During the first part of the event we enjoyed coffee with Lactaid Milk, while listening to Master Roaster and Birch Co-Founder Paul Schlader. Paul shared that his love of coffee has taken him far away from his home town.

"At Birch Coffee, we understand the importance of a perfect cup of coffee with real milk and wouldn't want our consumers to jeopardize their coffee tastes based on their dairy sensitivities that are due to lactose," says Paul Schlader, Birch Coffee co-owner and roaster. "Teaming up with LACTAID® felt like a natural fit, and we're excited to offer folks a chance to enjoy their coffee just the way they like it.

Since LACTAID® is 100% real milk just without the lactose, LACTAID® provides an opportunity for consumers to enjoy the great taste and nutritional benefits of real dairy without undesirable consequences such as stomach discomfort.

After the coffee chat, we visited the warehouse to take a tour of the coffee making process. Paul encouraged us to touch and smell the beans, paying attention to the aroma.

As we walked over to a large machine, we learned that it would transform the green beans into brown beans. Once the roasting process was complete, you could noticed a significant difference. The smell went from very green and grainy to rich and chocolaty.

It was a treat to listen to Paul share about the coffee process in such detail and enjoy beverages made with Lactaid Milk.
