Cracking coffee in the UAE: Get your hands on the social media sensation

Sip your way through the viral beverages in Abu Dhabi, Dubai and the Northern Emirates.

The latest coffee craze taking social media by storm is the cracking coffee. This visually appealing drink features a coffee-based beverage encased in a chocolate shell. The fun comes from the satisfying crack when squeezing the beverage and breaking the shell open.

While the trend traces its roots to South Korea, cafés around the world are offering their own versions. So, if you’re looking for a unique and TikTok-worthy coffee experience, here’s how to get your hands on the viral cracking coffee in the UAE.

Elsewhere in Khorfakkan

With its stunning beaches and historical charm, Khorfakkan might not be the first place that comes to mind for trendy coffee. Located in the Banks Building in Hayawa 4, Elsewhere has transformed its cool café into Khorfakkan International Airport. The space features check-in counters and luggage carousels. Once visitors have “checked in” for their flight to Mars, they are in for a cracking experience. The delicious drinks combine cool, creamy coffee with a rich chocolate shell, creating a delightful textural contrast.

Feather Cafe in Fujairah

Fujairah’s Feather Coffee might not be on the viral cracking coffee map yet, but it has recently introduced the social media trend to its offering of artisanal coffee creations. Renowned for its focus on unique flavour profiles, the anticipation of cracking the chocolate shell to discover the warm, comforting coffee within is a winning combination of Feather Coffee’s signature touch with the latest trend.
