    buffalo milk, my flat white solution.

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    flat white is one of my favorite drinks. I am fully aware of the role of milk and coffee flavors are very important to create special flat white. I usually bought pasteurized milk that was sold in supermarkets. Several days ago, I was interested to use buffalo milk. In my suburb, western of sumatra, buffalo milk was usually processed into curds and that was a tradition from ancestor.
    buffalo milk pasteurization was quite impressive and made me really enjoy the flat white. maybe anyone here have any experience like me too??

    Re: buffalo milk, my flat white solution.

    not sure if there is a certain recipe (ratio among espresso, milk and forth) for flat white.
    I thought this drink only happens in Australia.
    One of my friend who works as a barista told me they just use the left-over milk w/ froth (normally come from the previous cappuccino) to pour into espresso then become a flat white.

    I have to say before I join this coffeesnob, I enjoy flat white too.
    Now, I prefer if the barsita can make a proper forth in the drink, so I order cappuccino.
    Sadly, when I start to roast my own bean, I feel its a wasting money to pay the coffee from a ordinary shop.(At least in Townsville).

    Back to the topic, sorry I have never tried the buffalo milk.
    Can you give me a head-up where I can buy the buffalo milk?
    Never saw it in grocery store.

    Re: buffalo milk, my flat white solution.

    there is no standard of composition between espresso, milk and foam for my flat white. so it all depends on individual taste
    I also tend to be more trusting of my own home roasting and I love the city +. it makes me understand about the character of coffee.
    iím so sorry colin, actually I also wanted to share. but the buffalo milk that sold in packs not yet exist. I have bought it directly to the buffalo ranchers in western Sumatra, Indonesia.

    wow....From Western Sumatra....
    How can you bring the buffalo milk back to Australia..
    I even have problem to bring some very simple mooncake from Taiwan into Australia last time I went back.

    I totally agree the importance of milk when drinking milk base espresso.
    Few times I try to save some money, I bought the home brand one to school (people use the milk without notice, aka steal).
    Then my milk base coffee taste terrible... (then I left for random people to use).

    Since we try so hard to roast a good bean, the bad milk just destroy the all effort in the drink.

    You make me feel like to try the buffalo milk so bad now...>_<

    If you have a closer read of his first post Colin, you will see that he lives in Western Sumatra!* :D
    I recall when in India that Buffalo milk was of a very strong flavour, clearly different to cows milk. (In India anyway)

    that buffalo milk enough to make me to try again and again, even though the flavour is quite strong. buffalo milk which I try provide the right balance of sweetness. that is what I want come up in my favorite coffee.
