Crazy Cup: The World’s weirdest coffee trends

From a deconstructed latte to coffee from beans that have previously been ingested by a civet cat, there a few things weirder than the world of coffee…

Avolatte – Developed at the Truman Café in Melbourne, the Avolatte is exactly what you would expect it to be: a latte served in an avocado shell. The logic behind it appears to be that it’s good for the environment thank to its natural cup status, and has a slight avocado taste. Mostly though, it just seems to be a highly Instagram-able hipster trend.  

Turbo Gin & Tonic – Gin plus tonic plus a shot of cold brew equals the perfect after work pick-me-up. Far from being crazy, this actually sounds like a darn good idea.

Meringue Coffee – Another highly Instagram-worthy invention, the Meringue Coffee, while being aesthetically pleasing does also offer a tasty bonus treat. Developed by Take Out Drawing Cafe in Seoul, a regular cup of joe is served with gorgeous white meringue peaks that patrons can break off to dip into their beverage. Is this 'peak' crazy coffee? Not quite…

Deconstructed Flat white – Despite being widely regarded as an actual ‘thing’, no on seems to know the actual name of the Melbourne-based café who concocted this unusual creation of espresso, steamed milk and hot water served in individual vessels, but it has become an internet sensation nonetheless.

Kopi Luwak – The world’s most expensive coffee, Kopi Luwak is produced from the coffee beans which have been digested by a certain Indonesian cat-like animal called then palm civet or also civet cat. This adorable creature can’t resist eating the delicious red berries its finds on the coffee trees. These berries are then digested by the cat which poops out the coffee beans which farmers then collect and roast. Delicious!
