In a landmark decision made earlier this month, Four Barrel Coffee has officially gone soy free. Citing environmental, health, and taste reasons, Four Barrel Coffee joins a likeminded cadre of soy-free fine cafes worldwide, including Oslo’s Tim Wendelboe, who dropped soy from their menus in May of 2011. Four Barrel will instead offer almond milk, which is a delicious dairy alternative (homemade almond milk from Manhattan mainstay Abraço remain our favorite milk substitute and espresso experience).
