Starbucks is adding an espresso drink to its menu Tuesday.

The coffee chain’s ‘Flat White’ is made with two ristretto shots of espresso and steamed whole milk. Starbucks says the ristretto shot yields a sweeter, more intense coffee flavor.

“Starbucks baristas perfectly steam milk into creamy micro-foam and carefully free pour to allow the espresso to rise to the top of the beverage for a bold coffee flavor with a sweeter finish,” a spokesperson said.

The drink, popularized in Australia, has been available for a few years at Starbucks shops in Australia and the United Kingdom.

The company in December opened its first Starbucks Reserve Roastery and Tasting Room in Seattle. The stores are partly designed to highlight limited-availability coffees. Starbucks plans to open at least 100 of these stores over the next five years, which some of the first ones opening in Chicago, Los Angeles and New York.
