What to say when ordering Starbucks?
You’ll want to use the Starbucks lingo:
- Short: 8 oz.
- Tall: 12 oz.
- Grande: 16 oz.
- Venti (Hot): 20 oz.
- Venti (Cold): 24 oz. (The extra room is to accommodate the ice.)
- Trenta: 31 oz.
How do I order a Starbucks sample? Here are some examples: “I would like a for here, triple (amount of shots) Grande (size) , Vanilla (syrup flavor), 2 percent (kind of milk you want), extra hot with whip (you want whipped cream) Mocha (your type of drink), please?” “Could I please have a half-caf Venti, sugar-free Vanilla, with room, Americano?”
How do you order regular coffee with cream and sugar at Starbucks? For ordering basic coffee, beyond specifying the size you want, you will need to tell the server whether you want regular or decaffeinated coffee. If you do not say decaf, they will assume that you want regular. If you intend to add cream or milk to your coffee, say with room for cream, or simply, with room.
What’s an upside down shot at Starbucks? Selecting this shot means that your espresso drink will be made in reverse and not the standard way. That means that the barista will pour the espresso shot on top of the milk rather than before the milk. The most popular and common upside down espresso shot is used in caramel macchiatos at Starbucks.
