Coffee house chain Starbucks announced the release of a cold-pressed espresso shot in the company’s Reserve Roastery located in its hometown of Seattle. According to the brand, it’s “a concentrated, smooth tasting shot of cold-pressed espresso” formed in an exclusive cold extraction process to create a unique and patent-pending drink.

Kevin Johnson, Starbucks president and CEO said, “this new technique is the next step in our cold coffee journey and the perfect ingredient to design a menu of cold espresso or coffee options. We believe the opportunities are limitless.” Starbucks explains that the Seattle Roastery will “serve as a pipeline of innovation for other locations.”
