Are you a White Coffee drinker? If so, what’s your preferred milk based coffee?
Even though I don’t take milk with my coffee, I’m well aware the majority of Australians do. This all stems back to our coffee cultures Italian origins, when espresso become a popular beverage. To make it more palatable, steamed milk was added. Much like information pertaining to coffee bean origin being readily available, many cafes now emphasis ‘Grass to Glass’ milk, and can even tell you the breed of cows at the farm their milk is sourced from. The types of milk people desire varies, from full cream and reduced fat cow’s milk, plant based alternatives like soy and almond, and even the latest craze, camel milk. Several cafes now allow customers to BYO milk that suits their dietary requirements, while others have ditched the plant based and skinny option from their menu. This has had repercussion, with many refusing to frequent venues that don’t permit what is seen as a simple freedom of choice. Personally, it doesn’t bother me, but I wonder if it would, if I was a white coffee drinker. How do you feel about these trends? Are you influenced by a cafes choice of milk?
