Starbucks Worker Pokes Fun at Customers Ordering ‘Light Ice’ & Cold Foam

Stepping into Starbucks, it’s easy to get lost in the vast menu and customization options. Baristas, our caffeine saviors, often juggle unique customer demands.

But what happens when a simple request, like “light ice,” stirs confusion? Dive in as we unravel the quirks of Starbucks orders and the unexpected reactions.

The “Light Ice” Request

A barista known as Jess highlighted one such request in a video. Pointing out that customers who order drinks with cold foam and then ask for light ice are making unnecessary requests.

Jess implies that baristas typically include less ice to make room for the cold foam, regardless of whether a customer asks for it.

Despite this, some customers insist on asking for light ice, possibly unaware that it’s already a part of the cold foam drink preparation process.

Mixed Reactions & Adjustments

The video sparked various reactions. Some viewers, especially those who work as baristas, shared their methods of handling such requests.

Some give a highly reduced amount of ice, while others adjust the amount of drink base, ensuring the drink still maintains its quality.

Customers have also chimed in, with some noting that they haven’t noticed a difference in their beverages whether or not they ask for light ice.

Avoid Common Starbucks Ordering Mistakes

Navigating the extensive menu and the specialized jargon at Starbucks can be daunting, especially for those new to the Starbucks scene. It’s easy to lose yourself in a sea of customization options, sizes, and brewing methods.

One common mistake is forgetting about caffeine. Many beverages camouflage their caffeinated nature with decadent toppings, but it’s essential to discern between caffeine-free and caffeinated options.

Another mistake is not considering the size.

At Starbucks, the barista must register the size first, so stating the size as you begin your order can save unnecessary hassle and ensure your drink is crafted to perfection from the get-go.

Ensure Your Drink Meets Your Expectations

Specifying the temperature and understanding the terminology is crucial in ordering at Starbucks. Communicating whether you want your drink hot or iced is fundamental, and understanding terms like tall, grande, and venti is beneficial.

Additionally, don’t forget to specify the type of milk you prefer, as the default is 2% milk. If you prefer a different kind or lean towards plant-based alternatives, Starbucks offers diverse options, including soy, almond, oat, and coconut milk.

Lastly, ensure you take the first sip before leaving Starbucks. If your drink isn’t right, baristas are typically very accommodating and willing to adjust to meet your expectations.
