Starbucks Cutting Out Complicated Drinks Baristas Hate Making
It happens to me often, I will walk into Starbucks because I didn't order on my mobile phone. I end up getting stuck behind someone who ordered 37 different complicated drinks. Like whatever happened to yelling at someone "No modifications! Order the drink as it comes!"?
Starbucks regulars and Starbucks baristas, get ready to celebrate, the coffee giant has announced that they will be taking a step back on complicated limited-time drinks.
Reggie Borges told Business Insider that Starbucks is not going to completely cut out limited-time drinks. Instead, Starbucks is going to cut down the number of complicated drinks they bring out.
This year I have taken the bait on switching out and trying new drinks. Have you tried the new nitro cold brew? I am stuck on the Pumpkin Cream Cold Brew.
According to Business Insider "Certain complicated limited-time offerings have long infuriated baristas at Starbucks. In particular, the Instagram-ready Frappuccinos, such as the infamous Unicorn Frappuccino, slow down service and can cause bottlenecks, annoying both employees and customers." We could not agree more. Hopefully, this makes everything smooth sailing from here out.
