Pissing off your Starbucks barista is never a good idea. These seven completely absurd Starbucks orders have been called the most obnoxious drink orders ever – and people have actually ordered them! We would never recommend ordering these drinks at your local Starbucks (unless you have a bone to pick with someone), but they’re amusing to look at nonetheless. Check them out for yourself below!
Number Seven: Decaf Soy Latte With an Extra Shot And Cream
A decaf latte is non-sensical enough as it is, but cream in a soy latte? Just stick with dairy products if you’re going to pull that stunt.
Number Six: Venti Iced Skinny Hazelnut Macchiato, Extra Shot, Light Ice
A proper macchiato is just a shot of espresso with foam, so an iced macchiato is not a real drink that exists. Nonetheless, Starbucks’ macchiatos are one of their most popular drinks, but this order is a real doozy.
Number Five: Quad Grande Skim Caramel Macchiato Upside Down, Extra Hot
Next on our list is this lovely mouthful – hello, upside down?! We recommend this person dump their drink on their head before actually drinking an upside down caramel macchiato.
Number Four: Iced Half Caff Venti Ristretto Cinnamon Dolce Soy Skinny Latte, Four Pumps
A ristretto shot of espresso uses the same amount of coffee in a regular shot but with half the amount of water. Adding all of that extra syrup and milk completely defeats the purpose of ordering a ristretto shot, so this just makes more work for those poor baristas.
Number Three: Venti Skinny Caramel Macchiato, Extra Shot, Extra Hot, Extra Whip
Not a single aspect of this drink has been untouched by the person who ordered it. “Extra” might be their personal norm, but in reality, that’s just extra annoying. Plus, why order a “skinny” drink if you’re just going to get extra whipped cream?
Number Two: Grande Skim Chai Tea Latte, Three Pumps, Lite Water, No Foam, Extra Hot
The second craziest Starbucks drink order on our list is this one – yes, you read that right – “lite water”! A chai tea latte has never looked so unattractive.
Number One: The Craziest Starbucks Order – Tall Nonfat Latte, Two Percent Foam
This drink order looks simple, but take another look – the latte is made with skim milk, but the foam is made with two percent milk, requiring extra milk to be steamed. On top of that, the fat difference between skim milk and two percent milk is so minimal that the difference would barely be noticeable. Thanks for reading!
