There's nothing like a great cup of coffee or latte for your morning ritual or afternoon pick me up. Ok - tea drinkers may have a point, but that's a whole different set of posts. We're talking about caffeine pay out here. So, in an attempt to find a milk alternative we'll be experimenting from time to time with different milk like options. Others have done a great job at comparing them all at once - so if you need to know quickly or like to read the last chapter first, check out The Milk Chronicles or From Scratch.
For consistency (this is important science) and convenience we'll be using a Nespresso machine and capsules with an Aeroccino frother.
First up - Coconut Milk. Right off the bat - the froth is nonexistent. So if froth is important to you, bye bye coconut milk. The taste is decent enough and it certainly is creamy. But it definitely has a taste and by the end of the cup dairy was being longed for. One major plus however was that the coconut milk made very good strawberry milk and amazing rice pudding! Maybe we'll try almond milk next.
