    We tend to only have soya milk at home. (We're not totally non dairy, risotto needs butter and toast needs melted cheese :smile:). It's totally fine in tea but it can seperate and curdle when used in coffee xx(.

    What I don't understand is how places like Pret a manager, Costa and (shudder) Starbucks manage to do soya milk coffees without this happening. I've tried heating the soya milk, putting the milk into the cup first and trying different brands of soya and coffee beans but the problem still happens.

    Anyone any ideas?

    A former colleague of mine had GranoVita soya milk in his coffee, and I don't remember it curdling. He used a different sort on his cereal (alpro).
    This was the strongest coffee known to humanity, from a filter machine rather than instant

    I like Soya milk on its own (not many do!) but it's gross in coffee or tea!

    In coffee shops the soya milk is heated with steam so it doesn't curdle, Soya Latte is pretty nice actually. I use Soya milk in porridge too and it is nice. Milk has to be normal milk and I generally have full milk at home with filter coffee.

    Black coffee. No sugar. Anything else is wrong.

    I'm slightly richer from not wasting money on unnecessary milk and sugar. I like your thinking on the cold showers - I could be saving even more from not heating my water:biggrin:.

    I have had bad experiences with soya milk in tea as well as coffee. I used to share a house with someone who drank soya milk and I always assumed it separated out when it was a few days old - i.e. rather like cow's milk going off.

    This put me off soya milk for years, but I have to say someone recently snuck some into a cup of tea they made for me, and I didn't notice the difference.

    The truth!

    Love soya milk on cereal but I can't get used to it in my porridge.

    I have recently been advised to remove dairy products from my diet. I find soya milk is better than cows' milk in porridge and I have successfully made cheese sauce with it. Coffee and tea are black in our house - thanks to sour milk in boarding school all those years ago!

    I have been known to put baby Leo's left-over formula into my coffee if we've run out of milk...
