The barista also said that instead of making the coffee ice in-house, it comes pre-made and employees have to break it apart into cubes for orders.

When the weather starts warming up, nothing's better than an ice-cold drink. But avid iced coffee and cold brew drinkers can vouch for that watered down taste when you sip on your drink a little too long and end up with a beverage diluted by melted ice cubes.
