Forget everything you thought you knew about coffee: you are no longer going to want to drink it in its usual form.

After all, the dreary (and environmentally un-friendly) cardboard coffee cup cannot help but look obsolete in the face of the latest Instagram food trend: the coffee in a cone.

Originating from a South African cafe, The Grind Coffee Company, earlier this year, the highly Instagrammable drinks have since gone viral and amassed more than 1,500 posts on the social media platform so far.

As the perfect mix of coffee and ice cream, it's not hard to see why the drinks have been so popular.

Luckily, they've since been featured on menus across the world from Los Angeles to Taiwan: now we just need someone to bring them to the UK...

 

These people totally get me. #coffeeinacone #meetthefarbers
