This Spanish Latte Gets an Oatstanding Twist
And it could very well be your new morning habit.
(SPOT.ph) If you like your coffee on the sweet side, you might be inclined to get a cup of Vietnamese latte or Spanish latte for your daily dose of caffeine. Online seller Morning Habit’s take on the latter brings the familiar comfort of Spanish latte with a little twist. Meet their best-selling Oat Spanish Latte (P240), which has an almost-velvety blend of sweetened milk and oat milk lending a layered creaminess to the single-origin Brazil Arabica coffee base.
It was a conscious choice for the fairly new coffee purveyor to use oat milk in their ready-to-drink coffee line, explains Alyssa Rellosa, who handles Morning Habit’s business development. In 2019, their family discovered that everyone in their family is intolerant to dairy mlk. In their search for plant-based alternatives, they stumbled upon an oat milk product called Oatly in quarantine and enjoyed the taste. Relosa says, “From our previous experiences, plant-based drinks usually do not taste like the real dairy milk, but with [Oatly] you would not even notice the difference.”
Aside from the Oat Spanish Latte (which also has a regular dairy-milk variant), another bestseller is the Cold Brew No. 20 (P140), a strong, dark chocolate blend with coffee beans sourced from Bukidnon and Benguet. There’s also the lighter Cold Brew No. 10 (P140), made from single-origin Ethiopia Sidamo beans. Both cold-brew variants are steeped for 24 hours and are said to be 70% less acidic than normal coffee.
They also have the usual drinks like Americano (P120) and Latte (P140) as well as coffee beans if you prefer making your own cup: Choose from the fruity Beans No. 10 (P500/250 grams, P950/500 grams); the blend that started it all, Beans No. 20 (P380/250 grams, P740/500 grams); and Beans No. 30 (P500/250 grams, P950/500 grams), single-origin Brazil Machado beans.
