Introducing Starbucks® Iced Coffee Blend
Summer is here and the need for a cool refreshing beverage to quench our sun-induced thirst on those hot summer days is definitely a must. Well look no further, Starbucks® Iced Coffee Blend is a great way to cool off at home during those hot summer days.
Starbucks® Iced Coffee Blend is a blend of East African coffees. In past years, our East African summer coffee was called Gazebo Blend. This new blend is similar but goes even better over ice!
When we set out to create a great tasting iced coffee, we looked for beans and a roast that stood up to the cold. Roasted to accentuate its full flavored taste, this multi-region blend of premium beans comes alive when served chilled. Medium-bodied, well-balanced, and caramelly smooth, you’ll love it with milk and sweeteners, or served straight up over ice.
So when the sun is beating down and you feel the need to quench your thirst try an iced brewed coffee in the store and bring the same bean recipe home with you in a bag! Don’t forget to “make it yours” by adding milk or soy, or one of our delicious flavors like vanilla, caramel, or hazelnut.
And it’s easy to brew iced coffee right. Just follow these three steps:
- Brew it double strength – use the same amount of coffee you’d normally make, but just half the water.
- After brewing, add enough ice to fill your pot or pitcher.
- Serve the coffee fresh over ice in a glass.
I like my Starbucks® Iced Coffee lightly sweetened with only two pumps of vanilla syrup and a splash of half-and–half. Tell us how you like yours.
