The only thing better than Starbucks iced coffee? Starbucks iced coffee with Starbucks coffee ice. ~*cOfFeE iNcEpTiOn*~. Such a thing now exists, and it’s being tested by the coffee chain at 100 stores in Baltimore and St. Louis.
“Customers can add ice that’s been made using Starbucks coffee to any iced espresso or brewed beverage for 80 cents,” said a Starbucks spokesperson. The best 80 cents you’ll ever spend! Watered-down coffee sucks, and this eliminates that problem while making it even stronger.
According to Reddit user owlcitizen44, the new Starbucks creation is delightful. They said they substituted ice for coffee ice when making a White Mocha Frappuccino. “I’m not a huge Frappuccino fan, but the coffee ice really made it better. The coffee taste was stronger and a lot smoother,” the user wrote.
In that same thread, they explained how the cubes are prepped, saying it comes pre-made in a package.
While it sounds incredible, the coffee ice is only being tested for a limited time. “We often test new products, programs, and ideas to gather feedback from our customers and partners,” added the Starbucks spokesperson.
Fingers crossed this makes it on the menu permanently. And, if you don’t live in Baltimore or St. Louis, you can always DIY your own coffee ice.
