Posted Mon Feb 4, 2013, 11:00am Subject: Best Non-Dairy Milk to Steam
I did a post this morning on my coffee blog ( http://baristabanterblog.blogspot.com/2013/02/got-milk.html ) about steaming milk. Straus Family Creamery has carries organic barista milk, which is only lightly homogenized for better steaming. However, Straus only deals in real dairy, so I set out to find steamable dairy alternatives, because in my own barista experience soy milk caused me the most problems. It always clumps, or burns, or bubbles too much. Anyway, I found a barista-series soy milk by Esselon coffee, however I no longer have access to an espresso machine to test the stuff. I was wondering if anyone else here has had a shot at it, and if so what they think about it. Or perhaps someone has come across another barista-series non-dairy milk that steams to their satisfaction, if so, please comment and let me know!
