A new trend is gaining popularity in the Emirates - drinks with the addition of gold. For example, here you can try real gold coffee.
How to have a cup of gold coffee in Dubai
Coffee lovers just have to try the emirate variant of this beverage - it is flavoured with gold here. Edible gold has no smell and taste. And, although some people claim that it is good for health, here it is used as a decoration for coffee.

Pattern in a white foam is sprinkled with crumbs or flakes, which consist of gold leaf - 96% gold and 4% silver.

Gold coffee in Dubai is drunk slowly. First, in order not to get burned. Secondly, to enjoy the scent. Thirdly, in order to contemplate the "beauty" prepared by the local barista in the cup for a while.

How to do?

The gold coffee in Dubai is served in few places. Mocca Art Cafe - one of them. It is located in downtown, in the Souq Al Manzil market area.

1. Get to the Burj Khalifa / Dubai Mall Station. Then take a cab or drive a rented car along Al Sa'ada Street / D86. Go to the Burj Khalifa Boulevard. Turn to the 3rd exit at the ring road. Turn to the Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Boulevard. One more turn to the right at the nearest crossroads - and you're here.

2. Order the coffee, sprinkled with 24-carat gold. They usually draw the pattern in a foam that resembles a dome of a mosque. But who knows. Perhaps, some new trends will have appeared when you arrive.

3. If you decide to have a quest called "try all the gold drinks and dishes", continue the evening here, sipping the gold tea. It is Ceylon tea, covered with gold plating. And then go for gold ice cream .

When to do?

The cafe is open daily from 7:00 to 17:00.

How much?

The minimum cost of the gold coffee in Dubai is 50 dirhams.
