Your Coffee Questions Answered by Ellen
I have to admit, being short on cash is not where I wanted to be when I pulled up...but I had to get my fix.
"Hi, this is Shelly..what sounds delicious today?"
"Hello Shelly - Um, a tall is a small right?"
(I have not worked at Starbucks unlike the other Java Joe Mama)
"Why yes it is"
I could almost hear her secretly chuckle thinking she was speaking with an amateur - little did she know who she was dealing with..I've ordered Starbucks in Germany for the love of Mike..
If she knew me at all, she would know I get a grande or a vente quad shot or better, today I forgot my card at home and only had three dollars and some quarters. Definitely not enough for my usual caramelicious number and I was off...way off. The cup looked teeny tiny to me (I felt like a giant), it was too much milk because I couldn't afford the extra shot so I went home and made more espresso on the stove top, put it in a bigger cup, which required more milk and took away from any caramel deliciousness it ever wanted to have and I think may be the reason I am still up at 2:20am writing this post..
Ever been in this predicament, being thrown off from your normal coffee order?
If only someone had shown me this video...
I hope we've all learned something today and we know not to go to France for anything bigger than a shot glass.
