I think Lithos is correct. White coffee would just mean coffee with milk, but since coffee culture has changed in the UK I think it would probably be called an Americano with milk, or a caffe lungo machiato in Italy.
But would it be, generally, instant in the UK, or drip or plunger?
a few places around here that do offer something other than espresso, but you could probably count them on one hand. We don't drink much coffee, and it's easier to portion control espresso. And espresso's seen as a more...urbane, I guess, drink than drip coffee, since drip is what we had before
we got espresso.
Which brings us to the next question - what would you do if you're an American in a New Zealander's house and ask to have your coffee with no sugar?

I cannot help but feel sorry for those two embassy agents, as the coffee they received was most likely instant.
