Contest! Starbucks Flat White espresso
Vancouver coffee lovers, rejoice! Starbucks Canada is adding the new Flat White to their menu.
So, what is a Flat White exactly? The Starbucks Flat White is an espresso beverage made with two ristretto shots, combined with a thin layer of velvety steamed whole milk and finished with a latte art dot.
A ristretto shot delivers a sweeter, more intense coffee flavour. Starbucks baristas steam milk into creamy micro-foam and carefully free pour to allow the espresso to rise to the top of the beverage for a bold coffee flavour with a sweeter finish.
Since originating in Australia in the 1980s, the Flat White became a coffeehouse staple in the UK and is now a budding favourite among coffee aficionados in Canada. Starbucks customers in Australia have enjoyed the beverage in stores since 2009, and those in the UK since 2010. The Starbucks Flat White joins the core menu line-up of espresso beverages like Caffé Americano, Caffé Latte, Cappuccino, Doppio Espresso and Espresso Macchiato.
We are giving away a $25 Starbucks gift card so you can try the new Flat White espresso.
