Starbucks, Nitro Cold Brew

Joshua Trujillo, Starbucks

For those of you who think Starbucks is only for the #PSL crowd, think again. The coffee company just announced the release of their hippest coffee to date. The birthplace of the Pumpkin Spice Latte has come a long way, judging from their latest item, the Nitro Cold Brew. The what-o, what-what? Nitro, which is short for nitrogen, is infused with the cold brew coffee and poured, sans ice, from a tap, Starbucks says. If you've ever had nitro beer, it's like that, but, with coffee. If you haven't, ask the nearest hipster to clarify. 

Starbucks also notes the drinks are to be served unsweetened, and a Tall has only five calories with zero grams of sugar. Um, sold!? Honestly, it looks so creamy and delicious in that picture, why would you want to add anything to this mouth-watering masterpiece? In other words, why fix something that isn't broken? The new chic drink is available in select Seattle stores, and will make an appearance in over 500 locations by the end of the summer season. 

Even if Nitro is not your jam, cold-brew fans still have something to get excited about at Starbucks. The chain is also releasing a Vanilla Sweet Cream Cold Brew, and it sounds like a ray of sunshine beaming down from the heavens. Unlike the Nitro Cold Brew, this drink is served over ice with a dash of sweetened vanilla cream. Come to mama. A Tall one of these will only run you 100 calories, which is pretty wonderful for a sugary Starbucks drink. Expect to see this summer offering in both Canada and stores in the states.
