Coffee in a Cone (a.k.a. the most Instagrammable coffee in the world) will soon be available at one very lucky café in Toronto.
This chocolate-covered ice cream cone that’s been filled with coffee was launched in January 2016 and quickly became the most Instagrammed coffee in the world, receiving over one million shares on social media with the hashtag #coffeeinacone.
Dayne Levinrad, a South African entrepreneur and creator of Coffee in a Cone, will be at Balzac’s Liberty Village Café on Thursday, May 11 from 3:30 until 5 p.m. to celebrate its introduction to Canada at a complimentary tasting event.

Levinrad explained that the inspiration for the cone and coffee mash-up came from his desire to make an environmentally friendly snack, perfect for socializing. “I wanted to create something that people could come and eat, drink and enjoy with no waste,” he said. “It’s fully sustainable.”
Levinrad had been working in the coffee business for four years before coming up with his invention, which took months to develop. Starting with a waffle cone, a compound chocolate coating made up of various types of cocoa lines the cone, making it leak-proof. White chocolate is also drizzled inside the cone, which is then filled with either a cappuccino or espresso. Customers have around 10 minutes to drink their coffee before the chocolate inside the cone melts, so you better down it as soon as you get it.
For the upcoming Toronto reveal of Coffee in a Cone, guests will have the option of choosing from a longer list of drinks, including a double espresso, macchiato, hot chocolate or Balzac’s Nitro Cold Brew.
In a press release announcing the upcoming partnership between Coffee in a Cone and Balzac Liberty Village Café, Balzac’s founder Diana Olsen stated that “everyday we strive to bring our customers great coffee and a wonderful experience. Coffee in a Cone is no different. It’s an innovative, fresh take on coffee that gives people that moment they deserve to sit back and enjoy something simple.”
Even if you couldn’t care less about Instagram, it’s certainly a unique spin on the classic latte. And who doesn’t love a chocolate-covered cone?
