Beet Root Latte? Beetroot Latte? So 2017! We’re upping our game and are greeting the autumn the royal way – with our Purple Power Latte. A totally purple latte macchiato, all thanks to red cabbage. Yep, you heard it right: red cabbage.

Spice up your Latte

Up until now red cabbage spent its lonely life in one of your Grandma’s jars. Totally unjustly! In the form of our self-made, aromatic syrup, it’s found itself a new sparring partner in latte macchiato. And it ensures a spicy, power boost to your latte. Red cabbage contains loads of antioxidants and lots of vitamin C. Your immune system will thank you.
