The Newest Trend: Rainbow Coffee

Rainbow Brite would be proud.

Some trends are great, some are just quite ridiculous. But like most food trends, it’s created for the sake of looking good on Instagram. The latest victim: coffee.

The favourite drink of 99% of the population has now found itself the target of the rainbow brigade. Joining the ranks of rainbow grilled cheese and even rainbow bagels, the rainbow coffee is the brainchild of Mason Salisbury, a barista at Las Vegas coffee shop Sambalatte where he adds food colouring to steamed milk before creating his works of art.

You can even watch him create these works of art on his Instagram account.
