I’m going to talk about coffee.
The Aussies have become, in far less than a decade, total coffee aficionados. Bad coffee is not to be tolerated. If you ask for coffee you might get asked back barista coffee or instant? You don’t see a lot of brewed coffee.
They also have a pretty uniform way to order coffee and I’ve got mine “skinny flat white”. There are two sizes, regular and tall so if you don’t say tall you are supposed to get regular.
For the first week or so I was going with “flat white” which was ok but really too milky so then I went with “flat white with an extra shot” which was nice with the extra shot but didn’t work in cutting the milk because they just added more. Now I’m getting “skinny flat white” which is working best. I don’t know what percent they use for skinny…I should find out! They don’t have the add-your-own-milk option so that’s why I’ve been working with what there is.
So one time I was in the mood for iced coffee and I saw “iced cappuccino” on the menu, which I ordered, and what I got was a cappuccino float! A cappuccino with ice cream added. Ok, I ate the whole thing.
