Starbucks' Newest Frappuccinos Are a Caffeine Lover's Dream
“Double shot of espresso” requests just might be a thing of the past.
Starbucks‘ prices are going up next week, but that isn’t going to stop their quest to keep you as addicted to their frappe menu as you’ve ever been. This time, the coffee chain is doing it with their Affogato-style Frappucino. The beverage is inspired by the Italian dessert in which ice cream gets topped with hot espresso. Starting July 7, baristas will top your cold finished frappuccino with a warm splash of the dark brew.
“We start with a shot of our smooth signature Espresso Roast known for its rich flavor and caramelly sweetness,” said Ryan Coombes of the Starbucks beverage development team. “When you pour the espresso over the Frappuccino, it creates a beautiful marbling finish.”
WATCH: Starbucks’ New Drink Doesn’t Make Sense, But You’ll Still Order It
You can order any frappucino Affogato-Style, but three beverages are being added to the menu specifically: Vanilla Bean, Caramel and Mocha. The drinks will be available throughout the rest of the summer.
The price changes might have dampened coffee-loving spirits but, well, no judgement if your love affair with Starbucks is officially on again.
