SAN FRANCISCO (CBS SF) — Starbucks will begin serving a new coffee drink Tuesday in the U.S. that’s been a big hit in Australia.

The ‘flat white’ is similar to a latte, but with less water.  Baristas will use whole steamed milk to create a smooth texture, and pour it into a double shot of espresso, allowing the coffee to rise to the top.
