Another customer offered a more conciliatory review, saying, "extra vegetables in my coffee, so, can't complain".
A cafe in Melbourne has become the first in the world to experiment with a broccoli latte.
A new way of processing broccoli could help you get your servings of vegetables, while dealing with the wastage of "unsightly" food.
The powder itself is a remarkable innovation led by CSIRO, Australia's federal agency for scientific research, along with the nonprofit horticulture organization Hort Innovation, in which broccoli pieces that would otherwise not make it to market because of imperfect form are being salvaged and turned into a kind of superfood powder.
But coffee isn't the only potential application for the powdered brassica.
The broccoli powder is being developed as part of a larger research and development project which aims to reduce vegetable waste by creating healthy food products from "ugly" produce.
Broccoli is a nutrient-rich vegetable, with plenty of fibre, vitamins A, B1 and B6, potassium, zinc and magnesium, among many others.
John Lloyd, chief executive of Hort Innovation, said the powder could be used for smoothies, soups, baking, and even as a way to hide broccoli in meals from fussy kids.
The 100% broccoli powder is made from whole broccoli, and is produced using a combination of selected pre-treatment and drying processes to retain the natural colour, flavour and nutrient composition of fresh broccoli. This prevents the broccoli from being thrown out, and also reaps several health benefits.
Australia's most freaky new coffee trend is here - and this time it's not hipsters to blame, but Australia's top scientists.
You know when you are eating broccoli and then you wash it down with a nice cup of coffee? No?
I see this project as the emerging new food trend.
"Australians don't eat enough vegetables and farmers across Australia will have access to an alternative market whilst improving farm yields and sustainability", he says. They will also be contributing to healthier lifestyles..
