Silk® Enters the Coffee Category, Introduces New Plant-Based, Ready-To-Drink Lattes

Dairy-free Espresso and Mocha Lattes blend almondmilk and oatmilk for a creamy, bold, balanced taste




Broomfield, CO – [Feb. 18, 2020] – Silk®, America’s No. 1 plant-based beverage brand, is entering the ready-to-drink coffee market with expertly crafted, dairy-free lattes that bring the coffeehouse experience to your fridge.

Silk Lattes blend the smoothness of almondmilk with creamy oatmilk to create a rich, full-bodied latte that’s so good, you won’t miss the “moo.” Both the Espresso and Mocha flavors blend high-quality, cold-brew Arabica coffee with rich espresso for a clean, sophisticated flavor. The Mocha Latte mixes three different types of cocoa to ensure a delicious and balanced chocolate flavor.

“Skip the line, chatter and spotty Wi-Fi with Silk Lattes—the perfect way to savor a coffeehouse-quality latte from the comfort of your home,” said David Robinson, senior brand manager for Silk. “Silk is excited to enter the coffee category with a dairy-free and hassle-free option that brings barista-quality coffee into your home, minus the upcharge.”

Great Latte Taste Without the Waste
As part of the brand’s commitment to sustainability, Silk Lattes come in a premium recyclable plant-based bottle, with at least 80% of its material made from renewable sugarcane. The coffee in Silk Almond & Oat Lattes is grown by UTZ Certified farmers. UTZ is a label and program for sustainable farming. Silk Lattes are also Non-GMO Project Verified.
