If you’re looking for the perfect antidote to the Unicorn Frappuccino craze of 2017, look no further than a humble café in New York City.

The Round K Café is now selling a drink that they’ve named the Matte Black Iced Latte. It may look horrific, but apparently, it’s actually pretty tasty.

Made with espresso, coconut ash, and 98% dutch processed cacao, this particular frozen treat is every bit as creamy and cold as a Frappuccino from Starbucks, but far more unique. It’s also made with almond milk, making it both dairy free and suitable for vegans, which is a nice touch for those who are uneasy for various reasons with the idea of drinking a milky frozen beverage.

If a bitter chocolate frozen latte isn’t quite your idea of a fun time, the Round K Café also sells a variety of other unique drink options, including a wasabi latte that’s worth trying at least once, if only for bragging rights after the fact.

These drinks are certainly a far cry from the sugary sweet Unicorn drink that made headlines earlier this year. For those who want a more sophisticated if somewhat maudlin frozen coffee, there are worse choices than the Matte Black Iced Latte from the Round K Café in New York!
