Starbucks hacks

The term “Starbucks” is almost interchangeable with coffee for any of us who frequent the forest green establishment. 
What some people don’t know is there are several hacks you can use to improve your experience and make the best of their minimalistic menu. 
The first hack is probably the most important for those of us who are constantly on the move and don’t have time to wait for our multilayer mocha to cool to non-scalding temperatures. When at the register, order your drink at kid’s temperature. This will tell the barista to heat the milk, or whatever substitute you choose, to approximately 130 degrees as opposed to the normal 140 to 160 degrees. 
Craving something creamier and richer? Ask for your drink “breve.” This means the barista will craft your drink of choice with half and half rather than whole or 2 percent milk that is usually standard. 
In the mood for a snack rather than committing to a grande-sized beverage? There is a size not on the menu; the short. This size is eight fluid ounces, as compared to the 12 fluid ounces of the tall size. 
This last hack is especially useful to avoid the morning rush. Most major coffee shops will have an app that allows you to order and pickup completely bypassing the line. 
So, there you have it. I hope you find these tips useful the next time you go to Starbucks.
