Our traditional cup of coffee is no ordinary beverage. Prepared from freshly roasted coffee beans by Perky Blenders, cultivated from over 70 countries, the trusty latte is an original and much enjoyed refreshment for many.
However as the times move forward so does the simplicity of a cup of coffee, ranging from Café Latte, Cappuccino, Espresso, Flat White, Macchiato, Mochaccino.. the list is endless. Most recently launching the growing popularity of ‘Coloured Coffees’.
Here at The Grapevine, we have introduced bright, beautifully coloured ‘Rainbow’ lattes varying from green, pink & yellow.
These colours are created by healthy natural powders turning the regular coffee into Superfood drinks. Rainbow Lattes do not contain caffeine however use a variety of flavours such as turmeric, beetroot, green algae and matcha tea to add colour and nutritional benefits. Each of these lattes can also be served with oat milk, almond or coconut milk.
A popular Latte is made with Matcha green tea powder, a healthier alternative to your habitual morning cup of coffee giving you a slow release boost of energy as opposed to a rise and crash of normal caffeine. So enjoy your Latte whilst glowing inside out!
