I have previously mentioned my love of personalized Starbucks drinks. One of my new favorites this summer is compliments of some of my lovely friends back on the Rock who spent a good chunk of their undergrad perfecting their Frappuccino orders. The bought me my first one before I left. You should try one too. Just saying.
Get a Chai Frappuccino. Sounds simple enough… But no… They modify it. Get a Chai Frappuccino, double Chai, double blend and with dolce sprinkles. This results in a smoother, more chai filled cup of deliciousness. Do it.
This, just so you know is the only drink that I now order regularly in this specific a manner (really, I often skip the double blend because I don’t mind the ice bits, but it does make a difference).
I have never worked in a coffee shop, but I wonder sometimes if it is a bit bothersome when people get so particular. I know, it is your job, but are there days when you just don’t feel it and the particular people annoy you? On the other hand, I think it would be fun to be a chemist/scientist sort of person, but with coffee.
My only conclusion is that when you need to make that much effort to order a drink, it has to taste like said effort. I would start doing that more often, but then I would have to remember another formula and be that specific. Honestly, I don’t want to take the time or bother. Unless something as truly delicious as this comes along again!
