Google Doodle Celebrates Flat White Coffee

Google celebrates flat white coffee on March 11, 2024. You’re not dreaming if you awaken to see a Google Doodle depicting a hot cup of coffee! It appears like the search engine behemoth is honouring the wonderful Flat White beverage.

However, what exactly is a flat white, and why is it deserving of special mention? Let’s take a closer look at this rich coffee blend.

Sumit: Hey, have you checked out Google today? The homepage looks amazing!

Sanket: Oh? I haven’t opened it yet. What’s special?

Sumit: Well, Google is celebrating Flat White Coffee with this adorable animated Google doodle. It’s like a mini-coffee journey right on the search page.

Sanket: No way! Flat White deserves all the recognition. It’s like the unsung hero of the coffee world.

Sumit: Absolutely! The Google Doodle captures the essence of flat white perfectly. You’ve got these animated coffee beans jumping around, and then they turn into a steaming cup of Flat White.

Sanket: That sounds so cute! Google sure knows how to make learning about things fun.

Sumit: And they’ve even included a little history about Flat White. Did you know it originated in Australia or New Zealand? It’s like a coffee heritage lesson!

A coffee beverage that originated in Australia and New Zealand is called a flat white. It’s the perfect balance between a robust espresso and a creamy latte. This is what makes it unique:

Base of Espresso
A single or double shot of espresso is used in a flat white to create the drink’s core and give it a strong coffee flavour.

Steaming Milk
The flat white, in contrast to a latte, utilizes less milk—usually two parts milk to one part espresso. This gives the coffee a rich, smooth texture without overpowering its flavour.

Not Macrofoam, But Microfoam
The texture of the milk is crucial to a flawless, flat white. Flat whites need microfoam, which is made up of small bubbles mixed throughout the milk to give them a velvety quality, as opposed to lattes, which have a thick layer of frothy foam.

Sanket: Seriously? I always thought it was from Italy or another country. Why the Flat White Is a Coffee Favorite and Its Allure?

Sumit: Nope, it’s down under! They’ve got this perfect blend of espresso and microfoam, creating this velvety, smooth taste. And Google Doodle captures it all.
The Flat White’s ideal balance is the reason for its widespread appeal. Smoother and less powerful than plain espresso, it packs a stronger coffee punch than lattes. What makes coffee lovers adore it is this:

Strong and Dense Flavor
A pleasing coffee flavour is guaranteed by the espresso foundation.
lustrous, smooth texture
The mouthfeel is opulent, thanks to the microfoam.
Ideal Dimensions
Flat whites provide a more concentrated coffee experience in a portion that is manageable when compared to bigger lattes.
Savour it unflavored or modify it with a dash of flavouring or sweetener.

Sanket: I need to try a flat white ASAP. The way you’re describing it makes my usual cup of Joe sound boring. How to Make Your Own Flat White: A Successful Recipe

Sumit: Trust me, once you go flat white, you never go back. It’s like the Goldilocks of coffee—not too strong, not too milky, just right.
You’re interested in the Flat White now, so why not give it a try? Here’s a simple recipe that you can simply modify to suit your tastes:

A single or double espresso shot (about 30–60 millilitres)
120–150 ml of whole milk (whole milk gives the greatest texture; skim or reduced-fat milk can also be used)
Not required: Sugar, flavouring syrup, and dusting cocoa powder

Espresso maker (or Moka pot for strong coffee brewing)
A French press or milk frother can be utilized for a do-it-yourself frothing technique.

Glass, thermometer, and milk pitcher (optional)

Remove your shot(s) of espresso.
If you’re using an espresso machine, make espresso according to the directions provided by the manufacturer.

Whirl the milk.
As the espresso is brewing, warm up and whisk your milk. A temperature range of 140°F (60°C) to 150°F (65°C) is the ideal range. If using a steamer wand, stir the milk into a whirlpool while adding air to produce microfoam. If using a French press, quickly plunge the plunger up and down to produce froth after heating the milk.
Swirl and tap
After gently swirling the milk to achieve a smooth consistency, tap the milk pitcher against the counter to eliminate any big bubbles.
Transfer the espresso.
Fill your mug with the espresso shot(s).

The miracle of microfoam
Pour carefully while holding the milk pitcher slightly above the espresso. To start, pour a small stream of milk to form a white base.
Twist and crown

Tilt the pitcher as the mug fills to form a white ring in the middle (here is your canvas, latte art fans!). Pour the remaining milk in a gentle enough manner to form a thin layer of microfoam on top.
To taste, add sugar (optional).
If desired, add sugar, flavouring syrup, or a dash of cocoa powder.

Sanket: Tell me the tip for the perfect flat white coffee.

Sumit: For ideal foaming, use cold, fresh milk.
Keep an eye on the milk’s temperature; if it’s too hot, it will burn; if it’s too cold, it won’t foam correctly.
Get proficient at pouring; the secret is to build layers for a well-rounded flavour.

Try experimenting with different kinds of milk; skim or low-fat can be used for a lighter option, but full milk produces the creamiest texture.
And that’s it! You can make flat whites at home that rival those found in cafés with a little effort and this recipe. Whether you’re enjoying Google’s Doodle or just in the mood for some delectable

Sanket: I’m sold! But tell me more about the doodle. Is it just coffee beans turning into a cup?

Sumit: No, there’s more to it. As the beans transform, you see a little coffee art forming on top of the flat white. It’s like a latte art tutorial in a Google Doodle.

Sanket: Google is getting fancy with its Google Doodle. I love it. Anything else?

Sumit: Yeah, there’s a link to some interesting articles about Flat White, its origins, and how it became a global sensation. It’s like a virtual coffee tour.

Sanket: Nice! I always love learning about the stories behind my favourite things, especially when it comes to coffee.

Sumit: And you know what’s the best part? If you hover over the doodle, it says, “Celebrate Flat White Coffee.” It’s like an invitation to join the coffee celebration!

Sanket: I’m all in for a coffee celebration. This doodle is making my day already.
