My Go-To Starbucks Orders
This mama has loved coffee since before she became Mama. Working as a barista was my dream first job. And, I loved it! There was something about finding the right combination of flavors. Trying the special first thing in the morning, before the sun was even out. The smell of fresh ground espresso. I mean, if we’re being honest, the tips🙌🏻.
I think I could count on one hand the amount of lattes I made for myself. I realized within the first couple weeks that a barista’s drink, at least at the drive through coffee huts of Montana, was an iced Americano. Usually white chocolate. Or, with honey and cinnamon if they were being healthy. Before we go on to what I order, let’s chat about what the options are.
Americano – espresso + water + usually a splash of milk/cream of your choice
Latte – espresso + milk of your choice
Iced coffee – brewed coffee that’s been chilled
Cold brew – coffee brewed overnight in cold water instead of instantly with hot water
And, then you can add flavored syrups and sauces as you chose. My go-to flavors at Starbucks are white chocolate, sugar free cinnamon dolce, caramel sauce, and hazelnut every once and awhile. Unless it’s the holiday season, then I’ll take all of the fun holiday flavas!
So, if the next time you’re at Starbucks you think what would Aly order? Here’s what! Here are my go to Starbucks orders. You won’t be disappointed.
