A Brew with a Storied Past

March 11th isn’t just any day in the coffee world – it’s the anniversary of the flat white’s official entry into the Oxford English Dictionary back in 2011. While its exact origins are a bit hazy, the flat white is thought to have waltzed onto cafe menus in Sydney and Auckland sometime in the 1980s.

The Essence of the Flat White

Picture this: a single shot of rich espresso, its dark intensity tamed by a gentle pour of steamed milk and just a whisper of delicate micro-foam. Traditionally enjoyed in a ceramic cup, it’s the perfect canvas for a barista’s artful touch. The flat white whispers elegance, a simpler pleasure than the frothier cappuccino or latte.

A Coffee for the Connoisseur

The flat white has become a haven for coffee purists. Its nuanced flavor profile rewards those who savor the unadulterated taste of perfectly brewed espresso balanced delicately by creamy milk.


The Rise of a Global Favorite

Like the morning sun, the popularity of the flat white has spread across oceans. No longer just a treasure of Australia and New Zealand, it has become a beloved menu staple in countless countries. Coffee cultures evolve, and the flat white has seamlessly embraced plant-based milks like oat, adding another dimension to this delightful drink.

Google says it best: “No matter the origins, coffee lovers worldwide agree it’s a favourite morning or arvo (afternoon) pick-me-up!”
