Red Velvet Latte? Shanghai’s unique coffee creations

with No Comments

When the traditional red velvet cake took on a drinkable form, it became a phenomenon on the Internet as well as coffee drinkers in Shanghai. This delectable latte started to appear on menus at coffee shops in Australia about a year ago. Now, don’t be surprised if you find it at your own local café.


Featuring the signature hue of the namesake cake, most coffee shops offer the drink without any coffee in it to maintain the color. But at UN CAFFÈ, you get a version with a shot of espresso, which leaves the drink looking much like a normal latte, apart from the milk froth which is actually a bit pink-tinted thanks to a bit of red food coloring powder.
