As promised, I said in my Coffee Basics post last month I would follow up with more specialty drinks. If you’re a newbie coffee drinker and you find yourself in the Emerald City, Seattle. Please don’t be scared, I can walk you through the basics of ordering specialty drinks.
First, the barista (person who makes your delicious coffee drink) will ask you what you’d like to order. (Or they just may look at you blankly and say nothing as they’ve been up since 4am).
espresso shots, chocolate syrup and steamed milk.
You also need to tell them how many shots and the size of your drink. Typically 12 oz., 16 oz., and 20 oz. are your size choices. Most drinks come with 2 shots but you can add more.
espresso shots and a small amount of milk foam.
espresso shots and half & half
