7-Eleven has bolstered their usual hot and cold coffee offerings with espresso, lattes, cappuccinos, nitro cold brew and more, along with all manner of syrups, creamers and toppings. So far Orlando and Long Island, New York are the two test markets for this new menu, before it goes national.
So is 7-Eleven hiring in-store baristas too? Nope. That's all you, buddy. All of this is going to provided automat-style, with touchscreen machines and tap levers for you to craft your own custom coffee drink.
And participating stores will be sticking to the usual price point, where cost is determined by size of the cup rather than the type of the drink. So be a champion and get a Big Gulp of espresso.
