Which brand of plant milk is best in coffee?

From the comments we gathered in our initial Facebook poll, it would seem Oatly Barista is in the lead for the best brand of plant milk in coffee, closely followed by Koko, and Alpro Soya, although apparently Oatly Barista is best for frothing. Some commenters preferred oat and soya single cream in their coffee – sounds delicious!

Tips to prevent non-dairy milk curdling in coffee…

We have been given a few coffee-making tips from commenters, on how to stop milk alternatives curdling in your coffee…

  • Try warming the plant milk up before pouring (but not too much)
  • or let your coffee cool a little before introducing milk.
  • Plant milk is more likely to curdle in instant, than in filter coffee.
  • Make sure you shake the carton well before use.
  • If the problem persists, try a different coffee – rumour has it that the acidity of the bean can also affect separation.

Do you have any tips to share?

    Have just tried Ancient Grains Oat, Spelt and Buckwheat Dream.
    No added sugar according to label and the flavour is surprisingly good. Slightly sweet but not chalky .
    The first non-dairy plant milk I have tried that I actually like and will buy again.

    Rude health almond for coffee,
    Otherwise have to buy organic as every other brand adds extras which I’m trying to avoid.
