Why ROA's m*lk?
If you’ve stumbled upon this page, you probably want to know more about why we believe in our oat m*lk. So where do we start? When used in coffee it responds to the relatively sour coffee beans just like traditional cow’s milk does - or maybe even better. This means that it doesn't break down and creates a fluffy layer of foam. Great for latté art. But just because we call our oat m*lk called Barista does not mean we do not love it in a smoothie, overnight oats, our morning cruesli, a milkshake, an espresso martini, or just by itself. On the contrary, we believe ROA Barista handles the spotlight pretty well on its own. The oat m*lk has a rich and balanced oat taste with natural sweetness and no added sugar while giving you that smooth mouthfeel of traditional milk.
But these aren't the only advantages of drinking our oat m*lk. To give you an overview, we have listed ten relevant benefits and findings below.
