Consumer research has shown that people want a lot from their dairy-free creamer. It should work as a plant milk in cereal or recipes, give coffee a rich but smooth finish, steam and foam with ease, and provide unique nutritional benefits. Califia Farms Barista Blends aim to satisfy each of these desires with a range of varieties and on-trend ingredients.
Califia launched their classic Oat barista blend a few years ago, and followed it up with both unsweetened and lightly sweetened Almond barista blends. This year, they’ve released a revolutionary Mushroom Oat barista that’s infused with certified organic mushroom extracts (3000 mg of whole cordyceps and 2400 mg of lion’s mane mushrooms). And they have a new Hemp barista blend that’s naturally rich in omega 3 fatty acids (850mg of ALA per glass). Both new options are also fortified with a wallop of dairy-free calcium.
