Coffee Cones Are Instagram's New Obsession

Why wouldn't you want to sip coffee from a waffle cone?

Ice cream season may have drawn to a close, but that doesn't mean you can't still enjoy the ol' waffle cone on a daily basis. Thanks to a coffee shop in Johannesburg, South Africa, a new trend is sweeping Instagram. Look up "#coffeecone" and prepare to let out an audible "awww."

According to Extra Crispy, Joburg's The Coffee Grind Company came up with the concept to serve coffee in a chocolate-dipped waffle cone, and the Internet responded accordingly: with a wave of Instagrams. Headlines like "Coffee in a Waffle Cone? Yes, It's a Thing" followed, and imitations have taken off around the globe.

Dayne Levinrad, the creator of what people are calling "the world's most Instagrammed coffee," not only perfected a cone that wouldn't fall apart when filled with hot liquid, but he also lined that cone with chocolate for an extra layer of protection. (We'll never argue with that.) The result? Not only the cutest way to drink coffee but the best-tasting mug to eat when you're done.
