What’s the difference between a latte and a flat white?

  • Can someone break down the difference between a Latte and a flat white? I seem to feel weird ordering a Latte as I don't really know the difference.

  • Flat White has an even mix of liquid milk and smooth velvet foam so it feels like drinking an espresso, only yummier. Cappuccino has stiff foam and feels like drinking bubbles with a bed of coffee hidden at the bottom. Latte is milky, has a little foam on the top and feels like drinking a milky coffee.
    I hope it might help!

  • Thanks for your great explanation.
