    Pink, turmeric, matcha – there are so many ways to take your latte these days that we’re spoilt for choice when it comes to our coffee. We all love a cup of the good stuff. So much so that us Brits are reportedly drinking 95 million cups of it a day (up 25 million since 2008), with the average person taking two cups a day according to a 2018 survey.

    So it’s fair to say we’re quickly becoming a nation of coffee drinkers. No wonder there are now so many different ways to get your fill – extra hot, wet, in an avocado skin (remember that?).

    And just to make your choice that little bit harder, there’s a new beverage on the block that might have you ditching the flat whites. Enter, the porridge latte.
