Shorty Time

1 Mar

Today’s lesson was brought to me by my gal Sheena during today’s 3pm Starbucks run. After going to Starbucks for over 16 years, I never knew that you could order a “short.” A short is smaller (8 oz.) than a “Tall” (12 oz). You can order any of their drinks in a short version. So for those days where you are going to Starbucks for the 2nd or 3rd time in one day or those days where you just need a little fix, just know that you can Short it up! What a short looks like (far left)…

More proof…

A little known fact: Starbucks actually has 4 cup sizes [actually 5 if you count the sample cup]. There’s the short cup [8 oz.], the tall cup [12 oz.], the grande [16 oz.] and the venti [20 oz.] . The short cup is rarely used except upon customer request [and few of them even know it exists] or for espresso or a kid’s hot chocolate. The tall is readily accepted as small, the grande – medium, and the venti – large. Now, I know that 20 oz. may sound like a lot, but many times I wish they had a larger one, maybe 24 or 28 oz.? – Source

    Why don’t they post prices for that? Or does it cost the same as a tall?

      It’s cheaper than a tall so you save some money too 🙂
