Cortado vs Flat White
Apologies for the lack of posts - I have been on the road, including Spain, this past week and I am heading back to London having consumed many cafe cortados. Which gets me to thinking - maybe I can cut down on the amount of milk I drink each day (given I consume at least 4 flat whites before 5pm) by swapping out a FW for a cortado now and then, or a stumpy (in Fernandez & Wells land). What a gem of a coffee a cortado is - I always find a macchiatto to be little more than a frothy espresso (so why not have an espresso I ask myself...) but a cortado has just enough milk to take the edge of the shot but not so much that you feel the dairy overload. Anyway, just a thought - don´t howl me down too quickly macchiatto fans!
