Starbucks Coffee Ice Cubes Tested in Select Locations

The cool cubes, made from brewed Starbucks coffee, can be added to any beverage for $.80, a spokesperson for the coffee chain confirmed. Reddit user Owlcitizen44 started a thread Tuesday explaining that when added to a White Mocha Frappuccino, "the coffee ice really made it better", adding, "the coffee taste was stronger and it was a lot smoother".


Would you add coffee ice cubes to your Starbucks iced coffee drink? The company said if consumer-reaction is favorable the coffee cubes could be available in NY soon, perhaps in time for summer.


The specialty ice cubes cost an extra 80 cents. "Starbucks is testing coffee ice for a limited time this summer in only 100 stores in Baltimore and St. Louis".


Soon Starbucks' customers might not need to tell baristas "go light on the ice". The process is as simple as using 16 oz of its Espresso Roast to fill an ice cube tray and then put it in the freezer, Fortune notes.
