Starbucks works up a foamy lather with the introduction of a new topping option: cold foam.

While steamed foam has been an option at Starbucks going back to the 1980s, cold foam is a modern twist on the classic especially designed for cold beverages.
The new topping option is frothed cold by blending nonfat milk until it is smooth, creating layers of creamy texture and flavor without the cream.
The chain is featuring cold foam in three beverages: Cold Foam Cascara Cold Brew, Cold Foam Cascara Nitro Cold Brew (where Nitro is available) and Cold Foam Starbucks Blonde Iced Cappuccino.
Cold Foam Cascara Cold Brew: Starbucks Cold Brew, lightly sweetened with vanilla syrup and topped with cascara cold foam and a strike of cascara topping.
Cold Foam Cascara Nitro Cold Brew: Nitro Cold Brew without ice and topped with the subtly sweet cascara cold foam and cascara topping.
Cold Foam Starbucks Blonde Iced Cappuccino: Starbucks Blonde Espresso shots poured over ice with a splash of nonfat milk and topped with cold foam.
Cold foam first made its debut in 2014 at the Reserve Roastery in Seattle, and has also been a feature in select Starbucks Reserve coffee bars. It’s now available at participating Starbucks stores in the U.S. and Canada.
Additionally, fans can also ask to add a dollop of cold foam to their favorite iced beverages, featuring strawless lids, allowing fans to savor the velvety cold foam with every sip.
