Flat White vs Cappuccino: Which One Reigns Supreme?

flat white vs. cappuccino

The main difference between the flat white vs cappuccino is the milk-to-espresso ratio and foam type.  Microfoam is the flat white’s chief characteristic. But the cappuccino’s foam is thicker and rests atop the steamed milk. Cappuccino’s foam is also referred to as “macrofoam”—the opposite of the flat white’s tiny-bubbling froth.
