How Much Does Starbucks Spiced Sweet Cream Narino 70 Cold Brew Cost? Get Your Holiday Cheer On For Under $5

Prepare yourself, coffee lovers, because I have some exciting news for you: Holiday cold brew is here, so get ready to make room in that gift budget to treat yo' self. Just how much does Starbucks' Spiced Sweet Cream Narino 70 Cold Brew cost? Joining the venerable stable of Starbucks seasonal drinks, this chilly beverage clocks in at about the same price as its hot comrades, leaving plenty of spare change for stocking stuffers. If it seems a tad oxymoronic for a toasty winter drink to be (gasp!) cold, a sip of this festive beverage will change even the Grinchiest skeptic's mind.

The autumnal leaves are turning orange and Thanksgiving is fast approaching, but outside still feels like a summer day. If you're not quite ready to warm your hands on an Eggnog Latte, the Spiced Sweet Cream Cold Brew can give you holiday cheer even in 70 degree weather. (Hear that, West Coasters? This one's for you!) With 140 mg of caffeine in each 12-ounce Tall spiced cold brew, the new drink also will add way more pep to your step than other beverages on the seasonal list — making it an excellent choice for those looking to fight off that after post-Thanksgiving turkey stupor! For those looking to avoid caffeine, sadly, the new drink does not come in decaf, but Peppermint Hot Chocolate's always make a nice substitute.

Just like Starbucks' Vanilla Sweet Cream Cold Brew, this new seasonal treat begins with a base of Starbucks' cold brew. The Narino 70 cold brew is made in small batches daily using a custom blend of 70 percent Columbia Narino and 30 percent African beans. The beans slowly steep in cold water for 20 hours, which produces a concentrated coffee that's flavorful without any unpleasant bitterness. As a taste tester for Mic described, Starbucks cold brew is "smooth, rich, almost chocolatey." Cold brew not only tastes better than hot coffee, but it is less acidic and more easily tolerated by your stomach. What's not to like?

To give the rich coffee a seasonal makeover, your barista then spices things up with classic holiday flavors such as cinnamon, anise, nutmeg, and vanilla, topping the concoction off with a dollop of house-made sweet cream, which then cascades down the cup.

Sounds pretty good, right?

But back to our original question: The price. A Tall Spiced Sweet Cream Narino 70 Cold Brew beverage will cost you about $3.25 to $4.25, depending on the market, so you may want to factor that in for your weekly coffee allowance. Starbucks Rewards members get a sneak preview of the new drink as early as Nov. 3; however, non-members will have to wait till later in November when the beverage officially hits participating stores across the United States and Canada. You know what they say: Coffee is a girl's best friend — and everyone else's for that matter, too!
