Updated October 2022! You would be hard-pressed to find a more worldly dairy-free beverage maker than Koita. The company was launched several years ago by an American living in the UAE, but he opted to produce his premium products in Italy. Koita Plant-Based Milk is now sold in 10 countries in the Middle East and Asia, and has finally arrived in the U.S. You can buy it in seven varieties, made with almond, coconut, oat, rice, and/or soy.
Koita Plant-Based Milk is How Italians do Dairy-Free Beverages
Koita Plant-Based Milk is still made in Italy, ethically sourced ingredients from the fertile lands of the Italian Alps. And as mentioned above, this beverage line offers a little something for everyone. It even includes soy milk made by Italia baristas specifically for steaming and frothing.
