Starbucks Nitro Cold Brew Coffee is available at most Starbucks stores around the country after a successful 500 store trial of their new nitrogen infused cold brew.

By infusing their Nariño Cold Brew with nitrogen gas it creates a velvety froth for a creamy texture on the tongue.

Infusing coffee with nitrogen gas has been an increasingly popular beverage trend and Starbucks is capitalizing on this trend. 

Served Black or with Sweet Cream

Here's how the caffeine stacks up in the two sizes of nitro cold brew Starbucks offers.

Black

  • Tall: 230 mg
  • Grande: 325mg

With Sweet Cream

  • Tall: 215 mg
  • Grande: 280 mg

Note: As of August 2017 Starbucks has these amounts switched on their website, showing sweet cream nitro to have more caffeine than black. However, this makes no sense since there would be less actual cold brew coffee in the cup to save room for the sweet cream poured on top. We have contacted Starbucks about this error.

Starbucks Nitro Cold Brew is served without ice so it contains more caffeine than their traditional iced cold brew per cup size.

My Review

I recently tried the sweet cream version of Starbucks Nitro and was really impressed. It is a great tasting product and the sweet cream adds just a subtle sweetness unlike the overly sweet traditional iced cold brew with sweet cream.

The velvety texture was enjoyable, the flavor was smooth and nonacidic, and the heavy caffeine dose was definitely noticeable. 

Overall this beverage is a great addition to the Starbucks lineup.

Where I live, some stores have it, others don't but I believe a full roll out is in process. Starbucks Nitro Cold Brew Coffee should be in most corporate-run stores soon.
