My name is Morag Halley and I purchased my first commercial machine to make my own perfect coffee at home in the mid 1990’s. I became a fan of coffee pods and set up my own company in 2006 and became a coffee pod supplier, beans and coffee machines. We then ventured out and became a premium Coffee Pod Supplier

I am a firm believer that, “Life’s too short to drink bad coffee”

Making coffee isn’t a one size fits all kind of activity – coffee beans and brewing methods can significantly vary. Milk is great for reducing coffee’s bitterness and strength, making it more palatable for those looking for milder coffee. Plus, with the right coffee and quality milk, you can enhance the coffee’s flavour, texture and body. If you’re looking for an extra delicious coffee experience, try a medium or dark roast coffee. Look out for tasting notes such as chocolate, nuts and sweet caramel; this combination of coffee and milk will make every sip

Dairy Milk

Coffee is one beverage where the quality of your finished product can be upgraded drastically by simply switching to a higher fat content in your milk. Baristas worldwide prefer full-fat milk for its ability to coat their coffee with a sweet and creamy flavour. If full-fat isn’t your thing, no problem, reduced fat will be just as effective and make for a coffee that stands out from the crowd. Milk is essential in coffee drinks like lattes, cappuccinos, and flat whites; why not give it much recognition? Try pairing high-fat content milk with coffee of darker roasts to experience coffee at its richest and creamiest.

Coffee with Condensed Milk

What is condensed milk?

Condensed milk is cows’ milk that is flash heated and 60% of the water removed. After it’s heated, a little salt and 40% to 50% sugar are added before it’s canned. Condensed milk has a creamy, rich and smooth taste, with a hint of vanilla and an almost similar flavour profile to caramel.

Condensed milk can be an excellent substitute for a coffee creamer, heavy cream or half-and-half cream.

  8. Serve and enjoy!
Store any leftover sweetened condensed milk in an airtight container in the fridge.

Milk Alternatives for Coffee

Almond milk

When it comes to coffee, almond milk is an increasingly popular non-dairy option due to its low-calorie content, which is rich in vitamins E and D.

At the same time, opinions regarding almond milk coffee still vary widely, with some finding the texture too watery or the flavour too nutty for their taste.

Still, it’s great to level up your coffee game if you like sweetened almond milk! While it isn’t the perfect coffee companion for everyone, an Americano made with medium or dark coffee – the nutty aroma from this blend adds a pleasant twist that gives any coffee an extra special touch!

One of the common issues you might encounter when mixing coffee and non-dairy milk is curdling, which can be avoided with dairy milk as it has a lower acidity, which helps prevent it from happening.

Buy barista almond milk; it will froth similar to dairy milk.

Almond Milk Iced Tea

  • Make a lucaffee expresso, and add three-quarters of a cup of almond milk.
  • Pour the espresso, maple syrup (sweetness to taste), and almond milk over ice and serve

Soya Milk

It’s been a staple in the dairy-free aisle for years and is valued for its typical non-distinctive taste – although it can be nutty, it happily mixes into coffee and gives it a smooth, creamy texture.

Similarly, because of this non-intrusive taste, cafes use soya milk in their lattes, too – after some practice, you can quickly become an at-home barista! However, be careful when heating the milk; if it gets too hot, it can potentially curdle, and you certainly don’t want any lumps in your coffee!

A little tip if you have a sweet tooth, choose sweetened soya milk

Rice Milk

We love rice and coffee, but not so much in the same cup! Rice milk will dilute your coffee as it’s watery and has quite a neutral flavour. Rice milk misses the creamy texture of cow’s milk and other alternatives, plus there is no frothy latte creation as rice milk doesn’t contain enough protein to create steam. It does tend to curdle slightly, but not as much as other dairy milk alternatives.

Rice milk is an ideal solution for those avoiding dairy and nuts, and you can still access delicious coffee at home thanks to our coffee pods available online today.

Oat Milk

Oat milk is made by blending ground oats with water and oil, resulting in a flavourful and creamy alternative with a hint of luxury of full-fat dairy milk.

The subtle oaty taste doesn’t overpower coffee drinks, and its smooth structure blends well with chai lattes, iced lattes, iced mochas and regular joe!

Oat Milk has a nice natural sweetness and reduces bitterness. On top of that, oat milk is low in fat, high in fibre, and rich in Vitamin B.

And getting frothy coffee has been challenging – you don’t need to warm the oat milk first – although you can if you want! So when your coffee cravings hit, and you want to buy coffee, order online! You won’t regret it.

There you have it - all the tips and tricks you need to find the best milk for your cup of coffee. With so many different options, it can take time to figure out where to start. Experiment with different types of milk and coffee until you find your favourite combination, and enjoy a delicious cup of coffee today.
