  • Longlife Milk

    Hi all

    I am shortly to travel to Vanuatu where I have been assured there is great coffee, that the house we are staying in has a coffee machine BUT that only longlife milk is available. So I am turning to the experts.........

    Does anyone have any advice about making coffee with longlife milk? Tips and tricks, brands to use/avoid? Any other advice for coffee in Vanuatu (Port Vila)?

    Please help (one member of our group is considering not coming due to potential bad coffee)

    Thanks
    Karen

    UHT milk is fine, I always have some in the cupboard as I live remote and sometimes Woolies runs out of fresh milk. I dont do anything different with it, stretches just like fresh milk and tastes fine in coffee.

        Are short / long blacks out of the question?

        A lot of people prefer non milk-based coffee in the tropics in any case.

          I use UHT as a backup and it works OK. The flavour is slightly different from fresh milk somewhat though, but not offensive at all. Just a slightly different taste.

            Living in Tonga the only milk we get is UHT and coffee is good - particularly with our locally grown beans.

              I use Devondale semi skim UHT at work, tastes fine, froths well and keeps for a quite a while in the fridge even after it's opened.

                I've used UHT milk and it's fine. The barista one that they sell is actually pretty good.

                  Hmm.. I guess this is Coffee Snobs, not milk snobs.

                    UHT is fine I'd say. I use lactose free milk for my milk drinks and that comes UHT.
                    Not as easy to stretch but still works well.

                        Just something you probably already know: make sure it's cold. Harder to make it work straight out of the cupboard.

                          I've used uht milk with no change from usual technique. Has to be cold for best results though

                            I would like Betsy a lactose free cow in the backyard. I don't have one so I use UHT lactose free milk. It is pretty good. It frothswell enough too.

                              Thanks. Have been leaving it in the fridge but I should probably put the jug in as well
