the nonfiction category more and more, and having been so pleased with Naomi Klein, Noam Chomsky, and Bob Woodward, I took a recommendation and bought this hefty little bugger. Like I mentioned, if this was fiction, it would get one star—but as a nonfiction book, at least the information is good. A couple of quick examples:

Hot flat and crowded

How much coffee is there in your coffee? We can hold the preparation of the espresso as a constant across drinks. You can have a double shot or a single shot in a flat white or in a latte.

But on average, the coffee is not really what makes a Flat White different to a latte or cappuccino. If a barista has been un-trained or over-trained then they may think that size is the only difference between a flat white and a latte.

I like asking those baristas what the difference is between a cappuccino vs a latte because they have to fall back on the real differences beyond just size.

Milk is Hot flat and crowded hidden ingredient in a modern coffee. Most people forget how important good milk is to a good coffee. When milk is frothed with a steam wand there are three layers that form: The key to a Flat White vs a Latte is the way the milk is poured.

A good barista will swirl the steamed milk around to fold the froth back into the liquid and create a seamless pitcher of velvet microfoam. Some might tap the pitcher on the counter to pop the worst of the big bubbles on top as part of folding the milk. A good test of a flat white Crema is the orange caramelised coffee that floats to the top of an espresso shot.

One of the main ways of telling if you have been served a good flat white is how much of the milk has merged seamlessly with the crema to form an even dusky orange swirl.

This coloration of the milk is also the starting point of good latte art. A mid-level barista is more likely to do it like this: Spoon the stiff froth into the cup and then top up with a pour from the jug. Pour the liquid milk from the jug with a spoon to hold back the froth and then top off with a dollop of froth.

Like any human endeavour, there is a bell curve to the skills of baristas. The most ignorant of baristas will make a flat white, latte or a cappuccino all the same. Ironically, some very high end baristas have the same attitude because they take so much care with frothing, folding and pouring their milk that every coffee is made like a perfect flat white with an even mix of liquid, microfoam and froth.

In terms of mood and mouthfeel: Flat White has an even mix of liquid milk and smooth velvet foam so it feels like drinking an espresso, only yummier. Cappuccino has stiff foam and feels like drinking bubbles with a bed of coffee hidden at the bottom. Latte is milky, has a little foam on the top and feels like drinking a milky coffee.He was having drinks with his buddies on the back porch and must have forgot the windows were slightly cracked Ashley was inside nursing their newborn daughter as those hateful words rattled her brain and pierced through her heart.
