A typical flat white consists of a shot of espresso and micro-foamed steamed milk with a thin layer of velvety froth on top. It has a much stronger coffee flavor than caffe latte

In good cafes, skilled baristas will pour the micro-foamed steamed milk in a way that causes the crema to produce lovely designs on top of the froth.

Various sizes of Flat Whites are available and larger sizes generally have two shots of espresso for a total of 154 mg of caffeine.

Flat White caffeine can vary from cafe to cafe depending on quality/type of coffee used and precise measuring by the barista.
