Australia is one of the coffee capitals of the world and when it comes to lattes and cappuccinos, we’re always on the lookout for the latest coffee trends and product innovations. So, what is the cuppa that everyone’s craving now down under? A creamy oat milk latte using new Califia Farms Oat Barista Blend!
Crafted with and for baristas, Califia’s new oat milk recently burst on to the Australian café scene after a wildly successful launch in the US, and it’s already fast becoming a coffee favourite here. It’s no surprise with more people now looking for non-dairy alternatives for health and environmental reasons (1 in 6 Aussies now opt for plant-based options), although many are also making the switch purely for the exciting new flavour.
“We’re finding more and more customers are requesting oat milk because it’s great tasting, incredibly creamy and has a similar mouthfeel to dairy while being completely lactose free. The Australian coffee customer is great at trying and adopting new products into their daily coffee ritual and the feedback so far is overwhelmingly positive - customers are enjoying the texture and the taste,” says Demelza Jones, well-known Barista and founder of Same Cup, a group dedicated to promoting equality and inclusivity in the Australian coffee scene.
Made with whole rolled oats, Califia Farms Oat Barista Blend is completely unsweetened (no added sugar) and has half the amount of natural sugar as competing brands plus no gums. Delightfully delicious it’s also soy free, dairy free, vegan, non-GMO, kosher, and the bonus is that it’s a breeze to work with too.
“Califia Farms Oat Barista Blend is great from a barista’s perspective because it’s so easy to use. It’s super easy to steam and makes lovely, crisp latte art. It’s also rich and creamy but has a neutral flavour that complements coffee perfectly without overpowering it,” adds Demelza.
