I really want to buy some aMYLK. Where can I find your products?
FARMERS MARKETS: During market season, you can find us at one of our multiple weekend Farmers Markets. During the winter months we are only at Portland Farmers Market at PSU.
BRICK & MORTAR: The aMYLK Latte & Bottle Shop is open to the public in our factory warehouse in NW Portland on weekends. We have a selection of house made gluten free and refined sugar free baked goods as well as lattes and of course, our pure plant-based mylks available. We are currently only open Saturday and Sunday from 9 - 3 pm at 2147 NW York St. just off the I-405 Vaughn exit (turn right onto York St. from NW 23rd). There is plenty of parking. Bring a book or a friend and relax on our couch and enjoy a latte and a treat.
How does pre-ordering work?
Pre-ordering for local pick up at one of our markets or at the shop (weekends only) is the best way to be sure to get what you want. We have high demand at the market and it's first come, first served.
To pre-order, shop from our online store and at check out you will be prompted to select a shipping destination through a drop down menu. Select your location of choice and proceed to checkout. Be sure to include a note if you have any questions about your order.
Pre-orders must be received by Wednesday at noon for weekend pick up. Please do not order after deadline and expect your order to be available. All late orders will roll to the following weekend unless you hear from us. If you have any questions, you can always email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
What if I do not pick up my order? Can I get a refund?
Unfortunately we cannot refund orders that are not picked up. We produce each bottle specifically for you and we hold your bottles until the end of the markets. Bottles not picked up go unsold. If you know ahead of time that you will not be able to make it, please contact us at hello@amylkshop.
Does aMYLK ship across states?
Well... not really. We occasionally offer shipping events for holidays or special occasions. We have indefinitely paused our weekly shipping program for a number of reasons, most notably the high cost of shipping heavy bottles overnight. Global shipping problems paired with low order volume have made it necessary to cancel the program. I hope to reevaluate this program in the near future.
Can I return my bottles?
I am so glad that you want to return your bottle. As an extra incentive, we offer $.50 off your next purchase for every sparkly clean reusable bottle that we receive. Please sterilize them in your dishwasher prior to returning them. We will sterilize them again, but this keeps our staff safe while handling.
If the bottle is not clean, it's hard to reuse and takes a lot of time for us to clean and sterilize. For that reason, we will only give discounts for clean, reusable bottles.
Please keep and recycle caps in curbside recycling by wrapping them in tin foil and leaving them for collection with your paper and plastics.
Is aMYLK Vegan?
My regular line up of mylks all fall into a vegan profile, however, I do sometimes have specials which I feature online and at markets that are not vegan. For example, I sometimes add raw honey or crushed pearls for added nutrients and health benefits.
aMYLK evolved out of my passion for living a healthier lifestyle and that included eating more plants and eliminating dairy from my diet, though I personally do not practice a vegan lifestyle. Read the ingredients carefully and please ask before sampling if you have dietary concerns. We are very respectful of all diet and lifestyle choices at aMYLK.
Are your baked goods gluten free?
We started baking in 2022 when we moved into our new factory warehouse. All of our in-house baked goods are gluten free and free of refined sugar. We make our almond and hazelnut meal in-house using organic nut pulp , which is a byproduct of our mylk making process. We are currently only offering our baked goods at our NW Portland location. Our cookies are amazing paired with an aMYLK latte. We hope you'll swing by!
What is the shelf life of aMYLK?
aMYLK is raw and unpasteurized and therefore has a short shelf life. I designed my mylks to be this way purposely. I believe that food should spoil, not last for weeks or months. In my opinion, foods that have long shelf lives only benefit the corporations who make them and tend to be lacking in vital nutrients.
I don't add any gums, oils or emulsifiers or preservatives, so expect it to spoil if you wait too long. Separation is natural and is not indicative of spoilage.
You should expect your mylk to last between 5-7 days from production. Keep it refrigerated between 36-38 degrees. We have date stamped your bottle with a best by date which means you should drink it before that day, though it may last longer. Your mylk may spoil more rapidly if it has been exposed to heat or bacteria or stored in the door of your fridge. Keep your refrigerator cold and clean and never drink from the bottle unless you plan to finish it in one sitting. Also, keep in mind that in warmer months your mylk will spoil faster than it would in the winter. The rule of thumb is, if it smells sweet, it's probably still fresh.
Can I freeze aMYLK?
Yes! Just be sure to pour your aMYLK into an ice cube tray before freezing. I learned this the hard way. Glass will shatter if frozen. If you make aMYLK ice cubes, you can defrost a few overnight in your fridge in a jar and shake it the next morning. This will extend your shelf life for 30 days! A Stasher bag of ziplock also works well for freezing. Pro-tip: if you freeze into ice cubes, remove them right away and store them in an airtight container in the freezer so they are not exposed to air. Otherwise they get gummy.
Does aMYLK froth well for lattes and such?
Absolutely! I am in love with the Milk Café frother by Breville (I'm now a Breville Affiliate because I love their products so much.) My family and I use this product at least twice a day to heat and froth aMYLK for use in lattes, steamers and adaptogenic elixirs at home. I have found that my plain flavors like almond, tiger nut and hazelnut seem to froth the best, but they all froth beautifully. If you are looking for stiff peak foam, try my plain almond.
