Why should you enjoy real milk in your lattes?
Our farmers love providing a delicious and nutritious beverage everyone can enjoy. There are number of benefits to enjoying lattes made with cow’s milk.
It’s nutritious and delicious
Milk contains 9 essential nutrients, including bone-building calcium. Reach for a latte made with real milk and know you are getting nutrients you need each day with a tasty treat.
It’s fresh and local
Did you know that 97% of Michigan dairy farms are family owned? And milk in Michigan is local! Our dairy farmers produce more than enough milk to supply the state. It takes just 48 hours for milk to go from farm to processor to the store.
It’s the perfect pairing
Many baristas prefer to use real milk for specialty coffee drinks. It has the right taste, creamy texture, and foams consistently when steamed because of the eight grams of protein!
Dairy farmers use technology and best practices to foster a more sustainable future. In fact, to produce a gallon of milk, farmers are using 90% less land and 65% less water, with 67% less greenhouse gas emissions than they did 70 years ago. Farmers have pledged to further reduce GHG another 25% by 2025.
