Known for its innovative plant-based beverages in distinctive curvy bottles, Los Angeles-based Califia Farms announced its latest plant-based innovation: shelf-stable Nitro Draft Lattes with Oatmilk in a can. The energy-boosting beverage joins the brand’s line of non-dairy Cold Brew Coffees with Almondmilk and Coconut Cream.
As with all Califia Farms coffee, it is made with 100 percent premium Arabica Beans sourced via Direct Trade from partners in South and Central America and East Africa, with complete transparency across the entire blockchain-enabled supply chain, the company says. The premium beans are then roasted at the Califia Coffee Co. Lab in Los Angeles.
“Direct Trade means that we pay as much attention to the quality of the beans as to the socioeconomic impact when sourcing them. It not only results in richer, better tasting coffee, but also in strong supplier partnerships that benefit everyone,” said Brian Lovejoy, general manager of coffee at Califia Farms, in a statement. “We combine these premium beans with our new Oatmilk, a delicious partner for coffee, which froths beautifully. The product is made even creamier with the nitrogen widget technology, resulting in a unique cold brew experience that keeps you ‘feel good’ energized all day.”
The new self-stable Nitro Draft Lattes are available in four flavors: Black & White, XX Espresso, Salted Caramel and Mocha. All varieties are made with allergen-friendly, gluten-free Oatmilk. It is non-GMO, kosher and vegan and is free of nuts, allergens, soy, gluten, carrageenan, BPA, dairy and preservatives. While best served cold, it does not need to be refrigerated until opened.
The shelf-stable 7-ounce Nitro Draft Lattes are available for $2.99 for a can on CalifiaFarms.com, Amazon.com and in core U.S. markets. A broader roll out including eCommerce, convenience and grocery store partners will continue through the end of the year.
