Coffee creamers come in two varieties which are dairy and non-dairy creamers. Dairy creamers are milk from the animals they are often goats milk, cows milk, or camels milk. The non-dairy creamers are the typical type of coffee creamers often seen in the supermarkets or sold to your favorite coffee shops.
