Almondmilk steams at a lower temperature than cow’s milk, so traditional formulations have made the great-tasting Almondmilk latte elusive… until now. We needed to innovate and create a better product that coffee shops could actually use.
Bakersfield, Calif (PRWEB) April 10, 2014
After many Bay Area coffee shops chose Califia’s Creamy Original Almondmilk as the Alternative Dairy of choice, Califia Farms decided to develop a special, shelf-stable package for foodservice and coffee shop operators. With foam and body as the priority, alongside taste and nutritional profile, Califia developed this product to meet the rising demand of consumers asking for Almondmilk in their lattes.
The 32 oz.Tetrapak shelf-stable package will help coffee shops and other foodservice outlets save space in their limited under-the-counter storage space. The product is the same smooth, creamy Califia Farms Almondmilk that fans have come to love with their coffee, but specifically formulated for better in-coffee application. “Almondmilk steams at a lower temperature than cow’s milk, so traditional formulations have made the great-tasting Almondmilk latte elusive… until now. We needed to innovate and create a better product that coffee shops could actually use,” said Greg Steltenpohl, CEO, Califia Farms. “We see consumers asking for Almondmilk at their favorite coffee shops every day on social media, as soy continues to lose favor with non-dairy drinkers because of taste and GMO concerns.”
Califia Farm’s Non-GMO Verified Almondmilk comes from raw almonds, ground to a fine meal and then made into a milk, resulting in a cleaner, smoother taste profile than the traditional commercial approach of using roasted almond paste to make almond milk. The top San Francisco coffee shops recognize the quality of Califia; Bay Area-institution Four Barrel entirely replaced soy with Califia Almondmilk, even attributing an increase in their bottom line to the swap to Califia Farms in a recent Barista Magazine interview. Califia Farms Barista Blend Almondmilk is now available for orders and should be refrigerated before use for optimal performance in lattes and cappuccinos.
