Looking for some new ideas for your next trip to Starbucks? Check out what the baristas like to order. In a recent online discussion, Starbucks baristas share the regular favorites that they enjoy during their shirts. You’ll need to take notes to order some of these concoctions.
Blonde Roast with 2 Honey and 3 Oatmilk
The 3 oat milk created discussion amongst the baristas. “What is 3 oat milk??” one person questioned.
The consensus is 3 oat milk means ¾ inch oat milk as each button push is ¼ inch.
Passion Tea Lemonade With Half Pumps of Raspberry
Some baristas choose water as their go-to drink while working with a personal preference for ice or no ice.
Tall Iced Doppio With Two Pumps of Vanilla and a Little Splash of Vanilla Sweet Cream
Doppio is Italatian for double. When you order a doppio, you’ll get two shots of espresso.
At Starbucks, the Tall size doppio is three shots, and the Venti is a whopping five shots.
Triple Blonde Espresso Con Panna With 1 Pump Mocha, Caramel Drizzle
The barista included specific instructions for making this drink. Due to the complexity, they only order it when they can make it themselves.
They say they make it “upside down sorta (while first them shots onto affogato style.”
Con Panna means the espresso will be topped with whipped cream. And affogato means the espresso shots are on top of the whipped cream.
Venti Iced Americano With Extra Ice
The official name of this cold espresso at Starbucks is Iced Caffè Americano.
Iced Black Tea With Vanilla and Raspberry
Another barista that’s disappointed with raspberry syrup being removed from the Starbucks menu.
Grande BSO Shaken Espresso, No Cinnamon
BSO is short for Brown Suger Oatmilk. By default, this drink is topped with cinnamon.
Tall Iced Chai With Extras
Iced chai is a black tea with spices combined with milk and ice.
This barista likes it in a specific way: “2 pumps brown sugar, single blonde shot, made with oat milk, light ice, pistachio cold foam, and cinnamon powder on top.”
Triple Tall Flat White
What makes this espresso different is the ristretto technique. The barista pulls only the first portion of a full-length espresso shot, changing the taste and texture.
The Triple means you will be asking for three shots of espresso.
The standard Coffee Frappuccino is a blend of Frappuccino and milk.
One barista has their own way of making it: “...with cold brew instead of the frap roast, with a couple of pumps of toffee nut and steamed lemonade+honey blend, diluted with some water so it's less sour.”
Black Iced Coffee
Not every barista is a fan of drinks full of sugar and prefers Starbucks’ classic coffee blend with ice.
They shared they are “Sick of all the sugar, especially after preparing and serving it.”
