Starbucks Bottled Cold Brew Review

We've Deemed This the Best New Bottled Starbucks Beverage on the Market

Over the last year, Starbucks cold brew has become an instant fan favorite. So much so, the company announced back in March that it would release a bottled version made with the same blend of Latin American and African coffee beans that the stores use in its cold brew. Well, the wait is over! Starbucks sent us a few bottles to try for ourselves and let's just say, our tasters went crazy for the stuff. First off, the unsweetened black coffee has a sweet scent, reminiscent of Pike's Place coffee. It tastes chocolatey, nutty, and caramel-like with a supersmooth, clean aftertaste. Since there's no bitter flavor or finish, you won't find yourself craving cream or sugar. It's good. Really good. Maybe even the best bottled Starbucks beverage yet! Although most of the reviews were positive, a few thought the dark roasted beans made the cold brew taste slightly burnt. If you're a fan of blonde roasts, you may want to skip this stuff.
