TOBY’S ESTATE PARTNERS WITH CALIFIA FARMS TO MEET NEW OAT MILK DEMAND

More Australians than ever before are choosing plant milk over dairy, but there’s one in particular that’s fast becoming the new favourite for coffee – oat milk. It’s become so popular as a plant-based alternative to cow’s milk that specialty coffee roasters, Toby’s Estate, have risen to demand and now teamed up with Califia Farms to offer premium oat milk to their café customers nationwide. 
“With compelling health, ethical and environmental benefits it’s no wonder more people are turning to plant-based diets. When it comes to coffee, they’re now looking for more options than just soy and almond and so we knew we had to listen to our customers,” said Jody Leslie, Toby’s Estate General Manager.
After a wildly successful launch in the US, Califia Farms only recently launched their new Oat Barista Blend here in Australia and now Toby’s Estate is the first large specialty coffee roaster who will soon be distributing it to their extensive café network across Australia, starting with NSW.
 “We found the perfect product in Califia Farms Oat Barista Blend because it’s so creamy and delicious, yet importantly doesn’t overtake the flavour of our coffee. It’s ideal for baristas too because it’s easy to stretch, has a smooth pour and it doesn’t split. It is very close to how full fat milk performs,” added Jody.
 According to Dan Kaplan, National Business Manager for Califia Farms Australia, in the US oat milk is the #2 dairy alternative in coffee shops after almond milk and it looks like Australia is headed in the same direction.
“Oat milk is not only dairy free and not a nut milk, but it’s free from soy and made from a sustainable grain, which makes it a very appealing option for consumers. When you combine that with great taste and functionality, it’s easy to see why it’s becoming so popular in cafés,” said Dan.
Califia’s Oat Barista Blend is made from whole rolled oats and is completely unsweetened with no added sugar, gums, dairy or soy. It also has half the amount of natural sugar than other oat milk brands and was crafted by baristas, for baristas.
“We’re so proud of our oat milk and are really excited to now have Toby’s Estate on board so that more Australians can fall in love with Califia’s Oat Barista Blend,” Dan added.
So next time you head into a Toby’s Estate café for a coffee, be sure to make yours a Califia Farms oat milk latte!
Califia Farms Oat Barista Blend is best refrigerated prior to use and is available now for the Australian barista community. For more info visit: califiafarms.com. To learn more about Toby’s Estate visit: tobysestate.com.au.
