Meet Joanna Heart + Benjamin Milliken of The Palm Coffee Bar-

Joanna and Benjamin, let’s start with your story. We’d love to hear how you got started and how the journey has been so far.
We started this idea of building a community coffee shop a few years back and a few drinks deep on NYE with our best friends. They sparked us talking coffee, business, people, & community. At the time I had a background in design, recruiting a passion for people. Ben & I both also had an expensive romance with coffee going on as we had just had a baby… “No sleep, your passion for a good cup of coffee deepens. It’s a thing. You parents out there get me, and I get you” says Joanna.

The Palm Coffee Bar, Owner, Joanna heart chats barista milk with atlas obscura

Article- Atlas Obscura- “Farmers Are Making Bespoke Milk for Coffee Art”

IF THE HEART ON YOUR cappuccino foam looks extra-twirly, you might consider inquiring whether your favorite caffeine purveyor is using the newest tool in the coffee kit: barista milk. Specifically formulated for coffee shops, barista milk’s higher protein content helps create a more stable foam for latte art, and its creamy richness boosts the flavor of the roasted bean. For a global dairy industry that has seen dropping demand for conventional, liquid milk, this is a promising development.

“I think the specialty coffee industry has really upped the ante with the beans and roasting, and so the milk had to follow,” says Joanna Heart, an owner and barista at The Palm Coffee Bar in Burbank, California. “You’re working with this beautiful bean, it’s fair trade, it’s organic, and you’re putting all this effort into it, and then you’re just dumping whatever milk in it? I think baristas began to realize that milk is also something to be researched and played with as an artist.”

Don’t expect to find this milk for use at home. For now, barista milk, which is priced between 30 to 60 percent higher than conventional dairy milk, is exclusively sold to culinary professionals….
