Nearly everyone has enjoyed a nice cup of coffee at Starbucks at one point in their lives. It’s a common go-to coffee shop that offers quality brew at a decent price. Every customer has their special drink they like to order and claims to be a Starbucks expert. However, not many people understand the nuances of ordering at this coffee chain.
A former employee has revealed a list of things to remember about ordering at Starbucks, and even the biggest fans should heed her advice. Here is a list of the top 12 tips and tricks for ordering from your local Starbucks!
12. The Temperature Isn’t Perfect
11. What Do Different Color Aprons Mean?
The color of an employee’s apron actually means something. Regular employees will sport the green apron while holiday hires will wear the not-so-attractive brown apron. If you want your coffee made by a true professional, ask the person wearing the black apron as they have attended seminars and training courses and have practically made it an art form.
10. Leave Your Drama At The Door
Not giving a barista attitude should be a no-brainer. Not giving ANYONE who handles your food a bad attitude should be ingrained in the brain of every consumer. You never know when you are going to push that barista to the limit where they might decide to spit, or worse, in your hot coffee. Before we go to #9, know what you want to order!
9. Know What You Want
It is common courtesy to know exactly what you want when you get to the front of the line. It’s something the customers behind you, who are craving their caffeine, will appreciate. And it will also save some blank stares you receive from the barista who is patiently waiting for you to decide what you should have decided minutes ago.
