Califia Farms, a plant-based beverage company, announced two new additions to its line of Barista Blends: Mushroom Oat Barista Blend and Hemp Barista Blend. The new barista-tested plant milks double as creamers and offer even more variety to the morning coffee ritual while delivering on functional ingredients – which was named the most important quality in plant-based alternative milks and creamers by 1 in 5 coffee drinkers in new research conducted by OnePoll on behalf of Califia Farms.1
The survey also revealed that consumers' appetite for coffee experimentation has grown in the last year, with 42% of coffee drinkers recreating their favorite coffee drinks at home and 1 in 3 trying their hand at creating latte art during the pandemic. The new Barista Blends, which were developed with professional baristas, steam and foam beautifully without sacrificing taste or quality, and offer more ways to enjoy café-inspired coffee at home. They join Califia's line of Barista Blend beverages, including Oat Barista Blend, Almond Barista Blend and Unsweetened Almond Barista Blend.
Mushroom Oat Barista Blend is the latest addition to Califia's extensive portfolio of oat milks and creamers. With oat milk sales up 351% from a year ago,2 Califia Farms continues to add new products to its line to meet the growing consumer demand.
Mushroom Oat Barista Blend and Hemp Barista Blend are available at national retailers, including Whole Foods, and have an SRP of $5.99.
