I am lactose intolerant. How can I prepare a good cup of coffee with milk? I don't like the taste of black coffee. I usually use soy-milk, but it is nowhere near original milk in taste.

    Almost all coffee "creamers" in the grocery store (Coffemate, International Delight) are actually non-dairy. – PoloHoleSet Aug 17 '16 at 18:29

Best option is lactose-free milk. I assume you live in India and it may be hard to find in India as lactose intolerance is not common among Indians. In that case, you may try goat milk which has naturally less lactose than cow milk. But I'm not sure if this will be enough (personally) for you.

  • Hey thanks, we do have lactose free milk available easily from online groceries like big basket and grofers. Amazon too offers it. – rancho Jul 31 '16 at 22:37

Try frothing the soy milk with a hand-held frother, even if you just slightly froth it.

According to this Milk Frothing Guide

Incorporating air into the milk improves and sweetens the taste. Milk that has not been foamed at all tends to taste flat and dull by comparison.

Also consider experimenting with other kinds of milk substitutes: almond milk, almond-cashew milk, coconut milk, hazelnut milk, hemp milk, oat milk, and rice milk.

Update: I've found that I like oat milk the best. It should be feasible to make oat milk, but I haven't tried that yet.

    Also try different varieties / brands of soya milk. There can be a lot of variation between them. eg sweetened or not, or some brands can have a strange taste or texture. – vclaw Aug 6 '16 at 1:11
