Califia Farms Introduces Cold Brewed, Dairy Free Iced Coffee
BAKERSFIELD, Calif. — Califia Farms introduces the first Cold Brewed, soy free/dairy free Ready-to-Drink Iced Coffee in three delicious flavors: Mocha, Café Latte, and Double Espresso – all made with Organic Fair Trade Coffee.
Califia Farms’ line of Pure Almondmilks has already swept the alternative dairy industry away with its iconic packaging and a cleaner, fresher taste. With the launch of Califia Farms Iced Coffee with Almondmilk, Califia is focusing their beverage innovation expertise on an entirely new category that could revolutionize the way Americans drink coffee.
“Our Iced Coffee with Almondmilk is an entirely new beverage experience,” said Greg Steltenpohl, CEO of Califia Farms. “This is not a cute quote – I honestly just can’t stop drinking it. For iced coffee applications, Cold Brew Coffee is a far superior approach to traditional java, and when combined with the creamy mouthfeel of our Almondmilk, the result is amazing.”
Califia Farms Iced Coffees only clock in at 80-100 calories per serving, and with no saturated fat, these drinks are the perfect indulgence…with all of the flavor, and none of the guilt. “That’s the beauty of Cold Brewed Coffee,” said Steltenpohl. “It’s 65 percent less acid than its heated counterpart, plus it’s brimming with antioxidants. But what’s best is that the flavor is fantastic.”
Califia Farms Almondmilk products are unique because of their cleaner, fresher taste and iconic packaging. While typical almondmilks are processed from roasted almonds, Califia Farms Almondmilk is made from whole blanched (not roasted) California almonds, resulting in a more vibrant taste with higher quality nutritionals. Califia Farms’ packaging is an instant classic, with a BPA-Free PET bottle reminiscent of an iconic glass milk bottle with a modern twist.
“Califia Farms is committed to taking care of the earth and its people through the sustainable production of healthy, all-natural beverages, with 100 percent recyclable packaging,” said Steltenpohl. The Company also makes a line of California Citrus Juices in 48 ounce carafes of refreshing Orange Juice, Lemonade, and Lemon-Limeade. After receiving verification from the Non-GMO Project, Califia Farms products are proudly boasting the Non-GMO Verified label. Califia Farms won the 2013 American Package Design Award from Graphic Design USA, and Veg News’ 2013 Best New Vegan Product Award. Califia Farms Almondmilk and Iced Coffee with Almondmilk are in the Dairy Section.

Califia Farms’ new plant is eco-friendly, energy efficient and repurposes more than 90 percent of its post-production byproduct.
