New York-based speciality coffee roaster Joe Coffee has partnered with Chilean food tech company NotCo to replace its almond milk with NotCo’s NotMilk Barista plant-based milk.
NotCo said the move marks its first coffee house partnership for NotMilk Barista in the US.
The ultra-creamy NotMilk Barista is being used at Joe Coffee’s locations across New York City in place of almond milk on the menus.
NotCo said that the new plant-based milk is made with a blend of chickpeas and oats. It provides a low-sugar option and a creamier and frothier plant-based alternative for customers to elevate their Joe Coffee pick-me-up.
The foamable, ultra-smooth NotMilk Barista is said to perform well in hot and cold foaming. It also has a firm hold on latte art.
NotCo CEO and founder Matias Muchnick said: “NotMilk Barista allows plant-based coffee lovers the opportunity to enjoy the full, frothy latte experience without compromising on taste, look, feel and functionality.
