Almond Breeze celebrated the successful launch of its Barista Blend almond milk with a latte art master class.
Launched in 2014, the barista blend was the first almond milk variety designed especially for coffee and baristas.
Since its launch, the almond milk has seen double-digit growth as almond milk is the fastest growing milk in the non-dairy category including a takeover of soy in terms of dollar retail sales.
Partnering with Emily Coumbis a multi-award winning latte artist, Almond Breeze hosted a latte art master class to highlight the creative and unique coffee experience that is rainbow latte art.
Ms Coumbis said people are learning about coffee and their standards are getting higher.
“There is a growing demand for baristas to create latte art as it is very much a growing trend,” she said.
“A lot of baristas have struggled for some time to obtain the same latte art results with a dairy-free alternative due to consistency and texture.
“Almond Breeze has really led the way on this as Almond Breeze barista blend is perfect for latte art and still delivers the same great taste.”
Almond Breeze Australia and New Zealand country director Mike McNulty said Australians love coffee and many are looking for a dairy-free alternative.
“We worked with some of the best baristas in the country for over a year to answer that need. The response has been overwhelming and what way to celebrate than with a colourful coffee,” he said.
Almond Breeze also hosts a nationwide competition that challenges baristas to make the most creative latte art using Almond Milk.
