    And where would the Australia/NZ invented "Piatto Bianco" fit in ?

    Somewhere around precisely the same spot as "latte"

    Almost makes more sense than some of the other ratios I've been trying to grasp

    Hmmm I think the PHICETTO is wrong.

    The normal phi ratio (in terms of coffee) is:

    (espresso+milk)/milk = milk/espresso

    When measuring the milk to get the 1.618, do you include the froth?

    You might be thinking of the Pythagoretto: espresso˛ = milk˛ + froth˛

    Err.. yes. Oh, that's right, don't have to use hippopotamus milk or something with a Pythagoretto?

    In practice, I think it would be difficult to tell the difference between "Just espresso", "Infinccino", and an "Avogadro". The latter two just mean that the milk is only in the same room as the espresso.
