  • Bring your own soy

    Was in Single Origin the other morning enjoying a delicious short black when a bloke walks in orders his coffee and gives the barista a carton of soy milk and asks him to use it in his flat white, funniest thing Id seen in a while, bringing your own favorite brand of soy to use in your bought coffee.

    Re: Bring your own soy

    When I was stuck on soy (back to real milk now), I used to supply my daily cafe with Bonsoy to use in my coffees. They werent interested in stocking it when I spoke to them about it (cost) but did offer to keep one in the fridge for me if I supplied it...so I supplied it.

    It was a great gesture on the cafes part and I was very thankful. I told them if anyone specifically asks about Bonsoy - to serve them some of mine.

    It seems like heaps of my local cafes are now stocking Bonsoy and prominently displaying it too. Finally, theyre working out that good soy is a must if it is to go in espresso...and draws in all the soy coffee drinkers in town.

        Same, on any given day we might have goats milk, rice milk, or non-standard soy milk in our fridges depending on which regulars we have come in. Like Pavoniboy said, its a great gesture, and it really doesnt cost the business anything other than a very small slot in the fridge.

        Though if I never smell goats milk being heated ever again itll be too soon  [smiley=rolleyes.gif]

          sounds like the kind of thing that would possibly set Gavin right off ... good on Shoji and the team though for putting the customer first!
