This is because brewed coffees and cold brews are made in large batches by baristas, and iced coffee and cold brew aren't made decaffeinated for lack of demand. However, every Starbucks iced espresso drink can be made with Starbucks decaf espresso, which has little to no caffeine in each shot (check out our information on the nutritional facts).

Tip For Ordering In Store & On The Starbucks App

Starbucks Decaf Iced Coffee Nutritional Facts 

By adding chocolate sprinkles and whipped cream to your order, you know that it isn't very healthy. However, there are quick and healthy alternatives for everyone.

A decaf Iced Caffè Americano is the best choice if you want a quick iced decaf coffee without syrups and creams. One tall serving of this will give you 11 calories, as coffee itself is naturally very low in calories. 

Another alternative to a healthy drink is the Starbucks new Iced Decaf Shaken Espresso. It’s pretty much the same drink as a Doubleshot on Ice (no longer listed on the menu). A tall serving of this drink is simply 80 calories.

We recommend staying away from whipped creams and sugar-loaded syrups if you’re ordering your decaf iced coffee from Starbucks every day.

Keep these added extras for a cheat day, as the more you add, the more calories your drink will have. For example, the Starbucks Iced Cinnamon Dolce Latte has 300 calories and over 35 grams of sugar.
