Looking for a way to elevate your weekend coffee experience? Well a visit to Dubai’s Burj Al Arab is in order, with the hotel having introduced a creation they’re touting as the “ultimate gold cappuccino”. The elaborate drink - which comes with an equally elaborate Dh85 price tag - has 24-carat Italian gold blended into the “luscious” foam and is topped with gold flakes. You’ll be richer for the experience, pardon the pun.
