Coffee Translation: Piccolo Latte

When I first came to Australia and ordered a cappuccino…out came this frothy drink with dusted chocolate on it….SAY WHAT??!

Then I ordered a macchiato, and a small little cup with a dot of milk on it (“macchiato = mark of”, DUH!).

Apparently back in Calgary, people at Phil & Seb sometimes order flat whites. WTF is that?

Hopefully this is the first installment of a series to unconfuse the confused.

Edit: So I guess it’s not evident from the video, but piccolos are like N. American macchiatos but a bit thinner in milk but other than that its the same.
