The coffee chain crafted an experimental cold coffee beverage using beef jerky and pepper as ingredients

At Starbucks Reserve Roastery in Seattle, customers can try a new unique beverage called the Pepper Nitro. This cold coffee drink is served with black pepper syrup, and the barista adds a bamboo skewer to the top with a slice of beef jerky hanging for garnish.

The cold refreshment uses Starbucks Congo Lake Kuvi coffee beans and is served to customers through a nitro tap. The concept came from Starbucks wanting to celebrate its relationship with coffee farmers who operate in the Democratic Republic of Congo. The area had suffered from years of war before a peace treaty was signed in 2013.

The Pepper Nitro beverage was released on July 31 and remains available for a limited time exclusively at the Seattle Reserve Roastery.
