Los Angeles Cafe Creates Edible Coffee Cup

For millennia, mankind has gazed at the heavens and wondered why coffee cups were made from plaster and ceramic, rather than edible foodstuffs. After all, coffee and food go together pretty well, as anyone who has ever eaten a danish can tell you. Mankind can finally rest easy tonight. Here is a fully edible coffee cup.

Los Angeles coffee shop Alfred is responsible for the toothsome mug, and as such they are calling it the Alfred Cone. As the name suggests, it resembles the bottom of an ice cream cone and, because that's not nearly decadent enough, has been dipped in chocolate.  It's on the small side, but is still the perfect size for a shot or two of espresso. Sip. Chomp. Sip. Chomp.

The edible cup has proven to be a hit, even though not on the menu proper. It's one of those 'secret items' that everyone knows about like Animal Fries at In-N-Out Burger or 'actual meat' at McDonald's.
