Which Drink Are You?

My post for this morning may seem vain at first sight. But this is for real. No joke. I’m sitting in Starbucks and I’m baffled once again by how much money people pay for coffee. I mean, people stop in here 2-3 times a DAY for their drink. Starbucks is an experience so many people can’t miss…daily. Amazing.

I’m probably a once or twice a week Starbucks drinker (since we use a fabulous Keurig at home).

I typically get a tall bold in a grande cup. My bro taught me this. Usually they’ll give you a grande size, and if not, you get plenty of room for cream.

So will you help me with my research? I’m dying to know, which drink are you?

  1. I’m a Grande bold in a Venti cup, pretty much for the same reasons. Extra room for cream is nice. Having worked as a barista for awhile back in the day, we had some regulars that would come in and drop $5 for their favorite drink 4-5 times a day. It’s crazy how much money people spend on coffee these days.

    • 4-5 times a day? I may need to re-post that. That is insane! As for your coffee choice, great minds think alike. That’s all I’m sayin.

  2. If we had Starbucks in Tanzania, I think I’d be a pretty heavy iced coffee drinker, unsweetened and no milk. During the cold in the US I would love the occasional triple grande nonfat w/whip mocha (sometimes with peppermint). Or Christmas blend. Man I miss Christmas blend…

  3. I LOVE coffee but I can’t remember that last time I bought a drink from Starbucks. It’s just not as popular here in NZ. We actually have three Starbucks coffee shops here in Christchurch but I tend to go for the organic, fairtrade type stuff.

    I love Underground Coffee (http://www.undergroundcoffee.co.nz/) and the Addington Coffee Co-Op (http://www.addingtoncoffee.org.nz/). Seriously, it beats Starbucks anytime!

    Trim Flat-white with one sugar for me please 🙂

      • The city I live in is called Christchurch. Cool huh!
        So, no we don’t have Starbucks at our church 🙂

      • Christchurch is officially the coolest city I’ve ever heard of. I’m going to move there now 🙂
