addaword.gifdefinition of flat white

noun
a type of coffee consisting of one or two shots of espresso with foamed milk mixed in and on top. Very similar to a traditional Italian cappuccino, but the frothed milk (microfoam) is creamy rather than foamy
“A flat white is just a cappuccino with less froth isn’t it?” I overheard a slightly confused Hungarian cafe owner say to a Kiwi customer.
