Starbucks Coffee Master Creates the Espresso Cloud IPA

That sweet spot where espresso meets craft beer…
Espresso Cloud IPA


A shot of espresso is poured over the beer, creating a “tantalizing, layered waterfall of espresso and craft beer in the glass.”

The latest handcrafted innovation from Starbucks combines espresso and craft beer to create the Espresso Cloud IPA.

This first-of-its-kind Starbucks beverage was developed by coffee master Justin Burns-Beach, who worked as a Starbucks barista in Phoenix for eight years before moving to Seattle and working at the Starbucks Reserve Roastery & Tasting Room.

Burns-Beach describes the Espresso Cloud IPA as “a truly interactive and unique beverage experience.”

“Espresso is shaken over ice with orange pieces and a touch of sweet vanilla. Shaking the espresso produces a rich cloud of micro-foam with accents of citrus and vanilla. The foam is layered on top of a freshly poured IPA, and the beer is served with the cold-shaken espresso shot on the side,” a release detailed.

When the shot is poured over the beer, it “creates a tantalizing, layered waterfall of espresso and craft beer in the glass.”

The Espresso Cloud IPA is available exclusively at Starbucks Evenings locations.
