Here’s good news for fans of superior-tasting iced coffee: Starbucks is secretly trying out cold brew at a handful of Boston-area stores, reports StarbucksMelody. It’s only supposed to last a couple of weeks, but customers can snag single-origin Ethiopia made in the popular Toddy cold brewer that’s also sold in its stores. Unlike the other ways that the chain has tried inching into third-wave coffee — the Clover machine, pour-overs — this one probably has broader appeal, so scaling it for those hot summer days will be the trick.
