The Inside Story on the Flat White Coffee Craze

Flat White Coffee Craze In America by CoffeeForLess

Have you overheard more people ordering a flat white at your local coffee bar lately? Are you wondering what a flat white coffee even is, and whether you should get one? Maybe you’ve already tried one and you’re still trying to figure out what all the fuss is about.

 

def: A flat white is a coffee beverage that originated around the 1970s-1980s in Australia and later in New Zealand. It is prepared by pouring microfoam over a single or double shot of espresso

 

For anyone pondering “What is a flat white?” or “What’s the inside story on the flat white coffee craze?” we’re going to fill you in on the scoop.

So Where Did It Come From?

New Zealanders and Australians have been drinking flat whites for years. The espresso drink is said to be the creation of Derek Townsend, a New Zealand café owner who is reportedly a supreme master at steaming large quantities of milk at a time, grinding the perfect size of coffee particle, and putting out more than a thousand flat white coffees in an hour.

We’re not sure how much of this rings true, but it is nearly common knowledge that the flat white is a long-time Kiwi coffee concept. It’s also a drink that is just now making its way to becoming an American craze.

What Is a Flat White?

The drink is made with espresso and milk, just like a latte or a cappuccino. “What’s the difference?” you may ask and “Why are people going crazy over it?” Well, it is kind of like a latte and a bit like a cappuccino. Maybe you could just call it a latte-ccino, but flat white coffee sounds so much more intriguing, doesn’t it?

A flat white coffee has less foam than a latte, and less volume, too. It’s small like a cappuccino, but again, it has less foam. And, the foam on it is called “microfoam.” It’s velvety and thick, unlike the foam on a cappuccino. To make a one, you pull from the bottom of the milk-frothing pitcher, where the liquid is richer in texture.

The flat white served is served in a ceramic vessel, whereas a latte usually comes in glass. The drink is basically just creamy milk over the same amount of espresso, which is typically a double shot.

Why the Current Craze?

So does the flat white coffee taste that much better than a latte or espresso? Is there a reason why coffee lovers around the country are jumping on this coffee bandwagon (other than it’s a new bandwagon to jump on)? Should we be that excited to finally have something New Zealanders and Australians have for decades thought of as just another coffee drink?

The flat white is good – in face, it’s really good. But just how good it is depends on what your idea of good coffee tastes like. Some people like a straight-up espresso. Others find lattes lovely. Still, more can’t wait to catapult their day with a good-old cappuccino.

The inside story on this coffee craze is that flat whites are just another fabulous way to enjoy coffee – a beverage that is so agreeable because it manages to give us exactly what we want, exactly when we want it.

Coffee Movie Scenes We Love

Office-space-Lumbergh-nightmare

If movies were made about our morning routines, then coffee would likely win an award for best supporting actor, or at least be a major plot point. And while we may never become Hollywood A-listers, our favorite wake-up beverage is no stranger to the silver screen. Here are some of our favorite coffee movie scenes from a few films you might have seen and loved.

Office Space – Lumbergh Nightmare

When disgruntled programmer Peter Gibbons learns that his love interest (played by Jennifer Aniston) once had a romantic relationship with his insufferable boss, Hal Lumbergh, he has a terrible nightmare of a mini-coffee movie featuring the two of them doing the deed as Lumbergh casually sips from his ever-present Initech coffee cup.

Glengarry Glen Ross – Coffee Is for Closers

alec-baldwin-glengarry-glen-ross“Put that coffee down! Coffee’s for closers only,” begins Alec Baldwin in his scenery-chewing scene from the David Mamet’s cult classic Glengarry Glen Ross. The diatribe that follows is far too salty to be repeated here, but if you’ve never seen the movie, Baldwin’s character leaves no room for doubt about whom coffee is for.

The Usual Suspects – The Coffee Drop

For much of the film, we’re led to believe that Roger “Verbal” Kint is just a patsy – a crippled small-potatoes con-man who got in over his head. During his interrogation, he weaves a tail about the mysterious and murderous Mafioso named Keyser Soze. By the time agent Dave Kujan realizes that Kint was the mastermind behind the whole operation, it’s too late; the real Keyser Soze has gotten into a car and disappeared. He drops his coffee cup on the floor and it shatters in slow motion, just as all of the pieces of the mystery come together.

Mulholland Drive – Bad Coffee

In David Lynch’s cryptic film Mulholland Drive, fictitious Hollywood director Adam Kesher has his film taken over by mobsters. In a meeting with the mob, he is informed that: A. he is going to cast Camilla Rhodes in his film, or else, and B. his taste in espresso is sub-par, to say the least.

L.A. Story – The Coffee Order

Don’t ever try to order a “half double decaffeinated half-caff with a twist of lemon” from your local barista. It may have worked for Steve Martin in L.A. Story, but there’s really no such thing. This is one coffee movie scene you might want to forget!

Heat – The Legendary Tete-a-tete

Pacino. De Niro. Coffee. Three legends have a sit-down. It’s a tense moment: the hard-boiled police lieutenant and the criminal mastermind… the hunter and the hunted, though it’s hard to tell which is which. Both make their intentions quite plainly known. The coffee in the movie doesn’t say much, but you can tell it has the situation under control.

Coffee Movies Might Be Overstating It

Okay, so these are all “famous” movie scenes where coffee the beverage features heavily. They’re not really Coffee Movies, but from where we’re standing, the films would not have been the same without our favorite beverage!

Why a Coffee Date Makes the Perfect First Date

A Coffee Date Is The Perfect First Date by CoffeeForLess

Do you want to grab a coffee sometime?” has become the opening line of choice for many hopeful people who are putting themselves out there in the dating world. And it’s often a preferred first-date strategy for those on the receiving end of a proposal.

So why exactly does a coffee date make so much sense for the perfect first date? Why coffee instead of dinner – or drinks, hooking up over a workout, or attending events together? It turns out that there are actually quite a few reasons why you might want to do what other first-daters are doing, and embrace the casual coffee outing for a first-time meet up.

You Find a Little About Someone’s Character Over Coffee

When you meet up for a coffee date, you get to see how a person acts in a normal, real-life scenario. You get to see how patient your date is when he or she has to wait in line, and how they behave in public around strangers.

You’ll notice manners (does he or she say “please” and “thank you” to the barista?) and you’ll find out how easy going (or not) he or she is, as your date orders a drink. And of course, that order they place during the coffee date may also come with a long and customized list of ways to froth the milk, requests to heat a drink to an ideal temperature, or an opportunity to see how they handle an incorrect order, etc.).

Coffee Is Definitely Cheap

You don’t have to be cheap on a first date. It is best you just spend what you feel comfortable spending, and what common sense dictates. But, if for any reason you need to keep costs low, a coffee date is a great way to do that. Of course, coffee from a coffee shop is more expensive than coffee brewed at home.

But that’s beside the point because we’re not recommending you take anyone home on a first date. Just keep thinking about how $20 max at the café (that’s if you decide to throw in a sweet treat) compares to $50 at the movies or for drinks, or $100 or so for dinner and drinks. When you stack up the finances, a coffee date sounds like a pretty great idea.

Coffee Dates Come With Flexible Time Tables

A coffee outing makes a perfect first date because you can make it as quick or long lasting as you want. If you feel right away that things aren’t quite right between the two of you, you can chug down your coffee, say a nice “thank you,” and have the whole date over with in a snap.

On the other hand, if you sense your first-date partner is your potential soul mate and both parties are enjoying the conversation and the vibe, then this type of date can linger until almost… whenever! And it can just as nicely transition into “Do you want to grab some dinner? I’m hungry,” and more fun into the night.

Coffee Keeps Us Clear-Headed

Last, but certainly not less important, this brew-filled date trumps “cocktail” first dates because we can keep our wits about us. There are no coffee goggles that will make your date seem more attractive, more in tune with what you’re saying, or more of anything that really isn’t there. Coffee dates (more so than with drink dates) allow us just shoot from the hip with who we really are, without giving away things about ourselves that should probably stay private on a first date.

So what do you think about coffee dates as perfect first dates? Have you gone on one before or asked someone out on one?

From First Starbucks Café: Starbucks Pike Place K Cups Available Now

Enjoy Starbucks K-cups Pike Place Roast by CoffeeForLess

These days, Starbucks is a household name when it comes to coffee, known as much for its excellent brews as it is for its friendly service, tantalizing treats, and music, too. But legend has it that it wasn’t always that way… Read on for details!

Humble Beginnings

Three former University of San Francisco classmates opened the first Starbuck’s Café in 1971 at 2000 Western Avenue. It was later moved to Seattle’s Pike Place Market, where it has remained ever since. It’s amusing to think of these three scrappy young entrepreneurs hashing out the details of what would become one of the most successful businesses in the world, perhaps wondering if they had enough cash to cover the startup costs. But the rest, as they say, is history.

Great Coffee Around the World

Now, there’s a Starbucks on every street, in just about every part of the world. When you want a great cup of coffee, you look for Starbucks’ iconic green mermaid logo and you know you’re in for a treat, whether you’re in Phoenix, Beijing, or London.

Bring the Starbucks Experience Home

About the only place you couldn’t get a hot, fresh cup of Starbucks coffee was at home… at least until now. Yes, you read that correctly. Sure, there were beans for sale in the market, but what about coffee for people who are living life a bit of a faster pace? Well now you can now make Starbucks Pike Place Roast coffee at home with your Keurig K-Cup machine.

Pike Place Roast was inspired by Starbucks’ origin story: the time when it was just a small, scrappy coffeehouse with a big destiny, serving up delicious cups of coffee to grateful guests, while the lively sounds of Pike Place Market drifted in through its opened windows. And now, that spirit lives on in the new Starbucks Pike Place k-cups!

Starbucks Quality in a K-Cup

Just like the beans, Starbucks Pike Place k-cups are made from a proprietary blend of high altitude-grown, 100% Arabica coffee beans. Pike Place Roast is a delicious, medium-blend coffee handcrafted to have a smooth body, a rich aroma, and subtle hints of cocoa and toasted nuts. It’s just the thing to clear away the fog on a rainy Seattle morning.

Coffee connoisseurs know that it’s not just the coffee beans that make a great cup of coffee; it’s also the preparation method. Because the Keurig process is so precise, you’ll be enjoying your Starbucks Pike Place k-cups coffee exactly as it was intended to taste.

It’s (Almost) Like Having a Starbucks at Home

Thanks to Starbucks Pike Place Roast K-Cups, you don’t have to make the trip down to your local Starbucks to enjoy the richness of your favorite coffee house’s freshly roasted beans. Now, there’s truly a Starbucks on every corner, including the corner near the kitchen countertop, where you keep your Keurig!

Could The Ethiopian Town Of Yirgacheffe Be the Birthplace of Coffee?

History of Coffee from CoffeeForLess

Ethiopia is well known by many for being the birthplace of coffee. Legend has it that a goatherd witnessed goats eating berries from a tree, becoming extra high-spirited, and later sleepless in the evening. The goatherd relayed his finding to the priests of his local monastery, who began experimenting with the berries. The abbot discovered that it enabled him to increase his alertness and stamina through long evening prayer sessions. Soon, the whole monastery was using coffee to improve their performance.

Ethiopian Coffee Culture

Ethiopia-coffeeCoffee would eventually become a large part of Ethiopian culture. In fact, Ethiopians prefer to keep the best beans in the local economy, as they have developed a strong culture around drinking and enjoying the brew. Most other cultures tend to export the premium beans (which fetch top prices on the global commodities markets), and to leave the dregs for local consumption.

SEE ALSO: Coffee Facts & History

In fact, Ethiopians have created great ceremony around their enjoyment of coffee. They have created a ceremony that might be compared with the Chinese and Japanese tea ceremonies. In the coffee ceremony, the beans go through the full preparation process, from roasting through to the final pour. Traditionally, a young woman in a white dress will perform the ceremony for participants. The ceremony is a central part of social life in Ethiopian villages and takes place at three times of the day: morning, noon, and night, in cities like Yirgacheffe.

Yirgacheffe Bean Diversity

After the diaspora of the coffee bean via early trade routes, the bean began to diversify according to the climate it found itself in. Thus, the generic term ″coffee″ no longer implies a single flavor profile. There are as many flavor profiles for coffee as there are regions that grow the bean.

In Ethiopia alone, there is a wide variety available. The Sidamo region is Ethiopia’s primary growing region, and it includes the original Yirgacheffe beans. While people do compare coffee from Sidamo to other varieties, such as Kenyan beans or even Central American varieties, they are effectively comparing green apples and red, or tangerines and navel oranges.

Ethiopia’s Harrar region may not have been the first to cultivate coffee, but that’s okay, beans from there are wild, which means that the beans are allowed to dry on the branch. This natural process yields a sweeter, fruitier flavor that some people compare to blueberry, but also to cardamom and cocoa. Compare these Harrar beans to typical Robusta or Arabica beans.

Everyone has their favorite bean and roaster, but coffee lovers should all seek out the Ethiopian beans for a real treat. Keep an eye out for Yirgacheffe or Sidamo beans to get a taste of what those early monks enjoyed, and then move on to coffee from Harrar for a completely new taste. Ethiopian coffee should certainly be sampled at least once by any true lover of the bean!

Save a trip to the grocery store with this coffee creamer recipe

Coffee Creamer Recipes You Can Make at Home by CoffeeForLess

Coffee with cream is a treat that so many love every day. And of course, many of us love the creamers that are specially flavored with ingredients like hazelnut or mocha. However, the store-bought creamers don’t always have the perfect blend of flavor to suit your exact needs, or you save the flavored creamers for special occasions.

But did you know that it’s possible to create your own flavored creamer at home, using a simple coffee creamer recipe? By learning how to make coffee creamer on your own, you can save a trip to the store and have a unique addition to your next coffee experience.

Homemade Is Always Better

When you make your own items at home, you have immediate control over all of the ingredients. You can limit the sugar or add extra sweetness, if that’s your passion. You can limit the creaminess and milk-fat, or decide to go whole hog in your coffee creamer recipe. You might even create wholly unique flavors that your friends can only find at your house, or end up creating a product that’s worthy of a new small business venture!

Choose Your Base First in the Coffee Creamer Recipe

When you learn how to make coffee creamer, you will first need to decide how heavy you’d like the creamer to be. You can go for decadent cream, whole milk, half-and-half or even a non-dairy milk such as almond milk, hemp milk, or soy milk. Some people use condensed milk, too.

Keep in mind that you can even get soy milk in a ″cream″ variety that is thicker and just as satisfying as dairy cream. Start with about a pint of milk or milk substitute in your coffee creamer recipe. From this point, you can create as many varieties as you see fit.

Use Your Favorite Ingredients

For French vanilla, you can add vanilla extract to your milk. Use two teaspoons of extract to the milk and mix well. For an extra homemade flair, use vanilla beans. Slice them open and scrape out the insides until you have two teaspoons. This may take some extra mixing, but the results will be well worth it. If you’d like a ″Strudel″ variety, add a tablespoon of cinnamon and a teaspoon of almond extract to your coffee creamer recipe.

Coconuts Coffee Creamer Recipe

Coconuts are everywhere these days, so why not ride the wave with a coconut-flavored coffee creamer? For a thicker result, start with a can of coconut milk, and then thin it out with regular coconut milk that can be found with the other milk alternatives. If that’s not enough, add in two teaspoons of cocoa powder. Hazelnut extract might also be a worthy addition, as is cinnamon. Use two teaspoons of either of those in your coffee creamer recipe.

Keep Experimenting!

As you can see, learning how to make coffee creamer is relatively simple, and you can experiment with as many flavors as you can dream up. Add raspberry syrup, peppermint oil, or caramel topping to your cream base and adjust to your taste. If you have an espresso machine with a milk-steaming attachment, you might froth your creamer and make extra-fancy cappuccinos for your friends!

The Coffee Chemistry Behind Great Tasting Coffee

Coffee Chemistry To Great Tasting Coffee by CoffeeForLess

Image credit: Greg Rodgers, Flickr

If you’re a coffee connoisseur, then you know: not all coffee is created equally. But how can two cups of coffee be so different? They’re ostensibly the same thing: coffee. And yet, they can be totally dissimilar experiences. What separates great coffee from mediocre? The answer is: coffee chemistry.

The Water Part of Coffee Chemistry

You might not think too much about the water you use to make your coffee, but it can actually have a substantial effect on the final product.

According to chemist Christopher H. Hendon, soft water (water with low mineral content) tends to produce bland coffee. Hard water has minerals that cling to certain volatile organic compounds in coffee, bringing out the flavors.

While you can’t control the chemical composition of the water that comes from your tap, you can buy coffee beans intended for hard or soft water. Give it a try. You might be surprised by the results.

How the Grind Factors Into Coffee Chemistry

The more finely a set quantity of coffee is ground, the more total surface area it has. More surface area allows for a faster extraction of the chemical compounds present in coffee beans. That’s not necessarily a good thing.

Coffee that has been over extracted tends to be unpleasantly bitter tasting. While some folks like that flavor, most find it to be rather unpalatable.

The key is to find the sweet spot, where the caffeine and desirable volatile organic compounds have been extracted, but the bitter organic acids are left in the beans. A fine grind allows all of the compounds in coffee to be extracted quickly, including the ones we don’t like the flavor of. That’s why grinding coffee to a somewhat chunky consistency is often a better choice when making drip coffee.

If you’re making coffee with a French press, you’ll want to err on the side of a coarse grind, as pressed coffee is typically brewed for five minutes or more.

Espresso, on the other hand, requires a fine grind, as the brew time for an espresso shot is rather quick.

Temperature

Generally speaking, the hotter the water, the faster extraction occurs. That’s why cold coffee takes so long to brew. Again, setting speed records for extraction isn’t what we’re after – this is all about using coffee chemistry to get the ideal cup.

The ideal water temperature range for brewing coffee is generally regarded as being between 195 and 205 degrees Fahrenheit. Go much colder, and the desirable compounds won’t be full extracted. If the water’s too hot, we’ll end up with more organic acids than we’d like, and our coffee will be bitter.

The Ratio

The ratio of coffee to water is another important variable. Too much water, and our coffee will be bland and watery. Not enough, and we’ll end up with over extracted coffee that is unpleasantly strong, at least to most people’s taste buds.

Brew Time

As mentioned before, brew time varies depending on the brewing method. Espresso is brewed quickly, while pressed coffee is the result of a slower process. Still, each brewing style has a goldilocks zone, where the desirable volatile oils and caffeine are extracted before the bitter organic acids allowed to make their presence known. How’s that for a lesson in coffee chemistry?

Why Some People Prefer Bitter Coffee

Some People Actually Prefer Bitter Coffee by CoffeeForLess

Bitterness can be defined as a strong flavor or twinge of an aftertaste noted at the back of the tongue.

In the wild, bitterness is usually a sign that something should not be eaten. But over the course human history, we’ve developed something of an affection for this chemical warning sign. We drink bitter beer and cocktails. We savor bitter greens in juices and salads. We swig grapefruit juice at breakfast. And some of us even adore the taste of bitter coffee.

What Is Bitterness?

We’ve all tasted bitterness, but what is it, exactly? Basically, it can be defined as a strong flavor or twinge of an aftertaste noted at the back of the tongue. If acidity is bright and lively, bitterness is its dark and moody cousin.

Nice Genes

Human beings are very sensitive to bitterness, and we have been for a long time. There are 24 distinct genes for bitter sensitivity, which is more than we have for sweet, salty, or savory tastes.

Some people are “supertasters,” and it’s thought that they’re less likely to be interested in drinking bitter coffee or consuming other bitter foods or drinks. To them, bitterness can cause serious irritation. But for the rest of the population, bitter compounds can be tolerable, or even desirable.

Bitterness as Counterbalance in Coffee

Bitterness, in and of itself, is not what most would call a pleasant taste. But in combination with other flavors, bitter coffee can provide an interesting counterbalance.

A coffee with a bright, floral nose can be an even richer experience if there’s a certain amount of bitterness to add to its complexity. Bitterness can also make a coffee taste more full and robust, which is definitely a desirable quality.

Too Much of a Good Thing

Some coffee drinkers love an earthy cup of bitter coffee, while others prefer coffee that’s more acidic. But even for those who like their coffee on the bitter side, there’s a limit. And some varieties of bitterness are less desirable than others.

While a strong roast tends to make a coffee more bitter, those with a taste for it generally regard this type of bitterness as pleasantly substantial.

In contrast, even those who enjoy bitter taste sensations do not typically enjoy the type of bitterness that comes from over extraction during brewing. Coffee can also be made too bitter if its ground too finely, or if too much ground coffee is used to brew too few cups of coffee.

Best Coffee for Bitter Coffee Lovers

The coffee species Robusta is known for its bitterness. This type of bean is typically used to make instant coffee, but certain specialty coffees are blended with Robusta beans to provide a counterpoint to an especially bright bouquet.

And for those who love bitter coffee, some vendors offer pure Robusta coffee. So while Arabica is often seen as the superior choice, Robusta certainly has its share of admirers.

Customize Your Morning Coffee With a Personalized Coffee Cup Design

A Custom Coffee Cup Design Personalizes Your Morning Joe by CoffeeForLess

Ah, coffee. It’s the perfect way to start your day, and to keep it going. Of course, that morning pick-me-up is even better with a personalized coffee cup design.

Let Your Cup Do the Talking

Not a morning person? The only thing worse than the morning blues is having to explain that you don’t like to be bothered until you’ve had a couple of cups of coffee. So why not let your coffee cup do the talking for you, by creating your very own coffee cup design? Go with a mug that says. “I don’t like morning people. Or mornings. Or People.” Or, “I flunked anger management.”

Preserve Special Memories With Coffee Cup Designs

When the going gets tough at work, it’s good to remind yourself why you’re working so hard. You can custom order coffee mugs with pictures of your friends, family or pets. That way, when you’re in the midst of filling out some ridiculously unnecessary paperwork, you can take a moment to reflect on the people who make it all worthwhile.

The Joke’s On You

Laughter is the best medicine… next to coffee, of course. Bring a little bit of much-needed humor into your workday with a coffee cup design that says “Another 8 hours of pretending to work,” or “I’m silently correcting your grammar.”

Fun Shapes Work Well With Coffee Cup Designs

Who says coffee mugs can’t be works of art? We’ve seen cups shaped like prescription medicine bottles, guns, skulls, octopi, golf balls, donuts, and Rubik’s cubes. There are also coffee cup designs in the form of giraffes, skulls, hearts, and Ninja Turtles. There’s no need to settle for a boring coffee cup when you can have so much fun.

Tell Us What You Really Think

What if you’ve seen all the novelty coffee cups on the Internet, but none of them really conveys your message? No problem. You can order coffee cups that are custom printed with your own favorite catch-phrase, joke, motto, or quote. Plus, they’re available in custom colors and unique fonts.

Promote Your Brand With a Unique Coffee Cup Design

If you’re a small-business owner, you’re probably eager to increase your exposure. Why not order coffee cups designed with your logo and web address, and give or sell them to your clients or friends? Everyone can use an extra coffee cup, and wherever they go, they’ll be spreading awareness of your awesome business.

3D Printed Coffee Cups

You’ve probably heard that 3D printing is the next big thing. Have you seen some of the 3D printed coffee cups that makers are coming out with these days? They’re pretty amazing, especially for coffee cup designs. Check out the ones made last year by Cunicode. What a wild way to enjoy your joe!
