Have You Switched to Iced Coffee?

Spring was teasing us for awhile, but it seems to be here to stay. We celebrated with an Iced Cocoa Cappuccino (in a new-logo cup!) from Starbucks. What exactly is a Cocoa Cappuccino? (Why not just call it an iced mocha?) It seems that the "bittersweet mocha sauce" isn't stirred into the beverage, so you get a layer of chocolate under the iced espresso, and the whole thing is capped off with foam. It's not too sweet, which is especially nice on the first real hot day of the year.

Have you switched to iced coffee yet? Do you start your day with a hot cup and follow with a cold pick-me-up in the afternoon? Or do you stick with steaming coffee year round?
