Starbucks has come up with a solution to watery iced coffee: coffee ice cubes, which it is testing in 100 stores in St. Louis and Baltimore.

The test will run for up to eight weeks, and the coffee cubes will cost 80 cents extra, Starbucks spokesperson Holly Shafer told USA Today. They also will increase the amount of caffeine in iced coffee drinks.

The cubes are Starbucks’ attempt to prevent iced coffee drinks from becoming watered down as the ice melts quickly during the hot summer months, especially when people drink them outside.

If the test goes well, the coffee ice cubes could be available in all Starbucks stores sometime in the future.

Iced coffee fans are hopeful the cubes will stick around longer than the now-famous Unicorn Frappuccinos from last month. Some took to Twitter to express their joy at the new development.
