Califia Farms has launched a new barista-style drink in the UK – the Oat Barista Blend.
We Brit’s love a good cup of tea, but sadly many vegan milk alternatives don’t make the perfect cuppa. Keen to give vegans in the UK more dairy-free milk options that can be used in hot drinks to create a milky drink that doesn’t split, Califia Farms has launched a new barista-style drink – the Oat Barista Blend.
Califia Farms’ Oat Barista Blend is made with whole rolled oats and is completely unsweetened with no gums or stabilisers. According to the company, the Barista Blend “steams beautifully, perfectly pairs with coffee and tastes great by itself.”
To ensure it is the perfect partner for hot drinks, Califia Farms worked closely with baristas to ensure it functions well and tastes delicious to create a creamy drink that perfectly complements the natural, robust flavour of coffee or tea.
In a statement sent to Vegan Food & Living, Greg Steltenpohl, founder of Califia Farms commented: “Califia Farms has been a leader in innovation by bringing diversified plant-based products to market that consistently deliver on taste, nutrition, quality and performance- and our new Oat Barista Blend is no different.
“To craft this product, we worked in partnership with the barista community to ensure it paired well with coffee and espresso drinks from a taste and texture standpoint, foamed easily without splitting for impeccable latte art, and met consumer nutritional demands by being completely unsweetened and free of gums and stabilisers. We’ve been a dependable partner to the speciality coffee trade for some time now, and offering a new Oat Barista Blend was a clear next step to help cafes reliably meet their customer’s demands and quality expectations”.
Califia Farms Oat Barista Blend will launch in Morrisons stores from September.
