Washingtonians who are up for a trip to Baltimore (or St. Louis) can get coffee ice cubes added to espresso and brewed coffee drinks for an extra 80 cents, according to a Starbucks spokesperson.

The cubes, which are made from Starbucks coffee, are being offered in 100 stores between the two markets—though it's unclear which specific shops are participating.

"As a company, we often test new products, programs and ideas to gather feedback from our customers and partners (employees)," the spokesperson said in an email to DCist.

Meanwhile, Starbucks was recently sued over its unicorn frappuccino, which a Brooklyn cafe alleges was derived from its unicorn latte drink.

The coffee ice cube pilot launched on Monday and will run for the next eight weeks.

Should we be outraged? It's not a bad idea, and .80 isn't unreasonable.

It sounds interesting that Starbucks is testing out coffee ice cubes.

But what are chances they'll be the same roast as the drink? Or are they gonna make ice cubes for each roast they offer... ?

They keep it in the fridge. Sometimes it is lukewarm, which is fine by me

No he's right, once the ice has melted to a certain point, it has dramatically watered down the drink. Coffee ice cubes would keep the best of both worlds by stopping the watering down of the flavor

They should do this with their iced tea & lemonade too. They use a lot of ice, usually too much.

I order both. Too bad cold brews are so much more expensive. I often do my own in that case
