How to order coffee

When you crave a cup of coffee, the Starbucks menu can seem overwhelming. Non usa nemmeno la parola "semplice" per descrivere una taglia o una miscela. But you can grab a simple cup of coffee – the equivalent of what your neighborhood store might call ordinary – once you break Starbucks’ terminology.

Initially, Starbucks offered two types of drinks: short and tall. The company has since eliminated the short option from its menu, making it tall– somewhat confusedly – thethe smaller menu option. The company also added larger sizes: large, twenty and thirty.

But while the short is no longer printed on store menus, you can still order coffee in this size – Starbucks also lists this size as an option on its website.

Here is the size breakdown for hot drinks:

  • Short:8 oz
  • Tall:12 oz
  • Huge:16 oz
  • Winds:20 oz

For cold drinks, twenty is 24 ounces and trent is 30 ounces.

Start by choosing the correct cup size

Sta a te decidere quale taglia Starbucks è "normale" per te. While 1 cup equals8 oz, the industry standard for a single serving of coffee is 6 ounces — but many folks regularly drink 12 or16 oz at a time. When in doubt, order a tall coffee.

Medium Roast Vs. Dark Roast: you decide

This is where things get a little complicated. A typical Starbucks has at least two types of hot coffee available at any given time. Roasted pikeè la loro opzione di coffee standard – è la tostatura media che viene prodotta everything il giorno – quindi è l’equivalente Starbucks del sapore "normale" del coffee.

Your shop may also have a dark roast option. Hot coffee is usually brewed right behind the cash registers and the machines have plates with ready-made types of coffee.

You also have the option of decaf pike. It’s not made all day in all Starbucks stores, but if your store isn’t ready, the staff will give you some fresh air if you want to wait.

Ask your bartender for samples if you’re still unsure

Ask the employee at the cashier to try the brewed coffee if you don’t know it. They are trained to help you get the best drink possible.

In caso di dubbio, prova "Clover"

Your local store may also offer the option to order a cup of joe made withClover. This machine is designed to brew individual cups of coffee to make the best possible cup. You will have to wait a few minutes for a drink and you will pay more for it than for a cup of pike. But you’ll also have a larger selection of beans to choose from. The bartender can help you choose.

So now you know the options and can place the order. You can request a sample or discuss Clover options with the bartender at the cashier or simply place an order; for instance, ask for "a short dark roast" or "a tall decaf Pike."

If you want room to add milk or sugar, add"z pokojem" until the end of the order. Look for a station equipped with silver jugs and sweeteners, add sugar or milk and that’s it.

Perfect in the morning, as a midday snack or as an accompaniment to a sweet dessert, not bad for a coffee break!

The perfect first thing in the morning, as a midday snack or to end the evening with a sweet dessert, there is never a bad time for a coffee break. We’ll give you some tips on how to best prepare your coffee so you can get started with the next coffee pot!

How to make coffee

What you need to prepare coffee in a jug:

It doesn’t take long to brew the perfect coffee; in fact, only three things are enough:

  1. Filtered water: Fewer contaminants in the water, less competition for the true flavor of your coffee.
  2. The Right Proportion: Regardless of the type of machine, use two tablespoons of coffee grounds per eight ounces of water, then adjust to your liking from there.
  3. Correct grind: It varies from machine to machine, but in general the more time the coffee grounds spend in contact with water, the coarser the grind will be – and vice versa. Learn more about how to grind coffee beans to suit the type of coffee you are brewing.

Fundamental steps to make the perfect coffee:

Here are the basic steps for making coffee, provided you’re not making it with an automatic espresso machine (if so, follow the manufacturer’s guidelines):

  1. Line the basket of the coffee machine with a filter. Grind the coffee beans to a medium to medium grind. Bring the filtered water to a boil, then let it sit for a minute.
  2. Pour enough water into the filter to wet it completely and let it drain into the cup or coffee pot. Pour in the water.
  3. Measure the ground coffee in the wet filter. Pour in enough water to moisten the ground beans and strain into a cup or coffee pot, then pour in the rest of the water.

If you get the thrill, maybe iced coffee is your jam. See how to make cold coffee.

What is the best coffee maker?

When it comes to coffee machines, personal preference reigns. No production method is necessarily better than another; each espresso machine works differently and may be better suited to a particular need than another. Let’s take a look at the most popular types and find out what each of them do best:

Automatic Flat-Bottom & Automatic Cone

These two are worth looking at side by side as they are very similar preparation methods: the water is poured through the coffee filter and the basket into the carafe. For this method, you can use an automatic coffee machine, or you can manually pour a measure of hot water. Apart from the brand differences, these machines differ only in the shape of the baskets (indicated by their names).

Ideal for:prepare several cups of coffee at the same time with little effort.

the French press

This is a manual brewing process in which the coffee grounds are dipped in hot water and then pressed against the bottom of the machine by pressing the plunger. the French press zaparza filiżankę kawy o najpełniejszym smaku dzięki filtrowi ze stali nierdzewnej. While the paper filter absorbs the natural oils of the coffee (where most of the aroma is retained), the press’s built-in metal filter allows the oils to pass through. Nota: poiché the French press non utilizza un filtro di carta, sul fondo ci saranno dei sedimenti di coffee, quindi lascia quest’ultimo sorso nella tazza.

Ideal for:prepare one to four large cups (depending on the size of the carafe) of full coffee, which will be served immediately.

Automatic golden cone

This machine is similar to an automatic cone, but uses a gold-plated stainless steel filter instead of paper. The golden cone allows the coffee oils to flow through the filter and, like the French press, produces a fuller-tasting coffee (although not as full as the French press).

Ideal for: Brew multiple cups of fuller coffee at the same time with minimal effort. It is a happy compromise between the desire for the French taste of the press and the desire for the convenience of a vending machine.

Now the only question is how are you doingyourCoffee?


Semplicemente non sembra divertente chiedere a un barista cosa c’è nel menu e rischiare di ottenere uno sguardo "duhh".

With Starbucks, holding a mug with a green mermaid logo in your hand translates into style, coolness and status no matter where you are.

For most of us who grow up drinking coffee from packets or getting copies from kopitiam, tackling an endless array of coffee menus seems like a daunting scenario.

We are in a huge dilemma where we think restricted sounds exotic but we don’t want to spend big bucks getting something we don’t like. Sometimes we are shy to ask the barista and risk getting the ‘don’t you know’ look.

So how do you order coffee like a pro?

First, do it right: espresso coffee

An espresso is a type (or subset) of coffee brewed at very high pressure (9 bars) using a coffee machine that produces approximately 30ml of extraction from 7-10g of coffee per shot.

Basically all coffees in our standard coffee shop start with an espresso base.

Espresso – On its own, it is strong, flavourful, sharp and slightly acidic if extracted correctly. Espresso should be drunk quickly while it is hot to enjoy all its flavor.

Long black/Americano – Espresso with water. This is a diluted version of espresso with a higher volume, a good choice if you prefer a more delicate black coffee.

The difference between long black and American is in the cream. For a long darkness, the espresso is extracted directly into the hot water while retaining the foam. The American prepares himself by adding hot water to an espresso.

Ristretto – Espresso with half the extraction hence half the volume. Think of a half size espresso. It is sweeter than a standard espresso without a bitter finish. Coffee connoisseurs say the Ristretto reveals the skill of the barista who prepares it.

They say that having good beans, good roasting, a good machine and a good barista, black coffee tastes better to taste the flavor of its origin. So, if you order coffee to impress, take it into consideration.

Quote to sound professional: Once you go black (coffee) you will never go back.

Caffe latte – Direct translation from Italian means coffee(espresso) withmilk. This is the safest choice of latte coffee with a moderate amount of foam – smooth and easy.

Cappucino – Espresso with milk plus extra thick foam. The traditional Italian Cappuccino is made up of equal parts of espresso, milk and milk froth. It is for those who love frothy and creamy coffee.

Flat white – Espresso with milk and very very little foam. It is said to come from the depths (New Zealand or Australia) only to satisfy the needs of people who don’t like the milk froth in coffee.

Piccolo latte – Basically a mini latte, where there is same amount of espresso but lessermilk. If you like a stronger coffee, but not as strong as an espresso, this is great!

Macchiato – Means ‘stained’ in Italian. It is an espresso with a hint of milky foam that creates a white spot that gives a delicate sweetness to a strong espresso.

Caramel Macchiato – Pure invention by Starbucks. More detailed explanations of the macchiato myth here.

Caffe Con Panna – Espresso topped with whipped cream. Rich and juicy.

Café Mocha – Espresso with milk and chocolate powder or chocolate sauce. When coffee meets chocolate, you get the best of both worlds.

Feel free to explore addition of syrup flavouring, chocolate chips or candy in your coffee. Yoy have the freedom to indulge and get creative with your coffee concoction.

Buying iced coffee or mixed with ice, there’s a reason why Starbucks Frappuccino becomes our wine pleasure.

Go for extra espresso shot in your caffeine fix.

Order your favorite coffee, but choose decaffeinated coffee beans. Find out more about the Swiss Water Decaffeinated process here.

Bottom line – first decide if you want black or milk coffee, then the volume / strength of the coffee (amount of water / milk added to the espresso), then the sweetness (added syrup / sugar / chocolate), if you need an extra shot or decaffeinated; and depending on your mood and weather, decide if you want to get hot or cool down.


At the end of the day, we drink coffee for the beauty of the moment it brings, for the connections it creates and for the good it creates. Just appreciate the cup and find out!

Guide to ordering espresso drinks

If you’re new to espresso, the abundance of options and jargon on your local coffee house menu may be overwhelming. Questa guida ti aiuterà a piazzare i youri ordini di espresso con sicurezza e a scoprire l’entusiasmante mondo dell’espresso. Discover all the drinks you can make with this strong coffee.

What is espresso?

Espresso(es-PRESS-oh) is a concentrated form of coffee with a full flavor, served in shot. Espresso is made by forcing hot water under pressure through finely ground coffee beans. This process is called taking a hit.

Unlike most coffees, espresso has a cream, aromatic, and reddish brown foam that is created when air bubbles combine with finely ground soluble coffee oils. A strong presence of crema indicates a good quality of the ground coffee and a qualified barista (professional machine).

The rapid extraction of Crema and espresso gives the espresso a long and full-bodied aftertaste and reduces the caffeine content to a level below dripping.

  • Each serving of espresso is approximately one ounce.
  • Many stores choose to offer double espresso only (two shots, also known as double) due to quality control issues.
  • Other cafes also offer shot glasses and longs (long draws).

Regardless of the size of the espresso, it is usually poured into a demitasse (a cup with a capacity of 2 to 4 ounces).


Ways to order the express

Use these terms for the most common espresso-only drinks:

  • I shoot: A cup of espresso (about one ounce) prepared at normal strength.
  • Double (DOH-siku-OH):Double in Italian it means double, which means you want a double espresso. This is the standard size of an espresso in many coffee shops.
  • American coffee: An espresso combined with enough hot water to fill a six-ounce cup. Americano was reportedly invented by European baristas for American soldiers during World War II to mimic Americans’ favorite American coffee. It is popular in Italy after dinner. In the U. S., many consume it with milk and/or sugar throughout the day.
  • Long (LOON-goh):A "long" pull(extraction) of espresso made with the same amount of finely ground coffee and twice the water of a normal shot. One serving is approximately two ounces. It may look similar to Café Americano, but its unique treatment results in a different flavor. It has a less pronounced taste because it contains more water. It also has more bitterness as the extraction process takes longer and extracts more bitterness from the coffee grounds. If over-extracted, it tastes bitter and metallic.
  • Red eyes: A cup of filtered coffee with an espresso. It’s sometimes called a "Hammerhead" or "I shoot in the Dark." Le variazioni includono "Black Eye", che consiste in due colpi di coffee espresso, e "Dead Eye", che consiste in tre colpi.
  • .Restricted (ree-STREH-toe): A smaller and more concentrated portion of espresso. Ristretto is characterized by a more intense flavor and body and less bitterness. It can be ordered as a single (approximately 0.75 ounces) or double (approximately 1.5 ounces).

What is latte coffee?

Coffee with milk(kah-FAY LAH-tay) the rules vary widely. The general definition of this popular drink is a double espresso at the bottom of a heated cup or mug, topped with milk prepared for filling and garnished with foam or latte art.

Latte macchiato macchiato significa "latte" in italiano, quindi nel complesso il gusto del latte è più dominante in questa bevanda che in altre bevande a base di espresso. A two-to-one ratio between milk and espresso is common.

Although the Italian word for coffee is?coffeeyou will also see French and Spanishcoffee. Fortunately, they are pronounced similarly: (kah-FAY).

Popular varieties of Caffé Latte macchiato macchiato

Use these terms to order your espresso withmilk.

  • Café au lait or coffee with leche: Sentencesau lait(on LEY) Andwith leche(Kon LECH-ey) mean "with milk" in French and Spanish(respectively). These drinks are variations on the Italian coffee milk. The milk remains in the same ratio two to one. Sugar may be added and is usually automatically included in a coffee with leche.
  • Coffee mocha or mocha latte (kah-FAY MOH-kuh): In the coffee shop, mocha often refers to chocolate and the coffee mocha(or mocha latte) is a very popular drink. It is a variant of coffee latte made with white, milk, or dark chocolate syrup and milk or powder. It is often topped with whipped cream, chocolate syrup, or other sweet additions.
  • Latte macchiato flavored macchiato:A coffee latte with flavoring syrup or powder added. Popular flavors include vanilla, peppermint, Irish cream, caramel, cinnamon, almond, hazelnut, toffee, buttered rum, orange and raspberry. Latte macchiato flavored macchiatos may be topped with whipped cream or other toppings.

What is a Cappuccino?

A traditional Italian Cappuccino (KAH-poo-CHEE-noh) is a single espresso topped with equal parts of steamed and frothed milk (in a one-to-one ratio). It is served in a preheated cup-shaped mug with a capacity of four to six ounces.

Many people in the US market have adapted this recipe by adding more frothed and steamed milk while maintaining the same amount of espresso, unless otherwise noted. The foam that covers the Cappuccino acts as a natural insulator, keeping the drink hot for longer.

These expert-approved Starbucks orders are perfect for anyone on a keto diet.



Almost allthose who live the keto dietHe’ll tell you that eating out can be a real challenge at first – and the same goes for those who can’tyou live without your daily dose of caffeine. While caffeine isn’t totally off-limits for keto dieters, there’s a very good chance that your favorite iced coffee or tea is loaded with sugar-containing ingredients and carbohydrates, especially if Starbucks is your go-to coffee hotspot. Sugar itself has a sneaky way of finding its way into most menu items at the popular coffee chain, and yet it’s totally limited to those on a keto diet, as it jeopardizes your body’s ketosis state that you’ve worked so hard to maintain.

Unless your go-to order in the morning is a simple cup of black coffee, you’ll have to hack your way through Starbucks’ menu to enjoy something sinfully sweet while being completely sugar-free. Die-hard Starbucks fans have already found plenty of ways to avoid sugar and lots of extra carbs alike, and many have already used social media platforms to share their favorite Starbucks keto-friendly treats. #KetoStarbucks hashtag. Ma se sai che avrai voglia di un coffee o di un tè ogni giorno mentre provi la dieta, non c’è niente di meglio che essere rassicurati da un professionista su quali bevande puoi tranquillamente gustare senza fare affidamento su Instagram.


log intoBrierley Horton, MS, RD, registered dietician and nutritionist – has spent quite some time decoding the ketogenic diet and says understanding which Starbucks add-ons (from milk options to syrups) include added sugars is a must."When you’re following the keto diet, you need to be consuming less than 20g of carbohydrates — and nearly any of Starbucks’ ingredients, from whole milk to plant-based milk, contain carbs," Horton shares, adding that you should consult Starbucks’ advanced master of the nutrient list. "While you can look at how much sugar each syrup or beverage contains if you’d like, keep in mind that sugars factor into your carbohydrate count, so you don’t need to obsess over sugars as much as you do carbs in this case."

Horton has some Starbucks ordering tips that all keto nutritionists should know; plus some drinks that are a favorite of all keto lovers.

How to order a ketone-friendly drink from Starbucks:

It shouldn’t come as a big shock, but black coffee is your friend at Starbucks, Horton says, and should be the base of every drink you order. You’ll want to ask Roasted pikeche è completamente privo di carboidrati ed è l’opzione migliore per qualsiasi dietista cheto nella catena del coffee. "The boring answer to anyone looking for keto coffee drinks at Starbucks is black coffee, mostly because carb allowance is so limited, you want to be eating carb-rich items that also have a strong source of fiber and other nutrients," Horton says.


Regardless of whether you choose a mixed drink or black coffee, Horton says it’s best to keep the ratio of dairy in your cup less than(or equal to) coffee or espresso. And while whole milk has a higher fat content than alternative milk, it makes sense to rely on substitutes like coconut milk or soy milk as these supplements have fewer carbohydrates than conventional milk. "A short Café Misto, for example, has 3g of carbs when made with almond milk—that bumps up to 5g when made with whole milk, which is about a 10% difference in your daily allowance when on keto," she says. As for the keto diet eat as much fat as possible — which is where most of your protein will come from, according to Horton — you should feel free to substitute cream, which contains a significant amount of fat and fewer carbohydrates in any given serving.

Finally, you’ll need to swap your sweeteners and syrups for low-sugar varieties instead, Horton says. Starbucks offers some sugar-free syrups (including classic vanilla) that contain no additional carbohydrates and are made with sucralose, also known as Splenda. If you want to add odrobinę słodyczy do dowolnego napoju bez dodawania prawdziwego syropu, sięgnij po stewię, którą Starbucks oferuje klientom jako bezpłatny dodatek

What is Starbucks White Drink?

It’ll be one of the only keto-friendly options your barista may already be familiar with:Known officially as the "A white drink" by keto dieters, it’s actually made from Starbucks’ unsweetened Peach Citrus White Tea, heavy cream, and sugar-free vanilla syrup, according to Tasty. While there are some sugar substitutes used in the creation of this white tea drink, Horton says that the drink shouldn’t mess with your body’s ability to maintain ketosis. "In larger amounts, those sugar-free syrups I could still be contributing a small amount of carbs towards your daily limits. Be sure to find the lowest threshold of sweetness that you enjoy — no more than two or three pumps — and keep it light as possible. But indulging in these sugar-free varieties won’t immediately risk your ketosis," Horton shares. "Plus, when you’re eating keto, you’ll notice that you’ve reset your taste buds and are cleaning your palette overall; a drink with six pumps of flavoring will taste very different than it used to, and you’ll be satisfied with less sugar as it is."

Who would have thought that ordering one of the most famous drinks in the world could be so complicated? When it comes to light roast or dark roast, caramel this and vanilla that, and what with each coffee shop having a different definition of what a macchiato is, you never really know what you’re getting yourself into.

Queste sono le basi di tutte le domande sul coffee che ti tengono sveglio la notte.

If you like simplicity, this is for you. It’s pretty standard at most coffee shops, but black coffee varies in the type of coffee bean used and how it’s brewed. The darker the roast, the less caffeine there is. The lighter the roast, the more caffeine there is. Sounds contradicting, but it’s true. Some of the fancier places might use a pour over or french press method to brew your cup, but it’ll taste the same, unless you’re a coffee aficionado.

A traditional macchiato is a shot of espresso with a dollop of foam on top, but if you order a macchiato at Starbucks, you’ll basically be getting the opposite. Expect something like a caramel, sweet milk.

Well, I haven’t tried this yet, but considering the difference between the amount of caffeine I consume on a daily basis and the amount of caffeine I need to consume on a daily basis in order to not act like a psycho, I probably should.

Here’s to getting caffeinated and not having the barista stare at you while you try to figure out what the hell to order. Your health.

Quando si tratta di reti di base e onnipresenti, Starbucks è il più semplice e onnipresente possibile, ma le sue regole e rituali confondono ancora anche i bevitori di coffee più esperti.

Before I swindled Lifehacker into paying me to tweet, I worked as a Starbucks barista for a little over a year, waking at 2:45 most mornings to get to the store by 4 a. m. for opening time. In that short, horrifically sleep-deprived time, it became very clear that most people I could stand to learn a bit more about the dos and don’ts of ordering at Starbucks. Here’s a guide from me to you.

Preorder using the Starbucks mobile app

Plain and simple:If you don’t want the barista to judge you or your order, use the Starbucks app so they never get the chance. Some tips if you do it this way:

Order through the app only if you visit Starbucks regularly

This is because the app only allows you to pay through its rewards program , which requires you to load the app with a gift card or with money from your credit card. So, if you only plan on going once, you’ll probably have a couple bucks leftover on the card you’ll never use again. But if you’re a regular customer, it’s probably worth it .

Double check your order details before you submit it

Few things are more annoying to a bartender than making a drink exactly as ordered and then having to throw it in the trash and redo because the customer made a mistake when ordering.

Unless otherwise noted, many beverages, such as iced tea, are sweetened

If you don’t want your iced tea sweetened, tap, “flavors” then hit the minus button until it says “no liquid cane sugar.”

your napój może nie czekać na Ciebie tam, gdzie są regularne zamówienia

If you don’t see your drink on the handoff plane—that’s Starbucks’ term for what most humans calls “a counter”—where baristas call out in-store orders, check to see if there’s a separate zone on the counter for mobile orders. Sometimes they are found at the exit, so people in a hurry can jump in and out without making their way through the crowd. If you don’t see an area like this, you can simply ask the barista where you should pick up your mobile order. This has the added bonus of getting the barista’s attention; they’ll be more likely to make sure your drink didn’t get lost or misplaced.

Of course, if you’d rather just order in person, that’s perfectly all right. But I have some tips if you do – and some pitfalls that I want to help you.

This caffeine calculator will help you plan your day

Caffeine can make you more alert, but so can a good night’s sleep. Until now if you wanted to plan

When you order in person

Ask questions

If you don’t know the difference between a latte and a Cappuccino, ask!(Cappuccinos have more foam and less steamed milk than a latte, if you were gonna ask.) If you’ve never had one of the winter seasonal beverages, like the chestnut praline latte, you can simply ask the barista to describe it. Nobody expects customers to know everything, and it’s way easier to sort out issues before you’ve ordered than after you already have a drink in your hand.

Ricorda quanti coffee espresso e dolcificanti vengono aggiunti per impostazione predefinita a ciascuna dimensione

Starbucks makes everything according to a standard recipe, and the quantity of each ingredient varies based on the size you order. Here’s a quick overview:

  • Short:One shot of espresso; two syrup pumps(This is an eight ounce size you can orderonly hot drinks?although it is usually not very well advertised).
  • Tall:One shot of espresso; three syrup pumps.
  • Huge:Two shots of espresso; four syrup pumps.
  • Twenty (hot): two shots of espresso; five syrup pumps.(Note that the amount of espresso is the same as a grande. If you want more espresso in your hot latte, maybe stick with a grande and just ask for an extra shot. It’ll have less milk, sugar and calories—and it’ll probably cost a little less.)
  • Twenty (iced): three shots of espresso; six syrup pumps(Una bevanda ghiacciata venti è leggermente più grande di una calda venti – non so perché – da qui la pompa extra e il bicchierino di coffee espresso.)
  • Trento: Seven syrup pumps(Starbucks does not serve espresso drinks in this size.)

There is one big exception (it occurs to me) to the above: Americans get an extra dose of espresso.

Feel free to customize your order

Bycie taktownym dla nisko opłacanych pracowników usług jest bardzo dobrą rzeczą, ale bariści Starbucks oczekują – i są przeszkoleni – aby dostosować prawie everything do drinka. You shouldn’t feel bad about making a tweak(or two or three) to a drink if you don’t like the standard recipe.
