What is Coffee Creamer

There are pros and cons to using coffee creamer vs cow's milk. For one, coffee creamer is typically lower in fat than cow's milk. This means that it can be a healthier option for those who are watching their calorie intake.

However, cow's milk does have some benefits over coffee creamer. For example, it contains more protein and calcium than most creamers on the market.

At the end of the day, it's up to you to decide what type of milk you want to use in your coffee. If you're looking for a healthier option, then go with coffee creamer. If you're looking for something that will add more protein and calcium to your diet, then go with cow's milk.

What Does Coffee Creamer Do?

In addition to lightening and sweetening your coffee, adding creamer can also add some extra nutritional value. For example, if you use almond milk as your base, you'll be getting a good dose of calcium and vitamin D. Coconut milk is another great option, as it's high in healthy fats and electrolytes.

Richard Smith is a Tea expert, entrepreneur, and owner of The Kent and Sussex Tea and Coffee Company. Part of a family of renowned Tea planters dating back four generations, he was born in Calcutta (Kolkata), India, where he spent his childhood between Tea Estates in Assam and Darjeeling.

In the late 1970s, having accumulated years of knowledge in the industry, Mr Smith and his mother, Janet Smith, moved to Kent, South East England, to establish a Tea business in the village of Pluckley. Their early days of packing Tea Bags by hand from chests of 10,000 prompted the creation of the company’s flagship infusion known as Pluckley Tea. It remains our most popular product today.

Mr Smith, who studied economics at London Polytechnic, has since specialised in over 1,000 types of Loose Leaf Tea - in addition to around 70 varieties of Roast Coffee - from around the world. These are now available at The Kent and Sussex Tea and Coffee Company, where everything is still packed by hand and fresh to order, not only to honour tradition but to ensure the utmost quality and consistency.
