Ever wanted a caffeinated beverage that looked as antisocial as you felt sometimes? Then you’re in luck because the goth latte is here. It is made from activated charcoal, but this time Ben Luo, an Australian barista and coffee enthusiast, has experimented a little with the beverage, and the final result has completely swept the internet with positive feedback from around the world.
Ben, who owns White Mojo café in Melbourne, prepares the gothic latte using a smooth paste of black sesame seeds, peanuts, almonds and soy milk. Taste? You better check out social media, that has been set alight by people having this hot, jet black coffee and posting its pictures on Instagram with hashtag #whitemojo.
The owner of the café said in an interview:
For those who are hesitant to give up their morning coffee, there’s more to the new drink than just its chic dark hue. While the black latte looks great, our point of difference is that it actually tastes delicious and sweet, too.
Despite the dark appeal, it looks and tastes great. If you want to see how the dark coffee tastes, visit White Mojo café at 115 Hardware Street, Melbourne and grab a cup for $6.50. Don’t forget to share your experience in the comment section below.
