This charcoal latte has a gothic black color, making it the assumed rival of all rainbow-colored unicorn food products, including the limited edition Unicorn Frappuccino from Starbucks. Available at Damson & Co -- a coffee and wine bar located in the Soho neighborhood in central London -- the coffee beverage contains activated charcoal, which gives the drink its dark hue.
Activated charcoal is also a buzzy ingredient in skin care at the moment, as it has detoxification properties. In the same way that charcoal is supposed to improve the appearance and health of skin, it is also supposed to enhance wellness and digestive health when drunk. The charcoal latte is also visually appealing and Instagram-friendly with contrasting white latte art.
