There are a host of gourmet coffees coming to your local barista.

Do you find yourself getting sick and tired of ordering the same old ‘skinny cap’ or ‘soy flat white’?

Lucky for you, long gone are the days of ordinary coffee. We have complied a list of all the fun new ways you can enjoy your coffee!

Beetroot Latte

Ever wanted to try hot pink coffee? Beetroot Lattes are made by either adding beetroot powder or juice to your regular coffee (sometimes both!) for added flavour, and a nutrient hit! Beetroot is extremely nutrient rich packing in a healthy dose of vitamins that help to fight inflammation and detoxify the liver, as well as a ton of antioxidants.

Broccoli Latte

If you’re expecting coffee beans ground with broccoli to produce a new hybrid product – you’re going to be awfully disappointed. A Broccoli Latte is actually just a regular latte made with added broccoli powder. Those of us who struggle to want to eat broccoli in its natural tree-like form, can now reap all of the health benefits by adding the powder form to our coffees! Two tablespoons of the powder contain one whopping serve of the green veggie, which packs a punch where nutrients are concerned. Broccoli serves as a great source of vitamins C and K, folic acid, potassium and fibre.

Caramel Latte

This one is not so much on the #healthy #fitspo side of things, but rather an indulgent twist on the traditional latte. A Caramel Latte is generally made as a regular latte with added syrup or sauce for that delicious sweet caramel flavour we all know and love!

Charcoal Latte

Another coffee that packs a superfood punch is the Charcoal Latte. By adding charcoal powder to a regular coffee (or omitting the caffeine all together if you’re trying to cut down) you’ll be getting a super detox. Charcoal has long been used in ancient medicine as a cleanse for the body as it absorbs toxins on its way through the digestive system, making it fantastic for gut health, clear skin and general wellbeing.

Dirty Chai Latte

A Dirty Chai is literally just a normal Chai Latte with a shot of espresso in it – perfect if you want to enjoy the flavour of the spices while getting your caffeine hit!

Golden Latte

Sometimes also referred to as a Golden Mylk, this drink is the caffeinated version of the infamous Turmeric Latte. Made by combining turmeric, pepper, cinnamon and water in to a paste before adding coffee, almond milk, vanilla, honey and coconut oil, the Golden Latte gives you all the delicious flavours of a Turmeric Latte with the (potentially) much needed caffeine hit!

Iced Latte

If you’re feeling like an icy twist on your usual coffee the Iced Latte is the perfect op! With a fresh brew of espresso, cold milk and ice, what could go wrong?

Lavender Latte

Love your coffee but want to spice it up a little? A Lavender Latte is made by adding Lavender, either in the form of a powder or syrup (Lavender powder mixed with water and sugar) to your fave coffee. On top of the flavour, Lavender adds anti-inflammatory and antiseptic properties to your drink and can help treat anxiety, insomnia, depression and restlessness.

Mushroom Latte

That’s right, Mushrooms are the latest super-food sip of choice, containing nutrients claimed to offer a natural energy boost and medicinal benefits such as B vitamins and powerful antioxidants which help to support the immune system and prevent damage to cells and tissues.While it sounds a little unsavoury, fear not, no visible fungi are likely to be seen floating in your mug. The coffee is made by isolating the mushroom’s key compounds and drying them to create a drinkable powder.The brew itself is said to boost immunity and productivity, with mushrooms boasting an impressive nutritional profile.

Rose Latte

If you’re ever in need of a good pick me up or general well-being boost, a Rose Latte is the way to go! By adding rose water and fresh rose petals or powder to your regular coffee you’ll also be adding properties that help with bloating, indigestion, and respiratory function, as well as lowering stress and anxiety, and acting as a super mood booster.
