A flat white is essentially a latte but without the small head of froth at the top.

For all intents and purposes its the same, although some would disagree with me on this one, it all depends on how people make it. Some people would say the only difference is that a flat white is served in your typical ceramic coffee cup, while a lattle is served in an actual glass.

Others also say that a flat white should be stronger than a latte. It all falls on what the barista was taught, it is as simple as that.

LOL Haggis - Before the stovetop percolator I would make instant when our power went out!!!!!!! It was well worth it too!!!!!! LOL

I like my coffee with splenda and some heavy cream - I am trying to switch to no fat half and half but it's REALLY hard!!!!!!!!!!!!

I like my slightly cool with vanilla cream.

At Starbucks though.. my favorite is a double tall white mocha with caramal cream and whipped cream...

I'm trying to be "good" though so, I've been ordering plain short white mochas. Still good but not as good.

Pour very slowly over the back of a spoon resting on the side of the mug just above the level of the coffee.

What I like to do sometimes is froth my milk. I have a battery operated hand frother , I heat the milk (about 1/4 cup) in a mug in the microwave for about one minute. Then use the hand frother to froth it , set it aside while coffee is brewing. When coffee is ready, I pour down the side of the mug which the frothed milk is in. Sometimes I just drink coffee with half and half and sugar.

tiniest bit of sugar, not even 1/8 tsp, probably don't need it, and Coffee Mate coconut creme. On Saturdays though, it's Starbucks Vinti White Chocolate Mocha Frappacino. YUMMY!!
