Flat White going to be Starbuck’s new drink.
Is it something similar to a Chestnut Praline latte? Or the infamous Pumpkin Spiced Latte? Nope, we’re not talking about sugar and carbs here — we’re talking about straight up shots of espresso and steamed milk.
Yes, Starbucks for once, is going back to its roots and adding a “real” coffee drink to its menu. It’s going to be part of their core menu, and will not be a limited addition. The drink will feature two shots of espresso and lots of steamed milk. Think of it as something between a latte and a cappuccino.
Starbucks has been under a lot of scrutiny lately for producing drinks that are purely made of sugar. We have been wondering why the “coffee shop” is roaming into the desserts category, with some of their drinks taking up as much as 800 calories. Maybe they finally realize that their main focus was, and should have always been, pure coffee. With all the backlash, it seems like they are finally back on board with creating frothy, foamy cups of pure caffeine.
What exactly is the Flat White?
According to Starbucks, the Flat White was popularized in the early 1980s in Sydney Australia, but others claim it’s been done as early at the 1970’s in Melbourne. “The coffee coinnesseuirs choice originally from Antipodean roots combines Starbucks signature Espresso Roast and freshly steamed milk with microfoam, expertly handcrafted and served in our Flat White cup for a genuine Flat White experience.”
The Starbuck’s version of the Flat White will be made from two potent-and-full-of-caffeine ristretto espresso shots, and filled to the brim with whole milk steamed to a “micro foam”. It going to be suitable for latte art, as after you pour it, it leaves a steamed milk dot in the middle. We bet that everyone is going to be trying it out at least once, just for the latte art.
It is going to be available today, on January 6th, all across America.
What do you think of Starbucks going back to its roots in coffee? Will you be trying a cup of this Flat White?
