8 Reasons Why JOI is a Better Almond Milk Alternative for Coffee Shops and Cafés
For coffee shop and café owners, customers come first. You’re in the business of relationships—your regulars come to your shop again and again because they know you, and they know you’ll make the specific, delicious coffee or tea beverage they crave, just the way they like it (with a side of friendly convo, of course).
For lots of customers, their pick-me-up of choice involves almond milk. And whether they prefer almond milk for health, dietary, or simply taste preferences, you want to give them the most delicious option out there—without breaking the bank or driving you and your employees nuts (see what we did there?) with prep work.
That’s exactly why so many craft coffee shops and cafés have decided to partner with JOI for delicious, fresh and easily made-in-house almond milk customers are raving about.
Here are eight reasons why café owners and baristas love almond milk made with JOI:
1. JOI provides the health benefits customers are looking for in a nut milk
JOI is made from Just One Ingredient: 100% almonds. Your customers will benefit from the nutrition of the whole nut—not just its juices. Plus, no fillers, no preservatives, and only the sweeteners you (or your customers) choose to add. Ever.
2. JOI is shelf stable and space-saving
Tired of filling up that valuable fridge space with cartons or bottles of perishable almond milk? Sick of the back room being stuffed with cartons of the no-refrigeration-required variety (and all the fillers that keep them that way)? One 8-pound pail of JOI makes up to 60 quarts of fresh almond milk on demand, without dominating your cold storage or pantry shelves. Marie Kondo approves.
3. JOI is cost-effective
Did you catch that last bit about one pail making 60 quarts of fresh almond milk? Yeah, talk to your current supplier, make a Costco run, or just check the price tag at your local grocery store. Ounce for ounce, almond milk made with JOI is comparable to conventional almond milk brands. And unlike those brands, you get to offer a high quality, made-in-house product that your customers will love.
4. JOI can be customized to work for you
Your customers love your shop because of your unique recipes—and those tasty house specialties require specific ingredients! JOI is made on-demand by YOU and your baristas, so you can make it just the way you and your customers like. Need it creamier? No problem, just add an extra scoop. A little sweeter? Toss in some vanilla or maple syrup. Want to get really nutty? Blend with coconut water. The possibilities are endless, and you can experiment until you find the perfect secret formula your customers will be legitimately hooked on.
5. JOI froths and foams better than conventional almond milks
How frustrated have you gotten trying to do your signature latte art with standard almond milk? Give it a shot with almond milk made with JOI. Our almond milk froths and foams like no other product you’ve tried for creamy, delicious, and highly Instagrammable coffee and tea drinks.
6. JOI gives you real almond milk in a fraction of the time
Maybe you’re already sick of the fillers and sweeteners in conventional almond milks and have already turned to making your own in-house. Good for you, but do you have time for anything else? JOI gives you all the taste and health benefits of homemade almond milk, without any of the time-intensive soaking or straining, or expensive bulk almond orders. Just scoop, blend, and enJOI in seconds—quick and easy.
7. JOI can be used in smoothies, baked goods, sauces, and more
Yes, almond milk made with JOI is easy, tasty, and frothy for coffee and tea drinks, but this nutbase isn’t a one trick pony. Add a scoop or two along with water and your favorite smoothie ingredients for a fresh protein punch; use JOI as a healthy fat and binding agent in delicious healthier baked goods; or get creative with vegan sauces like this creamy ranch. Tag us on Instagram to share your creations when you let your inner chef run wild.
8. JOI is just plain good
First and foremost, your customers want an almond milk that tastes delicious in their favorite beverage. JOI isn’t watered down or overly sweet. It provides that real, nutty flavor coffee and tea connoisseurs love. So, put your current conventional almond milk of choice up against homemade, 100% almond milk made with JOI—we know how we’ll place our bet.
