The Plant-Based Revolution

The NYCF Team
25 September 2018


Going nuts for plant-based alternatives? Silk Barista Collection is leading the charge. We look at how it’s helping baristas keep up-to-date and innovate as orders for almond, soy and coconut lattes pour in.
 
This year, for the first time, the new Silk Barista Collection’s full plant-based trilogy – soy, almond and coconut – will take to the Coffee Masters - New York stage, as 16 of the world’s top baristas battle it out for the win. But what’s this plant-based thing all about?
 



The plant-based switch
Wellbeing is the defining trend of the decade, and consumers are opting more and more for plant-based food. Dietary intolerance or not, people are eating more fruit, vegetables, pulses and nuts, in a bid to do good not only for their health, but the planet, too. Now, 30% of consumers prefer plant-based milks to dairy milk in coffee and tea, especially lattes. No surprise, then, that there’s been a rise in demand for plant-based products out of home, with an increasingly impressive range available, and it’s quickly becoming easier to eat and drink out without having to compromise.
 

 
Supporting baristas
With vegan brunches, rainbow health lattes, and plant-based alternatives on the chalkboard, baristas are seeking innovative, high-quality products to match the switch. Silk are market-leaders in providing plant-based consumers with extensive home product ranges, but they are now keeping baristas well-stocked, too. Silk Barista Collection launched to support baristas so that they can offer consumers the luxury of choice.
 
Every great barista needs high-performance products; the specially crafted plant-based collection is built for heat to create velvety foam in specialty coffees (latte art specialists and Instagrammers, take note).  It’s natural flavour means that consumers can get all the taste they’re looking for without the need for lashings of syrups and sugar. What’s more? It’s Non-GMO Project Verified and Certified Vegan.
