The buzzword in food these days seems to be mashup, and this seems to find its way on to Instagram feeds in all sorts of ways. And while most mashups involve bringing two disparate foods or cuisines together — think the sushi burrito and the waffle pizza — the trend has extended to presentation as well.
One prime example is coffee in a cone. The trend, which was started by a South African coffee shop called The Grind Coffee Company, involves drinking a latte out of a waffle cone that’s been lined with four different types of chocolate. And there’s a challenge as well — you need to drink your latte in 10 minutes, otherwise your cone will become a soggy mess.
