A "flat white" is an espresso drink
made with a shot of espresso and two shots of steamed milk
. It takes a little bit of skill tom prepare, but once you've mastered it, it's easy to make flat white espresso drinks again and again.
Prep Time: 3 minutes

Yield: One serving
- Pull one shot espresso.
- While pulling the shot, froth the milk. As the milk froths, use a spoon to fold the microbubbles from the top of the steaming pitcher to the bottom of the steaming pitcher. This will create a smoother, more velvety texture for your drink.
- Combine the two ingredients. (Latte art optional.) Your flat white should have about 1/4 inch steamed milk on top.
