Australia Shocks World With Cauliflower Latte
AUSTRALIA - Trends come and go, but coffee is forever™. (I know this isn't trademarked, but if anyone knows how to go about doing that, help a sister out.) 2018 brought us oat milk, enough CBD products to knock me out for a whole year, and the broccoli latte. However, we’re in 2019 now, which means the broccoli latte is OUT and the cauliflower latte is IN.
Capitalizing on the hubbub the broccoli latte caused, Fresh Select CEO John Said wanted to bring another headline-making coffee drink to life.
“Broccoli latte was a great story, a bit of a novelty create awareness on what is possible,” Said shared with ABC Rural. “Our thinking was that cauliflower is a bit creamier and its color is similar to milk, and it wouldn’t look like a green coffee.”
Made with seven grams of cauliflower powder, Said noted that the creaminess of the vegetable helps cut down the bitterness of the coffee. To each their own, of course, but I like coffee as bitter as my soul.
As for what’s next in the world of the powdered vegetable? Said explained that he wants food companies to consider how products like this can up consumers’ intake of fruit and veggies. Will we start seeing powdered banana lattes? Powdered date loaves? Only time will tell.
