AVO WHAT?

You read it right. Thrillist Food & Drink has provided us with our next novelty food creation to obsess (or gawk) over. Forget avocado toast. This is apparently the next big thing.

Avocado lattes, or more commonly referred to as “avolattes.”

Rich espresso and perfectly frothed milk served directly out of the shell of an avocado; possibly donning it’s very own expertly executed latte art.

BUT WHY?

This trend began when baristas working in a cafe in Australia decided to combine their two obsessions: coffee and avocados.

The avolatte caught on with other local cafes and has now become an internet sensation (maybe that’s a bit of an overstatement, but you get it. We’re talking about it, aren’t we?).

SO ARE YOU IN OR ARE YOU OUT?

Whether you’re ready to create a petition for your local cafes to create their own version or it’s existence alone makes you question what millennials are going to think of next, we highly recommend reading the hilariously trending #avolatte tweets. Even Merriam Webster is in on the fun.
