I just want a plain cup of coffee. But I discover that I must decide between a flat white and a long black.
I use Google to look up the Australian version of an ‘Americano misto’ and see that a long black is an approximate equivalent, just add milk.
Since I already know how to speak English, I use this language expertise to order “A long black with milk, please.” It seems to work.
Order a long black.
This long black is in a garden setting at The Farm, in South Willunga. It’s a cafe, winery, cellar door, olive grove, vineyard, and bed-and-breakfast accommodation.
