Large Flat White: $4.90
This cafe is out of my initial area for the Flat White Review, but they were nice enough to send me a message on Twitter so I thought I’d give them a try. After all, it is New Year’s Eve and I’ve got all the time in the world.
Coffee: Wow. Strong, full of flavour and very tasty. Didn’t give a bad, ashy aftertaste. I could drink a hundred of these if the caffeine didn’t kill me first! (5/5)

Presentation: Solid cup with a leak-proof lid, and tells me about the beans (Burton’s espresso). (3/3)
Verdict: This is the first perfect coffee of the review, and also outside of East Auckland. It’s a bit far away from me but I can say that if you want a GREAT flat white, then this is where you will find one. If this were going to be the last coffee I have in 2013, I’m glad it was this one. 2014’s first coffee will have a hell of an act to follow.
Overall rating: 13/13. Unlucky for some, but not for Tuihana Cafe. The first perfect flat white of the Flat White Review.
