want some ice cream with your coffee at @starbucks?

Starbucks is releasing a new idea that mixes coffee and ice cream.
Per CBS:”The Seattle chain said it will serve “affogato” varieties of hot or cold coffee over ice cream at 100 stores in Orange County, California, starting Wednesday, with pricier versions sold at 10 locations with its “reserve” bars. Spokeswoman Holly Hart Shafer said the treats were first introduced at the company’s Roastery store in Seattle, which is a pipeline for potential new menu items” (2017.)
Apparently “affogato” means “drowned” in Italian. So, I am guessing that it is drouned in the ice cream?
The one that will cost the most is 12 oz, has ice cream mixed with cold brew coffee, and costs $6.45.
Starbucks Corp. has successfully driven up sales over the years in part by introducing pricier new items. Would you get it?
