For all you coffee connoisseurs who haven’t yet heard of the latest drink du jour, let us introduce the flat white. It originated in Sydney, Australia and has been around for awhile. Londoners caught wind of it a few years ago and have actual “flat white” coffee bars and a site to find the best ones around. Recently the drink landed state side and has become all the rage in NY. It’s really just a single or double shot of espresso topped with milk that’s been steamed into velvety, wet foam, served in a cappuccino cup sans the froth. Sounds yummy to us. The next time you’re in your local coffee house, order it and see if they know what’s up.
