Starbucks swaps traditional ice for coffee ice at select stores


Yes, that's right, for 80 cents per drink you too can pack even more caffeine into the already pretty heavily caffeinated drink offerings available at the coffee chain.

Now, the company is quietly testing out another idea championed by some smaller shops: coffee ice cubes.

Hate having your coffee water down by ice cubes?

For less than a dollar, Starbucks fanatics can give their iced coffee a little extra staying power.

But if the caffeinated cubes, made from Colombian coffee, keep you from having to settle for diluted coffee, the price just might be worth it.

With the weather warming up, Starbucks' latest test is aimed at iced-coffee lovers.

This is not the first time that Starbucks Corporation has suggested coffee ice cubes to its customers. "The coffee taste was stronger and it was a lot smoother". 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.
