This video is an advertisement for Dunkin Donuts, one of Starbucks chief competitors. This advertisement makes it seam impossible to order a drink at Starbucks and pokes fun at the use of Italian in the menu. But don't fret, you won't need to "order drinks in English, not Fritalitan." Starbucks offers customers a pleasant experience above a great cup of coffee and the lingo as all a part of the recipe. This Starbucks Dictionary will put the ordering power in your hands.
We have all been in this situation before: the person in front of you in line just listed off a drink title that took 2 full breaths it was so long. Well, I am here to help you Starbucks-lovers, so feel free to post and ask me about any drinks you've heard of and are interesting to you. Come on! Don't be shy
So, if you are standing in line and you hear the woman in front of you order a "Grande Breve." Hmm. You say to yourself, what is that? Well folks, the breve is the simplest variation on an Latte imaginable. When you order a latte at Starbucks they will make it using 2% milk (unless you request otherwise). All that a Breve is is a latte made with Half & Half.
This blog is for people who love Starbucks but just feel lost when they hear the lingo. The beauty of Starbucks is that there is a product there for everyone. Whether you are 15 or 55, it doesn't matter. So this blog is for you! I want you to be able to walk up to the counter and order your drink with confidence. I mean, terms like "triple tall breve" and "Espresso Macchiato" are not things we learned in elementary school. We can do it.
