We've got a lot in common with our friends over at Tache-- we're both small businesses who care a lot about sustainability, both our founders are Iranian-American women who hail from alt-milk loving California but have called New York City and its best-ever cappucinos home, and both Tache and Goldune were born in late 2020. In short, when it was time to launch our first ever limited edition sustainable food + beverage capsule, The Shelf, we had already been smitten with Tache for months.
Almond milk, while a delicious dairy milk alternative, is often made from almonds grown in drought-ridden California. Almonds are thirsty little suckers-- they take a lot of water to grow. Pistachio trees consume about 75% less water than almond trees do, and these pistachios aren't grown in water-challenged California, which makes Tache the perfect, slightly more sustainable friend to your morning coffee than almond or dairy milks. Tache comes in a big pack of six, which allows us to pack and ship these more efficiently and to be more responsible about our emissions and resource consumption. Each 6-pack of Tache ships 1-5 days after you place your order. Psst! Goldune is the only retailer who carries a pack that includes both Unsweetened + Original. We're calling it The Goldune Special.
Tasting notes: velvety, silky and smooth. This is one of our favorite alt milks for a reason. In our experience, it doesn't separate the way some almond milks do. It's particularly great in matcha, hot chocolate, adaptogenic lattes and cold brew.
