Dairy Spotlight: Santa Clara Cappuccino Milk



Lechita (meaning little milk) from Santa Clara is a small carton of ice cream-flavored milk for kids. However, this product line has a difference — along with the three regular flavors of chocolate, strawberry, and vanilla, Lechita also comes in capucchino [sic] flavor, once again reflecting the Mexican love of coffee.

Lechita is made from reduced fat milk and contains vitamins A, D3, B1, B6, and B12, calcium, iron, zinc, and folic acid to promote healthy growth in children.



About the Company
Santa Clara was founded in 1924 in Pachuca, the capital city of Hidalgo, beginning as a milk delivery business for homes in the area. The company expanded its line to the ice creams it is known for today in 1985, and the first store opened the following year. In 1988, Santa Clara further extended its line of products to yogurts and cheeses, and today produces a wide range of dairy products.

Starbucks Launching Cold Brew Coffee?


Cold Brew Coffee has become very trendy lately.  It was only a matter of time before Starbucks tossed their hat in the ring.  It would appear the time has come although it may be for a limited time only and offered to a limited geographic area.

A recent article from the Daily Mail talks about this limited roll out taking place in the Boston area.  Depending on how the launch goes I could see this becoming a staple product in all Starbucks locations, especially during the summer months when Cold Brew is more popular.

For more information on Cold Brew coffee check out our Cold Brew Coffee Trend Report.

Drink Spotlight: Farmers Union Low Fat Iced Coffee



FUIC was first launched commercially in 1977, but was originally discovered years before by a bunch of blokes at the Farmers Union Cooperative dairy, who were creating a special recipe for the Royal Adelaide Show.

Farmers Union Iced Coffee is proud of its heritage and has reached legendary, iconic status in South Australia. But the word has definitely spread since then. Our reputation of smooth tasting iced coffee and our no nonsense approach to life, has led to the rapid growth of Farmers Union in Tasmania, Victoria, New South Wales, Northern Territory and Queensland.

Delicious in taste, Farmers Union Iced Coffee is made with real coffee and reduced fat milk, available in a variety of pack sizes. It has become part of the daily routine for many, who enjoy it to start the day, at smoko with workmates or at lunch time to get through the rest of the day.

Farmers Union Iced Coffee has also been a long time supporter of Australian sport, proudly sponsoring numerous clubs and events including the Adelaide Crows and Port Adelaide Power AFL Clubs and the Clipsal 500 Adelaide.

Coffee Spotlight: Modern Times Coffee

Black House coffee beans
12oz of whole bean radness, roasted fresh at the brewery. A blend of Ethiopian Hambela (fruit, berries, brightness) and Sumatra Mandehling (cocoa, caramel, earth), this mocha java-style blend is the same coffee we use in Black House, our year round oatmeal coffee stout. Note: we ship coffee every Thursday to ensure freshness.

Rye Barrel-Aged Sulawesi Toraja
8oz of barrel-aged whole bean radness, roasted right here at the brewery. This batch of Rye Barrel-Aged Sulawesi Toraja offers up loads of barrel character, featuring an intense aroma & oodles of vanilla, oak, rye, & cocoa in the cup. Note: we ship coffee every Thursday to ensure freshness.

Red Wine Barrel-Aged Ethiopia Derar Ela
8oz of barrel-aged whole bean radness, roasted right here at the brewery. This batch of Red Wine Barrel-Aged Ethiopian Derar Ela is beautifully balanced, offering delicious citrus/peach flavor and aroma, with a lightly oaky/dark fruit finish from the barrel. Note: we ship coffee every Thursday to ensure freshness.

About the Company
We focus (non-monogamously) on aroma-driven, complex, flavorful, sessionish beers. We often brew hybrid styles, combining the features we like from established categories to create new, Island-Of-Doctor-Moreau-style mash-ups.

Fortunate Islands combines the mildly nutty malt body of a wheat beer with the intensely bright, citrusy hoppiness of a righteous IPA. Black House has the full-body, robust chocolatey flavor, and intense coffee aroma of its imperial counterparts, but packed into a 5.8% ABV package. Blazing World combines the subtly fruity qualities of a dry amber ale with the enormous hop-profile of an über-dank double IPA. Read More

Coffee Spotlight: Atomic Coffee Cold Brew

Single Origin Yirgacheffe Cold Brew Concentrate 500ml

With notes of jasmine, cocoa, stone fruit and blossom, plus a refined acidity and ginger sweetness, you could say Yirgacheffe is a bit of a star around these parts. Couple that with a cold brewing method that involves filtering ice cold water through its impressive body and you get a truly impressive coffee with many complex flavours shining through.

Our suggested serving ration is 2 parts coffee concentrate to 1 part mixer. Soda is a good mixer, so is sparkling mineral water. Milk is also a bit of a winner as well.
