Starbuck's coffee guide

Updated on March 14, 2008

A tour into the most famous coffee shop


Starbucks has become more than your regular coffee shop, rather it has become a way of life for the many fellows who enjoy stopping there for their cup of Joe. Whether people are coming in the shop for a morning lift before heading to the office or people are stopping by while enjoying a mid afternoon stroll throughout the city streets, Starbucks has enticed more than regular people looking for their daily dose of caffeine.

More and more people are discovering Starbucks because they simply want to satisfy their cravings. If you are looking for specialty gourmet coffees you have come to the right place. Starbucks coffees come in different sizes from tall to venti and the menu is sure to change daily to satisfy the pickiest of customers looking for variety.

The increment of customers of diverse backgrounds is thanks to the Starbucks effort in offering more and more ordering options to its customers. There are actually so many varieties of coffee and drinks that choosing may be almost an overwhelming experience!

Frapuccino's which are created with real milk are a favorite amongst Starbuck's customers. They come in a variety of flavors, of course, traditional Coffee, golden caramel, chocolate chip, sweet strawberries and cream, smooth vanilla, and chocolaty mocha. In the summer, when the heat become unbearable a Frapuccino will cool you off since it can be ordered with crushed ice.

Caramel macchiato is a sort of basic vanilla latte with a lot of gooey golden caramel drizzled on top, make sure to mix this one well, to get out all the yummy flavors!

A caffe' Mocha is a coffee enriched with a chocolaty flavor and a dollop of whipped cream, you can upgrade it to Mocha Valencia where an orange flavor will be added and the dollop of whipped cream wil be decorated with tangy orange peel.

If you are looking for the strong and rich concentrated flavor of coffee beans go for an expresso. This is coffee the Italian way, it will certainly give you a nice lift. Make sure to specify how many shots you want, for instance, 'Tall' is one shot, 'Grande' are two,and 'Venti' are three.

A Red Eye means caution. This is the king of coffee, meaning the strongest available. It basically consists of caffeinated coffee to which are added one, two or three shots of expresso. Only the brave should try this. Do not underestimate the power of this coffee, you want to make sure you think twice before ordering this one.

On a lighter note, if you are looking for something less overwhelming go with the Caffe' Americano, a diluted form of expresso.

For those looking for a delight, caffe' latte which is basically espresso and steamed milk topped with foam will keep you warm and cozy. Many different syrups are available if you are looking for a sweet sensation.

For the classical lovers of cappuccino, Starbucks offers its latte in a nice foamy texture and if you wish, add a dollop of whipped cream, your coffee may turn sensational.

Starbucks has turned coffee into a cultural enrichment event, as a matter of fact Starbucks has started offering coffee blends from all over the world. You will learn that each region produces different coffee varieties with a quite unique taste. You can travel the world in a culinary matter by just sitting at your local Starbucks.

No Starbucks in your area? No problem. Starbucks has started distributing its gourmet coffees to grocery stores, so check your local coffee aisles well. As an alternative, you may always order 24/7 Starbucks coffee on line.

Whether you drink your coffee at your local Starbucks shop or sitting at home, Starbucks has successfully brought drinking coffee to a higher level. Never before has coffee been so much popular, nor has it been available in so many varieties. Starbucks has turned your regular cup of Joe into a new, exciting cultural experience. Still overwhelmed on what to order? Just ask your barista some advice, she will surely be happy to help you out!
