It's not uncommon to find the occasional dish that is topped with jerky, but it is almost unheard of to come across a beverage that can boast the same kind of finishing touches. However, the Starbucks Reserve Roastery in Seattle is a place where a new specialty beverage can be found—the Pepper Nitro with a Jerky Twist.
The specialty coffee beverage boasts a base of Starbucks Reserve Eastern D.R. Congo Lake Kivu coffee that is "slow-steeped as cold brew and served on draft through a nitro tap." The beverage also includes a malted fennel black pepper syrup that is at once sweet and savory, as well as a layer of "layer of honey cold foam and finished with a sprinkling of cracked pink peppercorn." True to its name, the nitro coffee is topped off with a skewer that includes a piece of grass-fed beef jerky.
