Gothic Lattes Are The New Trend For People With Dark Souls

Lattes featuring activated charcoal have been dubbed the “Goth Latte.” Previously only found in the UK and Australia, the Goth Latte can now be found in Venice, California.

Everyone knows what it is like to wake up in the morning and need that first cup of coffee to get into gear. There are some days where that cup cannot be dark enough, either. If you are someone who finds themselves feeling this way on a regular basis, we have got the perfect drink for you. The Goth Latte is here and it is every bit as spectacular as you would have hoped.

A typical latte is brown in color from the espresso shots, topped with white, foamy milk.

The Goth Latte is a little different. It’s black. Like, completely black. Can you guess what gives it this dark, goth color?

Connaissez-vous le Goth latte? Il s'agit d'un café latte réalisé avec un ingrédient spécial… du charbon activé! Des propriétés détoxifiantes à la clé, mais gare au sourire! 😬 . #cafe #gothlatte #latteart #halloween #cafénoir #coffeecup #amoureuxducafé

It’s black from the key ingredient: activated charcoal. No worries, these lattes are safe to drink. They are even healthier than they sound!

Activated charcoal is a substance that many of us rely upon when it is time to cleanse our bodies of unwanted toxins.

The Goth Latte may look like something that one of the Devil’s minions would drink, but the effects are rather heavenly. If you consume these beverages in the right amount, they will assist you in ways that you never could have expected.

Up until now, these lattes have only been seen in cafes in the United Kingdom and Australia. Thankfully, Menotti’s, located in Venice, California, released their version of the Goth Latte!

While the Goth Lattes still aren’t popular all over the US, they seem to be spreading.
