UK-based specialty coffee company Minor Figures is bringing a new kind of dairy alternative to US coffee drinkers with the launch of Minor Figures Oat M*lk and Organic Oat M*lk. This comes amid a heightened boom in milk alternatives, with oat milk variations becoming particularly popular. “Eating more plants is something we believe is crucial for the future health of our planet,” Stuart Forsyth, Co-Founder of Minor Figures, tells.
“We believe that our product is the best when it comes to coffee for a number of reasons, but our main focus its ability to let the full flavor profile of the espresso shot to come through and its ability to create a silky micro-foam when steamed. It’s this quality in Oat M*lk, plus its relatively low environmental impact, which makes it the clear choice of dairy alternative for coffee,” he explains.
Formulated by baristas specifically for use in coffee, the Oat M*lk is produced using natural ingredients with no added sugar and containing the same amount of calcium as dairy milk. Oat M*lk adds a natural sweetness, density and balance to a hot beverage without compromising the fidelity of the coffee. It can also be used for pouring latte art, as well as in tea, smoothies and with cereal, the company notes.
