If you’ve played Overwatch (and if you haven’t, what are you waiting for?), you’ve probably noticed that the game features some great sound and visual effects. Well, there’s one sound effect in particular that stands out—I’m talking about the sound you hear when your shot makes contact. It’s very distinct, and it was made possible thanks to beer.

OK, I’m never drinking coffee out of a cup again.

The Grind Coffee Company in Johannesburg, South Africa has become Instagram famous for their speciality coffee beverage: a small latte served in a chocolate-coated ice cream cone.

Dayne Levinrad, the barista who came up with the idea for Coffee In A Cone, says that the drink is incredibly popular. So much so, that people come from across the world just to taste (and grab a photo of) the drink. Levinrad notes that the coffee-cone is one of the most popular beverages on Instagram, and the hashtag #coffeeinacone has popped up on over 1 million pics so far this year.

Well, now you can cross it off your bucket list.
