114 Dominion Road
Mt Eden

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)

Milk: Perfectly done. Gave me that thing where you get velvety milk dregs in your cup when you near the bottom. Yeah, that. Did not detract from the taste. Wasn’t too hot either which made it that I could enjoy the drink straight away. (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.
