Costa Coffee has come under fire for the introduction of a ‘black white’ to its menu.

In a bid to revamp the chain, the company recently launched the ‘Flat White Family‘ range on the back of the now-popular ‘flat white’.

According to a press release, the ‘Flat Family’ offers a ‘new range of styles and flavours’ and each beverage is ‘handcrafted by an expert barista using the purest coffee extraction method, a cortissimo shot – 21 grams of coffee extracted over 15 seconds to create shorter extraction’.

Sadly, it may take a little more convincing than that…
