Starbucks experts - how would you order this?!

Question: Starbucks experts - how would you order this!?
Ok Starbucks experts, help me out here!. What is the "correct" way to order a small hot caramel latte with non fat milk (with regular syrup, not sugar free)!?

Help us settle this -- My friend insists there is a "correct" way of ordering this - I say just ask for a hot caramel latte with non fat milk in the smallest size they have available!. How much more correct can you get than that!? Is there another more "correct" way!?Www@FoodAQ@Com

Tall caramel nonfat latte!.

The barista will mark the boxes on the side of the cup(top to bottom)!. If you listen when they repeat, they always go in a specific order, regardless of how you said it!. The side of the cup has boxes marked like this:

Size (grab the appropriate cup)

Most of them don't care, but it can make it easier for you to get exactly what you want (and remember what you like) if you do it the same way every time!. It also makes it less likey they'll forget or mess up if you have a long list of 'specifics'!.

Mine's a tall (size) decaf (caffeine) nonfat (milk) no whip (custom) mocha (drink)!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

If you say "hot caramel latte with non fat milk in the smallest size they have available", they'll still get the idea!.

The "correct" way is to order the drink as if you were reading the markings down the side of the cup!.

Your drink would be a Tall Nonfat Caramel Latte!.
You don't need to specify that you want the syrup with sugar in it, and you don't need to specify that you want the drink hot!. It's always assumed that the drink being ordered is hot; you'd only have to say otherwise when you'd like it iced!.

also, are you aware there's a "Short" size (8oz)!? You have to ask for it specifically-- if you ask for "the smallest" you'll just receive a Tall (12oz)!.

The person who instructed you to say the word "skinny" is incorrect-- that word is used when the drink is both Nonfat AND Sugar-free!. That's not the case for yours (although you could always get one if you wished!)

Here's an interesting website-- it's a LITTLE outdated (a few drinks listed have since been discontinued) but it's basically Starbucks simplified!.


Tall skinny caramel latte
Tall non-fat caramel latte

They will assume that it's hot unless it's a really hot day - in which case they'll ask - or if you specify iced!. The term "skinny" is used for skim milk!. I don't know that anything comes with sugar free syrup by default!. You should say 'tall skinny sugar free caramel latte' if you want it to be sugar free!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

The correct way to ask is to say "I would like a tall caramel latte with non-fat milk, with regular syrup, please!." That's all there is to it! I don't buy coffee, but I do listen to my mom order something like that everytime she drags me along to Starbucks!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

Tall Caramel Latte w/ non fat milk!. I don't think that you need to say hot because it is a latte, and a cold latte you would ask for a "iced caramel latte!." also, the smallest size at Starbucks is a tall ( from smallest to largest it is tall, grande, venti)!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

i know you are wrong because my mom did this and was told they don't have that!. but i forget what a latte is starbucks is called!. i knwo for size you need to say "tall" that is a small, med- grande, large- ventiWww@FoodAQ@Com

Short(short is 8 ounces and a lot of people don't know that they have a size smaller than a tall) skim caramel latte with no whipWww@FoodAQ@Com

Tall, nonfat caramel latte!.

See!. Not that hard :)Www@FoodAQ@Com

Just use your own words and order just like you did!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

You have way too much time on your hands!. Starbucks sux anyways!. Why pay that much for coffee!?!?!? Make your own!Www@FoodAQ@Com
