Why Iced Coffee might be much Stronger this year?


Are you a fan of Iced Coffee?

Rebel Nation Listen: for some of you, Spring time is the start of the year where running outside, barbecues, and days out in the sun become the norm. But for you coffee addicts, it means one thing – Iced Coffee time!!

And this year, a little birdie on the other side of the world told me: there’s big news on the iced coffee game.  So I was thinking okay, there must be a new fruity flavour that’s not so sweet and you still get the caffeine kick for the day. But NO!

I actually heard that a big coffee chain are going to test a stronger formula in god knows how many stores. And adding Coffee Ice Cubes –  could be the secret game changer!!

“The taste is stronger and it is with coffee ice cubes.” 

The idea is not exactly new – as you can easily do it at home. But lets be fair here (because I’m not a Big chain fan), you won’t find many places using coffee ice cubes (most independent cafes in London don’t.) So it’s very interesting to find out that the first to sell them could be the biggest coffee chain of all.

I don’t know how the word got out but I am sure it will make the Frappuccino’s taste much better.  So apparently they will test the coffee cubes in several shop locations in the states (it had to be America right), and if all goes well it could be on the menu.

So If I do happen to visit a Starbucks one day (because I accidently fell into the café) I will have to ask the barista if they can sort that out for me! And for all you American readers, do let me know if the high octane coffee cubes are happening right now!!! I’d love to know what you think, and if you are using it as the ideal PRE-Workout beverage!


That’s it from me and as always #livebetter

    This is interesting. My friend and I were actually thinking about serving iced coffee exactly the same way for weekend brunch and now I am totally positive about it.

    Love the sound of Iced coffee being served like this. Ice coffee, for me, is a summer essential so there’s going to be no difference with that this summer! xx

    I love iced coffee and had no idea that there was even such a thing as coffee ice cubes. I always find they make my drinks too weak when they put ice so having coffee infused ice cubes is such a good idea x

    It’s about time they use coffee ice cubes! It’s such a waste when my coffee gets watered down and less flavor-packed.

    My husband is the coffee fan at our house and in the summer he definitely reaches for iced coffee. I’ve never thought to make coffee ice cubes, but it’s genius. No doubt there will be some in our freezer soon!

    I’m with you. I am very curious to the iced coffee cubes that they are going to be doing. Although I had a friend used to do that with homemade coffee. I did like it because it made things cooler and stronger.

    Ice coffee is my favorite in summers! These coffee infused cubes sound amazing. I made an ice cube with flavored vodka last month for a home party and it was a great hit!

    Personally, I’ve never been much of a coffee drinker, but I can see the use of coffee cubes as a game changer. Just for the thrill, I’m actually going to see if I can get my hands on a cup with some high octane cubes once I get back to the states!

    Actually I don’t know if they’re doing that here in the states. Most times I go to a coffeeshop it’s for ice tea.
