Weird new coffee trend has people adding beef jerky to their drinks

Who doesn't love a nice hot cuppa? Well, turns out a lot of people don't like it when it's combined with the latest food trend, beef jerky!

Starbucks’ Seattle Roastery has tried out a new concept of dunking beef jerky into the top of the coffee... But we're not entirely sure why.

'Our inspiration was centered around the characteristics of the Congo coffee,' says Raegan Powell, from the Starbucks research and development team.

'The sweet and herbal spice notes naturally paired well with savoury ingredients.'

'With the first sip, you get a hint of the honey cold foam and the aroma of the pink ground peppercorn. The real surprise is the salty savoriness of the jerky garnish, an exciting complement to the smooth and sweet finish of the nitro cold brew experience.'

Thanks, but we might pass on this one.
