Following a successful test at its concept store in Seattle, Starbucks is rolling out ice cream at more than 100 stores across the U.S.
The Italian-inspired affogatos debuted at the chain’s Seattle Roastery store in June. It includes a scoop of ice cream with espresso poured over the top. Business Insider said the item was a top-five seller.
Starbucks unveiled a menu of affogatos inspired by the success at 100 stores in Orange County, California. They are: the classic affogato, tall cold brew, and tall cold brew malts.
A more upscale “Roastery Affogato” menu will be available at 10 of the Reserve locations in Los Angeles, Washington, D.C., and Boston, Business Insider reported. The main difference being that the drinks will use small-lot cold brews instead of Starbucks’ Narino 70 cold brew, which will be mixed with chocolate bitters in both cases. The Cold Brew Malt will cost $8.50 at the Reserve stores, while the most expensive item at the Orange County locations will run $6.40 for a cold brew malt.
