The brighter, fruit-forward notes of light roasts fare a little better in almond drink than soy drink. That being said, the watery, and, in some cases, the chalky, texture of the almond drink can make for a less satisfying drinking experience.
Almond drink has the sweetest profile out of the most plant-based drink, making it trickier to pair with coffee, but not for us at al Bacio Coffee & Co.
The sweetness balances coffees that are inherently ripe and juicy, like coffees grown in East Africa, are the best match.
In general, almond drink is best paired with delicate coffees.
Just be wary of the sugar content of some almond drink brands, since too much sweetness will overpower any coffee.
