Espresso Coffee Menu: Flat white

 In Articles, Introduction to Espresso

A flat white is a double espresso extracted into a standard cappuccino cup finished with hot milk, the foam held back with a spoon.

Step One:

Remove the single handle from the group head and knock out the spent coffee cake into the knockbox.

Step Two:

Place the empty handle under the grinder/doser and make one complete pull – no more, no less.

Step Three:

Tamp the coffee. Hold the group handle in your weaker hand, tamp with your writing hand. As you tamp give the handle a good hard twist left to right to ensure a solid pack.

Step Four:

Wipe the excess grounds from the rim of the filter.

Step Five:

Refit the handle to the group head and brew the espresso into a standard cup.

Step Six:

While the espresso is brewing, begin foaming the milk following the “How to foam and steam milk“ instructions.

Step Seven:

Wipe the steam wand!

Step Eight:

Using a spoon to hold back the foamed milk, let only the steamed milk pour into the cup.
