All Alternative Milk

A fairly recent phenomenon that feels like it's been around since the first days of speciality coffee, requesting plant-based alternatives, or 'alternative milk', to cows milk when ordering your daily coffee is a sure way to help you sound like you're a bit of a coffee aficionado. With options such as soy, oat, almond, hemp, and even more, there really is an alternative milk for anyone and everyone, whether you're vegan, have an allergy, or just wanting to do your bit for the environment.

Whilst there are many that say that cows milk remains to be the healthiest - largely due to some plant-based brands adding extra sugar to their milks -, there are certainly many environmental and health benefits to be had with alternative milks, let alone any taste preferences you may have. One thing for certain is that alternative milks tend to be more expensive than their diary equivalent, however, we and many other roasters and cafes would certainly argue it's worth paying a little extra for making your best of an espresso coffee.

The coffee industry is in crisis. Informed purchases are needed

Issue: Coffee prices are in crisis, which threatens the very existence of many coffee producers, and so, the future of coffee globally.For more: GUSTATORY on Sky News Radio (Interview)
Our Answer: Informed purchasing decisions are advised, from the independent coffee roasters featured here on the GUSTATORY marketplace. Through direct-to-source relationships, roasters are able to protect their supply chains from the effects of price volatility as they form special relationships with producers. These relationships also protect producers as roasters often commit to fixed term and fixed price contracts, which give producers certainty. This certainty is what producers need in order to not only survive but thrive, committing to sustainable practices and addressing other global problems that are threatening the industry such as climate change.

Make their commitment your commitment. Support independent coffee roasters and you’ll be making a difference before you even have your first cup of coffee.
