Why is a tall coffee the smallest size?!

Question: Why is a tall coffee the smallest size?
It seems like tall would mean that it is big. And don't try to tell me about some italian translation.


because their hipster ******* trying to be original

Assuming that you are speaking about Starbucks, tall isn't the smallest size.

There is a size called short, which is the smallest.

Most people only ask for a short cup of espresso or cappucino because you aren't supposed to drink a huge cup of it.

You can ask for any Starbucks drink in a short cup which is cheaper and fewer calories.

With olives, 'giant' is pretty small.
It's all advertising and promotion trying to make small look bigger, eh?

That's the way our society has evolved!
