Starbucks tries a new way of making coffee over in Japan, where the new White Brew Coffee & Macadamia Frappuccino features “white coffee” made by soaking coffee beans in milk for 14 hours.
The process sounds similar to cold brewing, where coffee grounds are steeped in cold or room temperature water for typically eight or more hours.
According to the chain, the oils on the surface of the coffee beans transfer to the milk and imparts it with a coffee flavor.
The white coffee is then blended with ice and candied macadamia nuts and topped with whipped cream and a sprinkle of brown sugar.
The tall White Brew Coffee and Macadamia Frappuccino, though, has just 13 milligrams of caffeine, a practically negligible amount, making it a great choice for satisfying your coffee-flavor cravings if you still want to keep your caffeine intake down.
The chain is also offering a new Moussed Foam Latte in the country. The drink is available hot of iced and comes topped off with a mousse made with non-fat milk.
