Tasting on its own, my wife said it's the best fresh milk she had ever tasted (very creamy, not sweet) she does have high standards for her fresh milk, drinking from a young age.
Brewed a cuppa and added the frothed milk to taste. My opinion, this is really fresh milk, you can even taste the rawness of the milk within the latte.

So questions is, to the latte/cappuccino milk based espresso lovers out there, would you guys prefer your coffee with a bit of "raw" aftertaste?

I'm looking for a "weaker" milk for use with more delicate coffees - ethiopians, geishas etc. Curious if it would be more suitable
The "raw" you're describing sounds like the milk taste would be stronger?

By weaker you mean the drinker should have an aftertaste of coffee, and not milk right? I'm used to magnolia and I think I don't really taste the milk in the latte.
The "Raw" I'm describing is the pure raw taste of freshly squeezed milk, and yes the milk taste is very strong, there is definitely a hint of raw milk aftertaste in the latte (sumatra mandheling beans).

A lot of the 'fresh' milk sold in Malaysia is actually reconstituted powdered milk, much of it with added 'íngredients' such as sucrose & flavouring. I don't know if Magnolia full cream milk is reconstituted but their low fat is totally not milk. Seems that these dairy companies do their best to obfuscate the true ingredients of their products. Having drunk raw milk delivered from the farm until I was 18, I find it very difficult to buy real fresh milk here. Tesco brand is pretty close, I don't know which dairy company is supplying them.

Just tried Yarra milk by Farm fresh....really like it. Hope the price remains reasonable and easily available.

For those looking for "raw" milk, perhaps you can try getting unpasteurised milk from the suppliers of milk to Indian cuisine restaurants. I know quite a few people like it with local kopitiam coffee, but personally too strong milk taste for me.

I think the "Fresh" ones are probably the local ones, FarmFresh, Magnolia...etc
According to a source, those imported from Australia are rarely fresh, most if not all have been processed. One of the challenges for these imported milk is the freshness, if local FarmFresh delivers them from farm to shop in 2 days, its going to be more challenging (in terms of cost) for these imported milk. That's one of the points in which my friend is looking into.

Haven't tried Yarra, seems to be cheaper than Magnolia (most retails had increased Magnolia's price to RM9!) is it good with milk coffee? and Raw taste?

i am a believer that coffee and brewing method are two different subject.
therefore, my answer is yes... can brew with espresso machine. however,
i do not know if you will like it. others may have different opinion.

mr. coffee should be able to provide you the info on their coffee.

Yes, any coffee can be pulled on an espresso machine provided the grind is find enough and coffee is fresh enough
However, the taste is purely on you. Nice or not is up to you to decide smile.gif

yes, i read about that but currently i prefer to look for budget espresso coffee, reasons are i very new in brewing coffee (2months) and i still dont have a coffee grinder.

ymeng85's coffee seem like more premium coffee to me, will try his coffee when i had bought a grinder.
