Almond Breeze has rolled out new packaging on its Barista Blend almond milk with the new look chosen by baristas and roasters.

Almond Breeze asked baristas and roasters to share which design they liked the best for its Barista Blend variety, and they went into the running to win $20,000 to divide between themselves and their favourite café. The winner of the competition, Natalie Batchelor, chose to share the money with Tarts Café in Perth.

The winning design, which features a sleek dark blue look, aims to complement Australian café culture with its minimalistic design and simple clean aesthetic.

The Barista Blend concepts were created with the help of baristas across Australia. In appreciation of their help, Almond Breeze Barista Blend has created the Barista Benchmark series, featuring leading baristas on the side of its new packs.
