So can ChickP's chickpea milk create a rich and persistent crema when producing your Espresso shot, Americano, Cappuccino, Latte or Flat white?
Apparently so and Israeli based ChickP is in Shanghai with the consumate coffee art guys called Latte Art Factory to prove their ChickPea milk does exactly what its dairy based cousin does and better.
'We are thrilled to announce the launch of the EPIC'C ChickPea Barista by our partner Growthwell Foods,' says ChickP.
In coffee making terms, crema refers to the creamy, tan-coloured layer of foam on top of a coffee. It is a significant element of a well-prepared espresso and is considered an indicator of its quality. Crema is created through the emulsification of oils present in the coffee beans during the brewing process.

Not only does it provide a layer of protection helping to preserve the aroma and flavours of the coffee, it also adds a smooth and velvety textured design to the drink. The crema should be thick and consistent, with tiny bubbles evenly distributed across the surface. It doesn't look too bad.
A rich and persistent crema is a desirable characteristic in espresso preparation, as it enhances the overall sensory experience and indicates that the coffee has been properly extracted. 'Notice how similar it appears to dairy-free milk. We and our partners prioritise catering to the needs of vegans, lactose-intolerant individuals, and those with food allergies. And believe us when we say, the taste is as impressive as its looks. Way to go! ' adds ChickP. ChickP is an Israeli foodTech start-up pioneering a novel solution to the growing demands for plant-based protein. The company produces and markets a highly functional chickpea protein isolate boasting a uniquely concentrated protein load (above 90%). Offering a vegetable-based, non-allergenic protein isolate for infusion into a versatile array of food applications, it has a neutral flavour thanks to breakthrough, IP-protected technology, setting a new standard of pure protein solutions.
