Flat White

Dear Person Behind The Counter Making Coffee,

When I ask for a flat white coffee inna mug, I don't want a frappaccino, mugaccino, latte, or chocolate mocha. I want a flat white coffee. In a mug.I don't want to add any combination of flavoured syrups, whipped cream or sprinkles to change the taste. I want it to taste like coffee. Hot coffee. With a little milk and sugar. In a mug. Not an El Grande or other foreign word combination that means "big" in English. I want it in a mug. A big mug. Make me a black coffee in a large mug, then add some milk. I'll add the sugar. Don't heat the milk then add the coffee. Make it with hot water in a big mug, then add the milk. Is that too much to ask?

No froth. That's what "flat" means. Definately no froth, and absolutely no chocolate powder sprinkled artfully on top. If I want a cappuccino I would ask for a cappucino. Please do not force me to order a large black coffee with milk or I will say Certain Words. Loudly.

And the children in the shop will cry and I'll feel bad and then I'll be cranky at YOU, because I feel bad about upsetting kids in public and I STILL DON'T HAVE MY COFFEE, dammit.

Thank you.
