It was a sad day when I said goodbye to coffee in Melbourne. I loved the cafes, the lattes and the flat whites. The creaminess of a good cup of coffee is something I’ve been trying to achieve at home with my Breville espresso maker, french press and milk frother.
While in Australia, I heard of an Australian coffee influence taking hold in New York City. We lived in NYC from 2000-2005 blind to any cafe other than those adorned with bright green letters S-T-A-R-B-U-C-K-S. Things change quickly though and look what I found (excuse the phone pics):
Woo-hoo, a flat white. And it was good, very good.
It was a bit of St. Kilda in New York City… minus the accents. Unfortunately, we live in the Jersey ‘burbs but it’s only a matter of time until Starbucks offers a flat white. Let’s hope it’s not offered in a venti size.
