How to Order at Starbucks

Smart Coffee Drinkers Take Advantage of This Starbucks Hack

Ice and foam: two potential ways you can feel ripped off by Starbucks if your cup is filled to the brim with either. Though a Starbucks employee claims it's not a company-endorsed policy, I'm all about wising up to avoid the dreaded $5 cup of ice (or foam). And you can, too, if you order the right way. Ask for "light ice" or "light foam" or even "no ice" or "no foam." You can also ask for your preferred drink size but in a bigger cup. I've done this with coffee, and it means you have tons of room for milk while still getting the most coffee possible. It also works in your favor for barista-made drinks. "I'll take a grande latte in a venti cup." Baristas will usually pour the entire amount of steamed milk in the cup, giving you a larger drink. The same goes for matcha lattes and Frappuccinos. Isn't it wonderful to know you're getting the most bang for your buck?
