Flat White

Flat White made with Nespresso Compatible Pod

The Aussie or New Zealand invention (depending on who you speak to) is a staple in all Australian Cafés. If you are after a Flat White you need to know how to get 'micro foam'. This is done by texturing the milk and swirling it with the steaming wand. The Aerocino frother does this with the none whisk insert. Due to the delicate nature of 'micro foam' you shouldn't overheat the milk.  

Preparation:

  1. Prepare your coffee pod of choice ( 1 x short shot - 40ml) in a coffee cup
  2. Use the Nespresso machine steam nozzle or the Aeroccino milk frother to froth 120-150ml of milk. Be sure to texture the milk and not get it too hot.
  3. Swirl the milk to prevent it from seperating and add the milk to the cup
  4. Now the milk should make the coffee sweet enough, however if you are a sweet tooth you can add sugar to taste.

Ingredients:

  • 1 x Podista coffee pod
  • approx 150ml of cold milk

Our recommended Podista Intensities: Supremo #10 or Intenso #12
