Beginning on Tuesday, April 17, Starbucks is offering a new way to enjoy its iced coffee beverages. The company has developed a “cold foam” to mimic the steamed milk customers get with hot beverages.

Cold Foam is made by blending nonfat milk until it is smooth, creating layers of creamy texture and flavor without the cream. It has been available at the Starbucks Reserve Roastery in Seattle since December of 2014, but it will now be available to customers nationwide and in Canada.

Cold Foam is offered in three new beverages, in addition to being an add-on to any iced drink on the menu for an additional fifty cents:

  • Cold Foam Cascara Cold Brew – Starbucks Cold Brew, lightly sweetened with vanilla syrup and topped with cascara cold foam and a strike of cascara topping, adding notes of brown sugar and maple without overpowering the smooth coffee flavor of cold brew
  • Cold Foam Cascara Nitro Cold Brew – Nitro Cold Brew without ice and topped with the subtly sweet cascara cold foam and cascara topping
  • Cold Foam Starbucks Blonde Iced Cappuccino - Made with Starbucks Blonde Espresso shots poured over ice with a splash of nonfat milk and topped with cold foam

The beverages are served with strawless lids, allowing customers enjoy the taste of cold foam with every sip.
