This just in: Avocado lattes are a thing. We were intrigued, as we love avocado ice cream, and avocado mayo, and smoothies and gelato. But then we learned that this mashup of things we love – our favorite savory fruit with espresso and milk – is not combined in the way we’d imagined.
Truman Cafe in Melbourne, Australia is offering a latte served inside half an avocado. Called an “avolatte”, the barista makes her little swirly espresso and milk design right there, in the avocado pit-bowl. And then you drink it.
Buzzfeed confirmed that avocado Lattes are an actual menu item – not some hideous, 2017-appropriate joke.
The internet, naturally, freaked out.
We had to know what or who, in Mother Earth’s name, was to blame for this audacity.
The answer is: Millennials.
We’re not shocked, honestly, that critics leapt on Gurner’s statements, citing other, perhaps more likely reasons Millennials are not yet entering the housing market – like prohibitive prices.
Truthfully, whatever the millionaire class thinks of Millennials, we have decided two things: First, we don’t care. Second, we’re up for even more avocado experimentation. GO NUTS, KIDS.
Naturally, we’re fascinated by this story. To be honest, we would gladly spend one of our supposedly $5 house payments on an avocado-flavored latte. So, hey, anyone? Wanna make that for us?
