Califia Farms Café Oat for Baristas Blend
I’ve tried almost every almond, oat, and plant-based alternative out there and the best one I’ve found is Califia Farms Oat Barista Blend. It’s kosher, vegan, non-GMO, gluten free, and dairy free but that’s not what makes it great. It’s the right blend of creamy and flavor without being too sweet or ruining the beverage with a stevia aftertaste. A dash of it will cloud into the beverage and evenly disperse itself like a milk product, which is a weird esoteric mouthfeel where not all non-dairy products succeed.
Best part is you can buy it in bulk from Costcounder the Califia Farms Café Oat store-specific packaging. It comes in those large quart cartons that chicken broth comes in. No more remembering where you got that last non-descript quart-sized Tetra Pak , you can have a garage full of shelf stable non-dairy milk-like beverage that “foams well”. If bulk is not your thing, you can buy the regular Oat Barista Blend at Whole Foods or other national grocers.
