A new concoction by Australia’s Truman Cafe, the avolatte or avocado latte, is exactly what it sounds like: a creamy, piping hot latte poured into a hollowed-out avocado. The world was first alerted to this new sensation just over a week ago when staff from the Melbourne cafe posted a video on Instagram of a staff member pouring one.
“[Combining] two of Melbourne’s obsessions – lattes and avo,” read the accompanying caption. The avolatte joins a long line of coffee-inspired oddities, including a turmeric latte, a “bulletproof” coffee whipped up with butter, and, of course, Starbucks’ Unicorn Frappuccino. Commenters reacted to the creation with a combination of disgust, awe, and eye-rolling. The Truman Cafe says the drink was meant as a joke and is not an actual menu item.
