What's your beef with skim milk?

We don't hate skim milk, but in the world of espresso, the fats in whole or 1% milk bring out flavors in the espresso that skim milk can't.

Skim milk was introduced into coffee culture as consumers became more and more concerned about calorie intake and dieting. Espresso drinks have been prepared with whole milk for centuries, and for good reason. When the fats in milk meet and mingle with our espresso, beautiful things happen. Next time you're in Urban Bean, let our barista make you a latte, cappuccino or macchiato. Sip your drink slowly, pay attention to the soft texture and sweet nutty flavor that the milk fats bring out of our perfectly prepared espresso.
