Coffee Without Milk?

It's a frightening prospect for some, but also a potential reality as the 2013 US Farm Bill remains as of yet, unpassed. The Farm Bill, which is actually a five year agricultural policy bill to help subsidize the cost of agriculture hasn't been pushed through as Congress remains embroiled in fiscal cliff debates. As a result of the bill's delayed passing, the price of grocery items could potentially spike, milk included. Could you imagine paying $6, or possibly even more money for a gallon of milk?

If the bill is delayed until April of 2013 as some expect it may be, there are really only three options: cough up the extra money, cut the milk, or find another creamer for your favorite drinks. I looked up some alternatives and some of the most commonly recommended ones were different kinds of plant milks, like soy or almond. This is a topic we've taken some interest in recently so if you have any questions for us about making drinks with milk alternatives, don't hesitate to ask!

I am currently buying organic milk and pay $6 a gallon...which is outrageous. I cannot wait to see what the prices will jump up to in 2013. Time to start drinking my coffee black I guess...

I can't go without milk in my coffee so I will probably end up forking over the extra cash.

Probably fork out the extra cash for my normal milk, I'll need a second job soon to pay for my espresso habit.

Maybe a good idea to buy local milk. Cut down on transportation costs and support your neighbors at the same time!
