Sick of drinking coffee from a cup? Then it’s time to try the coffee cone

With Starbucks and food porn dominating the social media scene, these days coffee is pretty much synonymous with Instagram.

And because this favoured beverage is being pictured a gazillion times a day, those making it are becoming increasingly more creative.

Earlier this year, barista Dayne Levinrad decided that the latest caffeinated craze should involve drinking coffee from ice-cream cones, but in order to prevent the drink from leaking through said cones, the former digital marketing executive had to design a special cone-sealing technique.

CNN has reported that after much testing, the South African discovered that by lining his cones with four different types of chocolate, he would be able to successfully serve coffee cones to his customers.

The clever idea has since been patented by Dayne and – due to the pretty nature of the concept – has received huge attention online.
