Bakersfield, Calif. – After last year’s success at Natural Products Expo West, Califia Farms’ 2014 booth will showcase the Company’s latest innovation in single serve offerings of its award-winning Iced Coffee with Almondmilk. The new dairy-free and soy-free Cold Brewed Iced Coffee 10.5 ounce single serve line comes in three exotic and on-trend flavors: Salted Caramel, XX Espresso, and Cocoa Noir. After Califia’s Iced Coffees won multiple natural products’ awards and national distribution, the Company saw a prime opportunity to bring its one-of-a-kind Cold Brewed Iced Coffee with Almondmilk line to retailers’ grab-n-go with this exciting line extension. “Until our Iced Coffees came along, a great-tasting non-dairy ready-to-drink Iced Coffee didn’t exist,” said Greg Steltenpohl, CEO of Califia Farms. “We spent a lot of time perfecting these new flavors to bring even more excitement to the line. These richer flavor notes are perfectly balanced with our lighter Almondmilk profile. Our basic tenet here at Califia is that non-dairy drinkers shouldn’t have to compromise. Many big coffee chains have been slow to jump on the Almondmilk train so we had to take matters into our own hands and make a better-tasting solution available for on-the-go energy.”
The combination of Rainforest Alliance Certified™ coffee, Califia’s creamy, smooth Almondmilk, and fresh new flavors in darker chocolate and salted caramel make this product line a standout, especially in a suitable distinct package that communicates the premium qualities of the product.
The single serve products proudly display the Non-GMO Project Verified seal on their PET, BPA-FREE bottle. Like their multi-serve versions, the new Iced Coffees are dairy-free, soy-free, lactose-free, gluten-free, and guilt-free. While typical almondmilks are processed from roasted almonds, Califia Farms Almondmilk is made from whole blanched (not roasted) California almonds, resulting in a more authentic dairy taste with higher quality nutritionals, and a perfect compliment to the less acidic cold brewed coffee. The Iced Coffees retail at $2.49 per 10.5 ounce bottle and have already seen high volume growth after regional Whole Foods Market introductions.
