Our response when we get the question if we are allergic or intolerant to specific ingredients.
Cows do not give milk because they are cows; they give milk because they are mothers. They have to become pregnant – every year – to continuously produce milk. She is forcefully impregnated, only to have her baby taken away from her within 48 hours after birth. We steal the milk intended for her calf and put it in our coffee.
Milk that comes from animals is never cruelty-free. What makes it even crueller is that there is no necessity for us to drink it – there is a reason why about 68% of the world population is lactose intolerant. There are many great plant-based alternatives to put in our coffee!
