Espresso

The Latte Macchiato is crafted with full and intensely bold shots of espresso.
In the Flat White, it’s short and sweet shots of ristretto espresso.


Milk

In the Flat White, it’s only steamed 2-3 seconds for a sweeter, velvety texture.


Pour

In the Flat White, milk goes last to evenly mix with the espresso for a balanced first sip.


Dots

The Latte Macchiato is marked with a brown dot of espresso, showing it was poured correctly.
The Flat White has a signature white dot, which is a sign of quality and proper grooming and aeration of the milk.


Taste
