People are going nuts over this Melbourne cafe's 'deconstructed latte'

A Melbourne cafe has taken coffee to a whole new level by serving deconstructed lattes — and people are going nuts over it.

It seems the latest trend in the hipster city is coffee served in three different cups — espresso, milk and water.

The aim is to let you mix coffee to your own taste but people are’t happy with the DIY project.

Australian writer Jamila Rizvi – the editor at large of Mamamia – recently posted a photo of a deconstructed latte on Facebook saying: “Sorry Melbourne but no. No no no no no.”

Rizvi waited 20 minutes for her cup to arrive before realising that she had to assemble the coffee herself.

“Hipsterism has gone too far when your coffee comes deconstructed,” she wrote.

“Next stage? I’ll just get a chopping board with a bunch of actual coffee beans and an upside down hat on it.”

Over on Reddit, many wrote that Rizvi should have expected it if it said “deconstructed latte” on the menu while others said that a deconstructed coffee was not something they would pay for.

“Everything is getting cold quickly, the milk froth is separating quicker still and the barista should know how to pour better than the customer,” wrote yagankiely.

Another user said: “If I knew how to mix those beakers together, I wouldn’t be there paying them $5 in the first place.”

The Facebook post has already been shared over 2,000 times since it was posted yesterday morning.
