Coffee drinkers unite.

Starbucks is adding a new drink that will not only give us a huge caffeine buzz, but it might also cool us off when the Texas heat gets cranked up this summer.

Oh, and does that secret menu really exist?

There are two types of coffee drinkers, right?  Those of us who like it hot and those of us who want it cold.  And if you go back and forth between the two depending on your mood, you might also wear a lot of gray clothing.  Iced coffee drinkers, this one is for you!

Starbucks is adding a new Toasted Coconut Cold Brew, and it was inspired by a drink called jalao, a treat made with coconut shavings and honey that is most commonly found in the Dominican Republic.

You can find Toasted Coconut Cold Brew at participating locations in the US and Canada for a limited time.

Oh, and here’s the all-important nutritional Information.  Not many calories so you can eat more later.

There’s been a lot of chatter lately about the Starbucks “Secret Menu,” but does it really exist?  One barista says no, and it’s one of those things that might make the rounds on the internet, but the baristas really have no clue how to make those drinks when you order them.  There is no official secret menu apparently.   So it’s better to stick with things like the Venti Iced Skinny Vanilla Latte Extra Shot Light Ice No Whip, and other obnoxious orders off the real menu.

All of this sounds good.  If you’re getting the shakes right now looking for the closest Starbucks, let me save you a Google.
