    Pura Cafe - Specialty Foaming Milk for the Perfect

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    What: Pura Cafe - Specialty Foaming Milk for the Perfect Coffee
    Date: March 2005
    Size: 1 litre
    Price: $1.89
    Where: Safeway, Geelong *West



    Nutrition Information: (per 100ml)
    Energy: 296kj (71Cal)
    Protein: 4.2g
    Fat - Total: 3.3g
    Fat - Saturated: 2.1g
    Carbohydrate - Total: 6g
    Carbohydrate - Sugars: 6g
    Sodium: 51mg
    Calcium: 148mg

    Notes:
    One side of the carton had a good plug for the Coffee Academy in Melbourne



    The glass is 150mm high and holds 450ml.
    250ml of milk was measured into a 600ml jug.
    Milk starting temperature was 4c (degrees celcius).
    Steamed using my Boema it was stretched to 40c and then the steam wand was pushed deeper to heat the milk to 65c.

    Poured into the tall glasses, this produced 95mm of milk and 55mm of foam which dissipated very slowly (more than 80% was there 20 minutes later)

    Yeah, good point Mal, that might be the trick ???
    (but I WILL NOT put egg white in my coffee) :D

    I plan on doing some tests on the weekend of how these go in a jug.... (tis a little late at night now). And when I get through this fridge full Ill go back and look for more brands including the more "normal" milks.

    Others are more than welcome to post their experiences or fav milks in our new "milk library". ::)

    Hi Andy,

    Interesting to see that this milk has slightly less fat than standard milk but a lot more sugar. Maybe the sugar helps to suppport the foam once generated, a la meringue?

    Hey all!

    Used to use this milk religiously, but never really liked the taste...personal preference I suppose.

    I voted great for Farmhouse though, best results I have obtained from any milk.

    Pity the Mrs insists we drink REV >:(

    But have managed to get a reasonable microfoam from this too! :D

    But then again, I do have a thermoblock :( :(

    Ive tried this, as well as the Dairy Farmers equivalent called Crema, and Crema is much better. (See my post under Crema).
    Pura Cafe does froth up well, but it does not provide a terribly thick or sweet foam (unlike Dairy Farmers Crema, which does).
    Personally, I think ordinary full cream milk does just as good a job, if not slightly better job, than Cafe
