    It's debatable.

    But essentially a cappuccino is 1/3 espresso, 1/3 milk and 1/3 foam.

    A flat white doesn't involve the foam. Nor does a latte.

    A barista will be able to answer definitively!

    Yeah it just the different milk to coffee to froth ratios.
    Cappuccino should be 1/3 milk, 1/3 coffee and 1/3 froth.
    Latte only has a tiny bit of froth.
    Flat white has no froth.

    Also the way it's served.

    (From memory, it's been years since I've worked as a barista)

    Different amounts of foam, and a cappuccino has chocolate powder on top.

    I can't really tell the difference between a latte and a flat white except for the cup it's served in. So it's about the amount of froth?

    I thought a latte has more milk than a flat white?

    It's the foam and the way the milk is spun. Cap more air more froth choc on top Latte not as much as either and flat white 1 mm froth if that.

    Cappuccino is 1/3 espresso
    1/3 milk
    1/3 ffroth
    latte should be espresso with milk with approx. 1cm froth on top
    flat white is no froth but should have the coffee crema on top
    many WA places make there flat whites frothy (like a latte but stronger with usually a double shot) and the lattes weaker with only a single shot.

    I was a barista for 4 years and a barista trainer for 2 years.

    ETA: it really does depend where you go and who the baristas are taught by because I have seen coffees done so many ways.
