ST. LOUIS - A small Starbucks test is creating a big splash with coffee lovers this week.
Monday, the coffeehouse chain introduced coffee ice cubes (yes, ice cubes made of coffee) in 100 stores in St. Louis and Baltimore, Starbucks spokesperson Holly Shafer told USA TODAY. The release is part of a limited-time test, running up to 8 weeks.
This means iced espresso or brewed coffee drinks with coffee cubes won't taste watery after sitting in the sun. And, they'll pack more caffeine.
The extra kick doesn't come without a fee though. The new cubes put customers back 80 cents per drink, TODAY reports.
But, 80 cents beats a watery coffee, amiright?
Considering there are about 25,000 Starbucks locations worldwide, Shafer stressed this test is "very small" and people shouldn't try ordering the cubes at shops outside of the select locations.
