Baristas Leave a Little Sparkle Wherever They Go With Glitter CappuccinosChristine Quach
Mumbai’s rapidly growing coffee scene has produced a new Instagram-worthy concoction: glitter coffee. Say what? That’s right, you can now drink what is essentially a glitter bomb latte (just without the grittiness).
The baristas over at Coffee by Di Bella have the world’s coffee lovers rapt with the new Diamond and Gold Cappuccino. This new hit drink is prepared like any usual cappuccino with a double shot of espresso, milk, and foam. The only difference is that baristas add a generous helping of edible glitter before adding the milk and foam. Brilliant, right?
At Coffee by Di Bella’s location in Mumbai, there are two styles of glitter that customers can choose from. One is a rich, luxurious gold while the other is a shimmery silver that flashes different colors depending on the light. You can even combine both for the ultimate glitter coffee.
The trend is quickly dividing coffee drinkers around the world as more coffee shops pick up on it. It has already reached the United Kingdom and is anticipated to hit the U.S. sometime in the near future.
While food bloggers are swooning over the magical quality of their morning cup of joe, more traditional coffee drinkers are wary about consuming glitter. Don’t worry though, edible glitter is FDA-approved, so it’ll be safe to add a little glam to your morning coffee routine.
Priced at about $3.00USD in Mumbai, it’s a bargain compared to today’s top coffee trends circulating the U.S. right now. Let’s hope that the pricing trend also continues as it makes its way to the U.S. Keep on the lookout for this fashionably fancy drink to add the perfect amount of sparkle to your C.N.C. selfie!
