Nothing kills a buzz faster than watered-down iced coffee on a hot summer day.

According to Cosmopolitan, Starbucks is testing ice made of coffee at select locations.

For an extra 80 cents, you won't have to worry about your Starbucks coffee getting watered down. Of course, if the test doesn't expand - or you don't live in St. Louis or Baltimore - you could just make coffee ice at home. But if the reactions on social media so far are any indication, you might soon find these pellets of goodness at a 'bucks near you.

Customers that want to add coffee ice cubes to their drinks from Starbucks Corporation will have to pay an little extra.

For what its worth, though, even people who tout themselves as Starbucks employees are impressed with the news. If the coffee ice proves popular with consumers, we could see a more widespread roll out in the future. We're intrigued, to say the least. The more coffee, the better.

"It's one of several tests going on", Shafer told ABC News. The process is as simple as using 16 oz of its Espresso Roast to fill an ice cube tray and then put it in the freezer, Fortune notes.
