Nitro Cold Brew
Much like a nitrogenated stout at your favorite hipster pub, this is a cold brew from a tap with a nitro boost.
With that slight tingle of almost-carbonation, Starbucks' nitrogenated cold brew is pretty damn good. It's dark and smooth, almost taking on the consistency of coffee with cream, except without the cream. It's a rich coffee flavor with a nice "head" of crema on top. It's more a step toward a local coffee house's focus on delivering the flavor of good beans rather than the caramel, chocolate, vanilla sweetness of a lot of Starbucks best drinks (not unlike when they made the flat white a permanent menu item).
Like the Vanilla Sweet Cream Cold Brew, it's also a visually appealing pour. Keep in mind, however, it only starts a roll out in Seattle and Portland for now, and will slowly move into stores in New York, Chicago, Boston, San Francisco and Los Angeles. By the end of the summer, Starbucks anticipates the Nitro Cold Brew to be in more than 500 stores, making the coffee giant the largest purveyor of Nitro cold brews in the world.
