Many coffee drinkers add some form of milk, creamer, or coffee whitener to their cup. In Australia, only about 1 in 8 (12%) coffees sold are long blacks or espressos that don’t add anything to the brew. It is much more common to hear the barista shouting orders for a latte or flat white. In fact, more than half of all coffee sales in Australia come from those two orders as 1 in 3 (33%) coffees are lattes and 1 in 4 (24%) are flat whites.
If you’re making your own cuppa in the morning at home, especially when making an instant coffee, you might turn to coffee whitener instead of milk or cream. Coffee whitener is also often found in workplaces, at events, or in hotels due to the convenience and long shelf life. For customers avoiding dairy or who are lactose intolerant, it is a great substitute for milk as a non-dairy alternative.
