  • Dairy Farmers "Crema" milk

    In Sydney you can get special "Crema" milk for frothing. It costs more and form my experience, I am not sure if it froths better, but I do notice that some cafes use it.

    What are CSers opinions on this special purpose milk. Is it a marketing ploy or a real advance in Latte Technology?

    I was getting it for free and find no real discernable diff to the normal full cream, Im back on normal milk now. But with the new balls n all commercial Im working on might be different.

      Ive noticed lately that I can taste the difference in the milk as much as the difference in the coffee. Ive also noticed most of my fave cafes use crema milk.

        I use it at work and I personally find that it is consistently better than just plain milk, which out here seems to vary a bit in quality at times.

          Id agree with that... I just cant justify the price though... and Wollies /\/Aldi Lite Milk is constantly consistent for me..

            I use Procal and the agent offered me Procal frothy, same price as the regular. I found it harder to control than the regular one, and found it tasted different (family didnt like it at all), so now I am back to the regular stuff, which is a dream to use.

              Marcstolk, how much more is it than regular Dairy Farmers do you find? At work, we get it at the same price for a regular 2 litre milk - of course, that is direct from the milko.

                I use unhomogenised milk. There are a few brands in Adelaide and they taste better. I really notice the difference between homogenised and unhomogenised milk.

                The unhomogenised is sweeter in flavour (if that makes sense).

                  I can only get it in the 1ltr, for approx $2.05 per ltr...

                  I buy the Wollies Lite 3ltr for $3.50 and is consistently good ... Hard to justify the Crema... similarly priced as the regular DF product which is just a rip off!.

                  Another product Id use if it wasnt a rip off is the Pure Tone (Yellow Labeled Milk)

                  Would be interesting to know how much you buy the Crema for...

                    When I see the next milk invoice, Ill be sure to remember the price for you! Its been a while since I saw one and the way milk prices seem to be climbing (like everything else!) Id better check first!

                      we get the crema cheaper than regular dairy farmers. last invoice was $2.08 for 2L Crema

                        Thats a great price!!! Coles and woolies charge more than that for their own 2L milks. $2.38 if i remember correctly...

                            Were paying 3.29 for both regular and Crema. How on earth can you guys possibly be getting it for that price!?

                            I think I mentioned elsewhere that milk is getting expensive...that is actually a dreadful disparity. Even if we are paying more for freight out in the middle of no where... : >

                              Fontana (NZ dairy multi-nat) estimates a 20% increase in milk prices by the end of the year due to drought related production costs. I use Barambah Organics here in Brissy - excellent taste & consistently fantastic texturing (skim tastes like full cream, but only .1% fat!). But, its pricey ($3.20 fc/$3.45skim). Purely on grounds of bottom line, Im considering changing to Mooloo Mountain (Parmalat owned) - its taste & micro-foamability is darn close to Barambah, but only about $1.80 for 2litres. Only drawback, they dont do a skim line. As for Crema milk on the market, Ive tried it and frankly wasnt bowled over - marketing it is a barista specific milk is, well, just marketing!
