Starbucks Lingo is an important part of the Starbucks Coffee culture and defines the way in which the company labels its drinks and the terms used when ordering a beverage. As such, placing an order at a Starbucks Coffee can be a daunting experience for first-timers. That is where this article comes into play as it will attempt to shed light on some of these unfamiliar expressions.
Madami sa mainet at malamig na drinks sa starbucks coffee shop ay may halong ‘shots of espresso’. Kaya important na malaman kung anu ang espresso at anu ang epekto nito sa mga order natin.
In layman terms, espresso is extremely strong and condensed coffee, which forms the basis of many popular coffee-based drinks; such as cappuccinos and lattes. Starbucks Coffee stores use automatic espresso bars that grind coffee beans and prepare the espresso shots for use – machines are adjusted throughout the day for quality.
Ang single shot of espresso contains roughly 75mg of caffeine, it is always safe to overestimate that figure especially if one is sensitive to caffeine. Alternatively, simply order the drink with a mixture of caffeinated and decaffeinated espresso or simply as wholly decaffeinated.
|One shot (30ml)||Single/Solo||About 75mg|
|Two shots (60ml)||Double/Doppio||About 150mg|
|Three shots (90ml)||Triple||About 225mg|
|Four shots (120ml)||Quad||About 300mg|
|One shot decaf (30ml)||Single/Solo Decaf||About 3mg|
|One shot half-caf (30ml)||Single/Solo Half-Caf||About 40 mg|
Regular coffee drinkers who thrive on caffeine may opt for more than one espresso shot in their drink. As seen in the table above, Starbucks Coffee shops cater to such needs and may be ordered using the terms single/solo, double/doppio, triple etc.
SIZE OF DRINK
Before deciding on which drink to order, it is a good idea to determine the size that is required. Unlike traditional naming conventions like ‘small’, ‘medium’ and ‘large’, Starbucks Coffee mixes traditional coffee terminology with Italian, resulting in sizes that are labeled as ‘short’, ‘tall’, ‘grande’, ‘venti’ and ‘trenta’.
For the sake of familiarity, consider the Starbucks Coffee sizes as follows:
- Short (extra small)
- Tall (small)
- Grande (medium)
- Venti (large)
- Trenta (extra large)
Although similar, hot and cold drinks are available in slightly different sizes. Warm drink are only available in short, tall, grande and venti, whereas cold drinks forgo the short size for the very large trenta.
- Short – 1 shot of espresso
- Tall – 1 shot of espresso
- Grande – 2 shots of espresso
- Venti (hot) – 2 shots of espresso
- Venti (iced) – 3 shots of espresso
PLACING AN ORDER
Ordering from Starbucks Coffee is generally a very easy and pleasant experience. Using the information above, however, will make placing orders even easier; baristas and regular customers will appreciate the quick and thoughtful responses too.
