With Pink Drinks and Unicorn Lattes becoming crazes in the coffee shop world, we’ve finally come back full circle with a black colored drink. Well, charcoal to be exact.
These beautiful Charcoal Lattes have been spotted throughout coffee shops in London and Australia, and they’re just as photogenic as any other colorful drink you’ve seen over the last year.
Instagram user Pavie V. got one of these lattes at Farm Girl Cafe in Notting Hill, saying it tasted like, “Charcoal with cashew milk and agave syrup.” Not sure how good that is, but at least we have an idea of its unusual taste.
If you’re not familiar with the recent activated charcoal trend, which has been deemed safe to consume, there are supposed health benefits that people use for digestion and detoxification. This has led to “Black Lemonades,” and “Charcoal ice cream,” which have slowly made some noise on social media feeds.
We’re out here in California, so we can’t confirm how good or bad these lattes are, but we remember the trendy Starbucks Unicorn Frap was terrible, and people still flocked to get their pictures of it. Sometimes you just have to do it for the ‘gram.
