Cold Brew Coffee Added To Permanent Menu At Starbucks

Starbucks launched a test run of their cold brew coffee this spring, and on July 7 they officially announced that it's here to stay as part of the permanent menu.

To celebrate this new staple, the Starbucks store at the Beverly Hills Triangle in Los Angeles will partner up with pop artist Steven Harrington to serve the cold brew coffees in these hand-painted Mason jars, according to a press release.

The LA-based artist painted 60 jars with summertime themes. They will be available starting at 8:00 a.m. "I wanted to reflect the colorful, sun-drenched, playful attitude of the Los Angeles lifestyle," Harrington said in a statement. "Since the art is a release for Cold Brew, I tried to push the euphoric sensation of sipping an ice-cold coffee on a hot summer day."

Cold brew coffee is steeped in cool water with ground coffee for 20 hours, making it more concentrated than iced coffee, which is brewed hot and poured over ice.
