A CHAT

Conversation overheard at Starbucks just now.

  • Customer (to barista): Uhm, excuse me? We didn't order this. It has coffee in it.
  • Barista: Well what did you order?
  • Customer: White mochas.
  • Barista: That has coffee in it.
  • Customer: Oh! Well . . .
  • Barista: This is Starbucks.

Anonymous said: A cup of coffee has less caffeine than an espresso so I don't get all this triple and quad business when you literally could get more caffeine having a coffee

Ignoring the typo, is it so hard to believe that some people drink espresso beverages for more reasons than just maximizing caffeine content per ounce?

My heart started having irregular palpitations just watching him...

Anonymous said: I'm sorry if you've answered this before but I really wanted to start drinking coffee because sometimes before school I just need a pick me up what can you suggest I start off with that doesn't have that strong coffee taste and something I can eventually move up too once my pallet gets used to the taste? Thank you!

I have but I dont mind doing it again. 

I started with mochas. Chocolate is a pretty strong taste that mixes well with coffee. Over time, I just started asking for less and less syrup. 

You can really do this with any flavor latte you enjoy. Chocolate and white chocolate are nice and sweet though and are typically a good place to start.

When the barista says “we’ll have those drinks out in just a second” they’re real tired of hearing you count to one and then ask for your drink.

Every so often, I go through my posts and check the notes. Its always nice to see people who have been following since the beginning still liking and re logging things. This blog has changed a lot since then and its cool that y’all have come along for the ride.

Its also cool to see newer followers becoming “regulars” here.

I’m glad y’all enjoy this shit, basically.
