I haven't discovered this until recently, being a Starbucks girl, but as my bro-in-law is a strict Coffee Bean n" Tea Leaf guy, I found myself at our local Coffee Bean, and naturally asked for my favorite - just a cup of ice.IT IS AWESOME!
Coffee Bean ice comes in tiny round little balls, slightly smaller than the tip of my pinky - Perfect
for crunching. Also, I've got a weird habit of trying to half-swallow small bits of ice and catching it at the back of my throat. These tiny ices are PERFECT for it. They also melt nicely, when I don't feel like crunching and want to just dissolve some in my mouth for a bit, and since their so tiny I've no worries of getting too-large a piece and getting a brain freeze. The BEST
bit? Coffee Bean will give you a large cup for free! Or at least, our local one will. I've been back several times for just a cup, and they've never charged. I usually encourage my husband to buy a drink also, so they are still receiving SOME
profit from my repeat patronage but if he's disinclined or not around they have never begrudged me even their largest cup full of ice totally free.
