We’re going to look at each of these milk individually to determine if they’ll ‘do your coffee good.’ Why bother with them if they don’t improve your cup of joe, right?
We realize there are many other uses for plant-based milks besides adding them to your coffee, but since we’re so fond of this treasured bean, we’ll stick to the java-enhancing features of these milks for the time being.
1- Almond milk
Let’s kick things off with a classic.
Cornering 63% of the plant-based milk market, almond milk is considered the most popular dairy alternative.
Super light and slightly creamy, this milk is the foam king when it comes to coffee!
That’s right, all those pretty (and incredibly tasty) lattes you see posted all over social media, both hot and iced, can be made with almond milk.
This nut milk creates a super stable foam to use atop your coffee, hot or cold.
Now, of course, you can simply add warmed almond milk to your hot coffee or a splash of refrigerated almond milk to your iced coffee or cold brew, but if you’re really going for looks and desire a layer of smooth velvety foam to rest on top of your brew, almond milk delivers consistently!
2- Coconut milk
Refrigerated coconut milk (as opposed to the thicker kind found in a can) is subtly sweet, light, but also slightly creamy. And, if you don’t mind the slight coconut flavor, it makes a wonderful addition to coffee.
The downside here? If you indeed don’t care for the flavor of coconut, you should be aware that most generally you’ll be able to detect this flavor when using coconut milk in your coffee.
Personally, I think the flavor is quite subtle, but some dislike using coconut milk in coffee specifically for the above mentioned reason.
In my experience, it doesn’t froth well, but if you have an espresso machine with a steaming wand, you can produce some decent foam if you’re looking to use it in a delicious latte.
My favorite way to enjoy unsweetened coconut milk is cold brewed with our Light Roast…absolutely refreshing!
