    Please advice on Full Cream Milk and Skinny Milk

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Hi all,

    Business had been bad, and at some point we needed to use Coles Milk to cut cost. To be honest, I dont like it at all. Those Coles milks somehow makes me feel that the coffee taste more watery than it suppose to (please correct me if im wrong).

    Just not long ago, Id been given authority to choose my own supplier and one of them to get my own milk. Business has been slightly better and Ive decided to dump these Coles Milks. Bonsoy is my choice for soy now ;), even though its more expensive but the quality and the taste superiority far exceed the price difference. It is shown in our sales statistic quite significantly for this last few weeks.

    The problem is for Full Cream and Skinny Milk. I do prefer to get 0% fat for skinny. In my opinion, if u want skinny milk why not go all the way, rather than 2% fat. There are so many brands out there, Ive been experimenting with Paul Smarter White and some other Pauls. The result is I like Pauls, the milk has stable froth and makes coffee taste better.

    For those who had been using Pura and Paul, which one u think is better for coffee?

    Should I go for 0% or 2% skinny milk? :-/

    Please advice.

    Thanks.

    My personal opinion is you can get much better textured milk out of hilo than skinny milk.

    However, its really what the customers want. You could always ask your regulars which theyd prefer and use your poll to gauge which way you should go.

    If I was a regular at your cafe Id be happy that you guys cared about my opinion.


    As far as milk goes Bannister Downs is really popular over here in Western Australia for its quality:price ratio, but I dont know what the popular milk for baristas is over in that way. A2 is great but kind of the next step up.

    This is a good idea, I think will listen more to feedbacks. I kinda not paying too much attention to that. Anyway, I just realize that different parts of Australia have different popular brands of milk. I think because in my country big consumer products company dominate the market and dominate TV ads spaces as well, I assumed the same thing in Australia. :) I was wrong

    Have heard some comments about Pura that might make you think twice about using it, but have never personally experienced a problem with Pura milk.

    I have to have full cream, In North America cream is used more than milk in coffee, been looking for a suitable coffee cream for some time now, just found Pauls pure cream, pretty good as a treat not good for everyday too fattening.
