Instant Non-Dairy Coconut Lattes

Alpine Start's Coffee & Creamer Blend Makes a Dairy-Free Latte

— May 28, 2018 — Lifestyle
Dairy-free lattes and other vegan-friendly drinks used to be difficult to come by in some mainstream coffee shops, but growing interests in a plant-based diet has made these formerly specialty beverages much more widely available.

Away from the coffee shop, Alpine Start offers an upleveled instant coffee product in the form of a Coconut Creamer Latte. This product combines 100% Colombian Arabica coffee with a non-dairy coconut creamer, meaning that an instant latte can be made with just water and without filters and other equipment.

To improve upon the convenience that instant coffee already offers, it is common for some brands to offer two-in-one or three-in-one packs that combine coffee with creamer and sometimes sugar—now, a new wave of products is emerging with a focus on high-quality coffee and free-from creamers.

1. Growing Interest in Plant-based Beverages - Disruptive innovation opportunity: Develop new and unique plant-based beverage options that cater to the increasing demand.
2. Convenience of Instant Coffee - Disruptive innovation opportunity: Create convenient and portable instant coffee products that offer high-quality coffee without the need for additional equipment or ingredients.
3. Niche Market for Dairy-free Lattes - Disruptive innovation opportunity: Tap into the niche market of dairy-free lattes by creating innovative and flavorful options that cater to the vegan and lactose-intolerant consumer base.

3. Alternative Dairy Industry - Disruptive innovation opportunity: Capitalize on the growing demand for alternative dairy products by developing unique and tasty dairy-free creamer options that cater to coffee lovers.
