‘Super Milk’ Drives the Long Lines at Your Favorite Coffee Shop
The next time you order a latte, ask if the milk is super.
Super milk, sometimes called barista milk, has more protein than the regular product, and it is extra fatty and extra creamy. What’s more, it produces a microfoam with an exceptional porcelain sheen — excellent for latte art.
Producers like Straus Family Creamery began making the extra rich milk just in the last year as coffee shops compete for the best tasting cappuccinos. It’s still a fairly underground product. You’re unlikely to find it at the big national chains or a grocery store, but stumble into the right local joint and you could be in for a creamy treat.
