Flat White – Now at Starbucks


You know how I raved about the Flat White after my travels to Australia? Oh how we miss them.

Upon return, we found that there is a café in Minneapolis called Royal Grounds that makes them! We haven’t made the trek yet, though.

Until yesterday, when I learned that Starbucks is about to add Flat Whites to their menu:

What Exactly is a Flat White? Get the Lowdown on Starbucks’ newest menu item.

Then this, morning, Thrillist posts that it is happening TODAY.

Here’s the New Permanent Addition to Starbucks’ Menu.

I’m curious! I wonder how authentic they are? Do you still ask if you want it with a certain number of sugars? 😉 This is really, pretty much the only time that I’m not drinking black coffee or an Americano, so they better get it right.

Here’s the thing, though. I don’t get to Starbucks very often.  There is one only about ten minutes from my home {which is the same one closest to my work}. I don’t go in that direction very often, though. And we have a Caribou Coffee and a couple local coffee shops much, much closer. So I might even make it to Royal Grounds before Starbucks.

Now, if they’ll only sell a Caramel Slice. 😉

So, tell me, have you had a Flat White?

If so, how do you take yours?

Have you had the Flat White at Starbucks yet?

  1. My boss stops at Stabucks every morning on the way to work – triple shot Venti latte! I think it’s close to $5 a day. She was just telling me about that new drink – never had one before!

  2. I stopped at Starbucks with a coworker at lunch today and tried one! Was very convenient as I got a $20 Starbucks gift card from someone for Christmas. (I honestly don’t know who ~ they dropped it off at my work, but no one took the name!) Anywho, I thought it was good… but a LOT of foam. I thought there was supposed to be less? I also needed to add 2 Splenda’s as I didn’t think it was sweet at all. Not really sure what you will think of it. I became a fan of Americano’s thanks to you, I think they may be better, but its been a while since I’ve had one. Curious to know what you think once your finally go!

    • It should be foamy! They are not sweet at all. In Australia, if people want them sweet, most people order them – “Flat White, 1 sugar” or “Flat White, 2 sugars.” I know there is another way to order them, too, if you want it stronger. But I can’t remember what that is. Also, they call an espresso a “Short Black” and an Americano a “Long Black.” 😉

      Another thing I just thought of… Their sizes are *much* smaller than hours. A Starbucks “tall” (aka small) is probably their biggest size.
