Two Christchurch cafes are causing a stir for refusing to serve trim milk in their coffees.
Lyttlelton Coffee Company's policy of not using trim milk sparked a quick response on social media after a photo of its sign was put online.
Customers have labelled the service as "rude" but the company has defended its' policy saying their whole milk blends better with the coffee.
"All we really use is this whole milk and the whole milk has a higher fat content, the fat content is what gives you that velvety, silky mouth feel," says the company's co-owner Stephen Mateer.
C-One cafe, which has the same policy, says it comes down to personal preference and they simply prefer the taste of full milk.
