Oatly • Barista Edition Oatmilk
For baristas. An alternative to dairy milk that creates foam worthy of latte art.

I discovered Oatly at Chicago’s Intelligentsia. I decided to be dangerous with the recommendation of oat milk in my latte.. by a barista with a handlebar mustache. This is the first Barista Edition that I purchased for this review and I just got done going through the box gracefully gifted to me by Björn.

The taste of the milk is neutral and complements my coffees and teas. I appreciate a good foam in my latte and although the Barista Edition is *the* creamiest I’ve tried and produces *the most* velvety foam, I will be sticking with the regular Oatly because I get more for the price.

The original one is already creamy and has impressive foam (though not as velvety). I also use it in hot/cold chocolate, London fog, and banana berry smoothie a.k.a. crack.

In my opinion, Oatly is the current champion of plant-based milks. I was first introduced to Oatly in a coffee shop in Chicago while ordering a latte, not knowing what to expect, other than maybe a minor caffeine buzz. Turns out, I remember this coffee shop not for their coffee (which was great), but for my first time enjoying Oatly. I was instantly sold and it has since been my go-to milk for mixing in coffee.

I grew up drinking dairy milk. I am used to the taste and creaminess of dairy milk and it is one of the things that make producing plant-based milks so difficult. Oatly replicated the creaminess of dairy milk spectacularly, which is a huge win for me. The taste is addictive. I can easily pour a glass of Oatly by itself and enjoy it. It is naturally slightly sweet with only a hint of oat flavor.

I purchased Oatly regularly prior to learning about Ripple. Now, I alternate between the two milks.
