This Is How You Should Format Your Complicated Starbucks Order

March 10, 2016 by Isabel Jones

Starbucks is a busy place. Once I stood in a line for a semi-urgent 11 am fix and counted 35 people ahead of me! SERIOUSLY. Considering the ridiculous product demand, it’s safe to assume that not every order placed will be to the customer’s liking. The other day I ordered a slice of banana bread and got a banana muffin in a bag labeled ‘Banana Bread.’ Mistakes are made, it’s only human. But when it comes to your first caffeine intake of the day, small mistakes can be pretty intolerable.

To avoid as many oversights as possible, you should place your drink order in this chronological format:

Temperature (Hot or Iced)

Size (Tall, Grande, Venti, Treinta)

Decaf (If you so please…)

Number of shots

Number of pumps of syrup

Extras

Drink Type

Weird, you’re supposed to bury the lead and specify the type of drink at the end of the order!

The reason you should order in this way is that it follows the column of boxes that line your Starbucks’ cup, giving your precious drink its best shot at accuracy. Of course, these rules need only apply if your drink has several specifications. It would be pretty strange to order an Iced Grande Decaf Iced Coffee, so exercise your best judgement!
