The White Stuff – how important is milk?

Given that milk based espresso beverages contain between 85-90% milk; it is surprising that very little discussion or consideration is often given to the type and quality of the milk that is used. Having experimented with countless types and brands of milks over the years, I am of the opinion that when it comes to espresso with milk, the milk definitely matters! Rather than trying to reinvent the wheel by writing an exhaustive discourse on milk myself, instead I have included a list of links to articles/resources that I have found helpful on this topic. Enjoy!
