Only Some Costcos Have This Special Food Court Feature
No two Costco warehouses are exactly alike, of course. Right now some products are leaving and others are just being launched. The food court is changing, too—did someone mention a potential new chicken sandwich? But while a few Costcos have one frothy, customizable feature, others don't.

Reddit user Mardueno recently posted about a Kirkland Signature Coffee Machine in a Costco warehouse in Redmond, Wash. It serves House Blend, Espresso Blend, or Colombian Blend coffee for $1, or a Cafe Hazelnut, Cafe Mocha, Cafe Vanilla, or Hot Chocolate for $1.25. Cups, lids, and straws are usually stashed in the machine as well, but a sign on this one says they are available at the counter (similar to another pandemic rule Costco is still enforcing).
For those that have had the opportunity to try one of the options, it's nothing but good reviews. Customers say it rivals a cup you can get at an actual coffee house in both taste and price (minus the cost of a Costco membership, of course). "They make a really nice vanilla mocha," one says, adding that it's "Way cheaper and better than Starbucks."
But if you can't find the machine at your local Costo, you're not alone. Unfortunately, another user says it is only available at a few locations—and is likely to stay that way. "These are only available at a few locations company wide, and have been for years," one Reddit user commented. "There are currently no plans on expanding these beyond the current warehouses."
