Gone are the days when you could just pop down the road and pick up a simple coffee.

Now it takes most people a full minute just to say their complicated orders out loud to a barista.

And to keep up with the need for small businesses to get free publicity on Instagram, coffees are becoming more and more outlandish with every passing week.

First there was beetroot coffee, then there was the deconstructed coffee and now we have the live blue algae coffee.

Matcha Mylkbar near St Kilda beach is responsible for this latest coffee invention, and they claim drinking this blue weirdness is really good for you.

We’re not sure, but we know one thing for sure – coffee has reached peak hipster levels in Melbourne.


Bring back the good old days!
