Milkadamia • Barista Latte Da Macadamia Milk
For baristas. An alternative to dairy milk that creates foam worthy of latte art.

The barista-style plant-based milk all foamed up very well and so did Milkadamia Latte Da Barista. It poured thinner than the oat or almond milk and added sweetness to my coffee. However, with hot and cold chocolate drinks, the creaminess was made up by the rich chocolate. I have tasted more neutral plant-based milk, so while there is a slight flavor note, it isn’t an off-putting one. I preferred it when paired with chocolate since it’s a stronger-tasting drink and I get a thick foam. I won’t be a frequent customer mainly because it has a bit of sugar added to it (1.75g/serving) and because there are creamier options available to me at a lower price.

Was looking forward to trying this milk for a while now. I haven’t tried milk created with macadamia nuts so I was quite excited. It’s good to know that this product contains 50% more calcium than cow’s milk. That’s awesome! This milk blended well (no specs or residue at all, perfect) and the taste was neutral enough where the taste of the coffee came right through. The consistency is between thin and mid-creamy. The milk is slightly sweetened, however, it does not taste overpoweringly sweet. I couldn’t really get this milk to froth with my handheld frother. I later noticed that the milk is “created for use with a steam wand (not milk frother)”. If anyone has a steam wand, I’d love to know how this turns out for you.
