    About time, the ubiquity of the flat white here is really holding back the advancement of more advanced coffee drinks like the caramel mocha frappucino. This is 2015 after all.

    Well, I guess the term is a bit racialist, but y'know, forgive and forget.

    Undertones perhaps, but generally complimentary ones surely?

    The Flat White Australia Policy has been in disfavour for decades so no need to ban it now.
    The Long Black Power Movement is also a thing of the past.
    If we have to ban something, lets ban Cappuccinos that hide their true self under a veil of froth and chocolate.

    I say we ban the terrible baristas or the stale coffee that some use.
