The national coffee chain has come out with yet another addictive reason for consumers to make multiple trips every week, introducing a new type of Frappuccino.

We're talking affogato style!

Wait... so what, exactly, are we talking about?

An affogato is an Italian dessert in which a shot of hot espresso is poured over cold vanilla gelato or ice cream.

According to various outlets, Starbucks will make any Frappuccino on the menu "affogato-style," meaning a barista will pour a shot of espresso on top of the drink for a beautiful marbling effect.

They establishment is featuring three suggested flavors, Vanilla Bean, Caramel and Mocha.

Affogato-style Frappuccinos will be available at Starbucks in the United States and Canada starting on July 7 (that's today!) and lasting through the summer.
