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.

The worst part of ice coffee is the ice, that's why I order mine without. This could fix that

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