The New Zealand Herald reported that the flat white is a Kiwi favourite. My favourite is Cappuccino though at times I could have a Mochaccino or a Chai Latte. I only go for regular size.
When talking (or writing) about ‘regular size’ I came across this interesting article below.
Coffee shops should stop offering drinks in “regular” size because nobody understands what it means, language campaigners have said.
The Plain English Campaign – which battles against the use of gobbledegook – says cafes should stop offering ”regular” coffees but merely ask customers if they want ”small, medium or large”
The Herald carried out an unscientific survey across central Auckland yesterday to gauge cafe prices for a large flat white. Prices ranged from $3.70 to $6.
I agreed with Coffee expert Tom Handiside, a manager at Italian espresso machine manufacturer La Marzocco, who said bigger was not necessarily better. A good flat white shouldn’t be more than 200ml, he said.
“The best flat whites come in smaller cups and that’s because the coffee and milk blends nicely in a smaller serve.”
How much would you pay for your morning fix?
Do you go for a small, regular (medium) or large?
