Along with blending "a generous quantity" of 24-carat gold into the espresso, the drink is then topped with Italian gold flakes and embellished with the trademark sail-like design on the cappuccino foam. 

The drink is paired with a chocolate marshmallow, also sprinkled with a shower of finely-milled gold flakes.
