What's the deail with Starbucks?
« on: July 26, 2020, 06:51:34 PM »
Starbucks® Blonde Caramel Cloud Macchiato* (Contains eggs)

What is a cloud and why are they adding eggs and clouds to coffee

Oatmilk Honey Latte

The fuck, now there's oatmeal in coffee?

Cold Brew with Salted Honey Cold Foam

Ok now this is a troll right? The fuck is salted honey and why is it a cold foam and what does this have to do with coffee

Nitro Cold Brew with Dark Cocoa Almondmilk Foam

They're just putting random words together right?

Whisked egg whites produce a foamy texture similar to milk froth, but thicker (also common in cocktails). Oatmilk, like coconut milk, is a milk substitute made from - you guessed it - oats, which many people like because it tastes the closest to real milk. The honey isn't salted, it's the coldbrew itself that's salted (salty + sweet is a niche but not uncommon flavor combination in desserts). Nitro means nitrogen gas injected into the liquid to give it a refreshing finish similar to carbonation - you have to try it yourself to understand.

First is a bullshit drink Ariana Grande invented but people who like foamy sweet drinks like it

Oatmilk is great in lattes but the sbux honey blend is garbaggio

Salted honey cold foam can be good if they put the syrup in the cold brew but if it's made the way it's supposed to with the syrup in the foam it's godawful

The new almond milk foams are alright but still think you're better off going with the salted caramel cold foam cold brew. Starbucks makes bank selling sugar drinks to adults who delude themselves into thinking they aren't drinking the adult version of a milkshake. They need all these fancy ass drinks because nobody is coming there based on the quality of their coffee.

iirc salt is added to coffee in parts of Ethiopia and that's a locus of coffee production and consumption, so yes.

Uh the deal with Starbucks is it's coffee that costs almost as much as or more than a box at Taco Bell but it's pretty dang tasty coffee, and there's cold drinks like frapuccinos which are really just milkshakes given a weird name so adults can go grab one and not feel childish and not be hounded by their kids to get them one. Also every so often right wing people get mad at them for some reason and to get their revenge instead of just not going there and giving them money they say their order is for Trump or whatever and then the broke ass student baristaing in order to keep their loans from being too soul crushing has to say 'Trump'. Which clearly destroys their business far more than not going there and giving them any money would. Yeah.

I have no beef with the frap.

It's a sound concept.

A cappuccino is a traditional coffee beverage. Add ice, and it's frozen, and now its a frappuccino.

And sure, I was in middle school and I went to the mall and got a mocha frap.

But you know what? They never asked me if I wanted to add a salty cloud.

I was ready to destroy you but I guess you're right

Quote
Frappuccino is a portmanteau of "frappe", the New England name from the french "lait frappé" a milkshake with ice cream, and cappuccino, an espresso coffee with frothed milk. The word was coined and trademarked in Boston, Massachusetts.[1][2] In the Boston area, a "frappe" (pronounced "frap" and spelled without the accent) is a thick milkshake with ice cream,[2] derived from the French word frappé.[3]

The original Frappuccino drink was developed, named, trademarked and sold by George Howell's Eastern Massachusetts coffee shop chain, The Coffee Connection and created by then employee, Andrew Frank.[2] When Starbucks purchased The Coffee Connection in 1994, they also gained the rights to use, make, market, and sell the Frappuccino drink.[2] The drink, with a different recipe, was introduced under the Starbucks name in 1995 and as of 2012, Starbucks had annual Frappuccino sales of over $2 billion

It's weird. I bought some of this but the label was blue. I thought i was gonna hate it but it was actually really good. Only sour I've liked so far.

Hey guys.

So over the past couple of weeks Ive been going to Starbucks frequently to write reviews for you all on my experience.

But those fuckers KEEP FUCKING UP.

I paid $$$$ for a nitro cold brew and its full of ice. And ice kills the nitro. SO IT TASTES LIKE $1 ICE COFFEE BUT I PAID LIKE 6

I feel like going back there and knocking over a few displays.

That is all.

Honestly, getting a nitro with ice is fucking whack dude. I would have gone full Karen on those sons of bitches. I would have torn up the whole store and trashed the place and shat on the floor and broken all the machines over that single peace of disrespect. That's completely unbelievable and you should not have had to put up with that.

So what makes this worse is that this my second attempt at a Nitro Cold Brew.

When I got one last week, my reaction was "this isn't cold at all". In fact, it was downright warm. I got home and put it in the freezer and 30 minutes later it was delicious. Truly an excellent drink, but I dont want to spoil my reviews.

So today they hand it to me with ice and my first reaction was "oh its cold! They screwed up last time! This makes sense" But nope, its a watered down mess. So I googled and sure enough ice ruins the whole nitro thing and its not supposed to come with it. It also means I got less coffee.

I thought the whole Starbucks gimmick was that it's consistent as fuck?

Pretty sure I ordered nitro cold brew, and it was served with ice in San Jose California. I would not be surprised if they were screwing it up.

You're such a weirdo.

Looking through this thread, and this is very timely!

So a few weeks ago, I was at an airport connecting. The place was packed, and it was the south (Charlotte), so lots of people without masks. I was hungry/thirsty, but didnt want to eat in a super crowded area.

So I figured Id get a frap. Easy way to get drink + calories and I could slurp it down under my mask.

I go and order a "vanilla frap" because I want a frap thats vanilla flavored, instead of mocha flavored.

Those motherfuckers handed me a white beverage. NO COFFEE.

I say excuse me, where is the coffee. And they say "a vanillabean frap doesnt have coffee".

First of all bitch, I didnt say vanilla bean. I said a vanilla frap.

Second of all.

WHO THE FUCK IS GETTING A COFFEE BEVERAGE WITHOUT COFFEE AT STARBUCKS

It was a white paste. It looks disgusting.

They made me a coffee one though, so it worked out in the end.
