This cafe put lattes in avocado shells as a joke and people loved them

Avocado lattes are a thing
and we're confused
Eating healthy can sometimes be difficult, so, like most, you take to easing your way to full on healthy — like adding cinnamon to your coffee or pairing it with some fresh fruit. But combining two foods can be either disastrous or rewarding. In this case, well, we're really just kind of confused.
The "Avolatte" is an Australian-based drink that started in 2017 at Truman Cafe in Melbourne, known for its incredibly beautiful plating and amazing latte art. This combo consists of an empty Avocado shell being used instead of a coffee cup, and a latte is poured into the shell.
Baristas claimed they started this as a joke, but the internet took to this food-hybrid, because of course it did. It caught the attention of avid coffee shop goers who were seeking a new way to drink their lattes.
In May of 2017, Truman Cafe posted a video on Instagram, where it has been shared and reposted by thousands.
The comments on the original post ranged everywhere from "I have to try this!" to "Why would someone do this?!" and honestly, we're just as confused as they are.
Barista Jaydin Nathan said to news.com.au that they made it as a joke, but due to overwhelming demand for the empty shell with hot milk, Truman cafe was looped into selling the Avolatee regularly. "I think it's ridiculous. It's literally coffee in a piece of rubbish."
We couldn't have said it better ourselves, Jaydin.
Would you try the Avolatte?
