As the popularity of almond milk and coffee increases, Califia Cold Brew Coffee blends are a welcome addition to millennial-minded consumers who are looking for simpler, cleaner foods with a lower environmental impact. All of Califia’s products are 100 per cent plant based, low in sugar, dairy free, soy free, gluten-free, non-GMO and vegan.
Cold brew coffee has revolutionised the coffee business. Cold brew is the art of extracting caffeine from a coffee bean over 12 to 24 hours to taste smooth, round and lush, without the bitter acids that come from hot brewing. Once the coffee is steeped, it can be drunk as is, or in Califia’s case, mixed with almond milk.
The Cold Brew Coffees add to the product range offering of multi-serve almond milk product offerings in Australia including Unsweetened Almond milk (750mL) and Unsweetened Vanilla Almond milk (750mL).
Califia Farms said 80 per cent of the world’s supply of almonds come from California. While many companies in Australia and around the world import almond paste from California and make their beverages from reconstituted paste, Califia’s secret to fresh and delicious almond milk is starting with whole blanched almonds and grinding them into a fine meal, an artisanal process that makes its products creamier, with a less bitter taste.
Califia Farm’s cold brew range of coffees have reduced sugar intake with an average gram of sugar per 100ml sold is 2.8 per cent, significantly lower than 70 per cent of most competitors.
The highest dose of caffeine in the range is the Triple Shot Cold Brew Coffee 310ml. Each bottle has 170mg of caffeine and 3.2g of sugar per 100ml to ensure you finish the day with energy. It is sold at RRP $3.30.
The Cocoa Noir 310mL, is perfect for dark chocolate lovers who need a dose of caffeine with a hint of sweetness.

It is sold at RRP $3.30.
Califia’s Double Espresso 750mL has double the dose of caffeine to pick one up from the 3pm slump. Each bottle has 150mg of caffeine and 4.2g of sugar per 100ml. It is sold at RRP $5.00.
