Ceci n'est pas un macchiato.


My wife and I had to use a Starbucks, because our end of town sucks.  She had coupons, including one for a macchiato.  So I ordered a double-macchiato.
Sir, you can't have a macchiato with that (coupon).  You have to have one of the Starbucks machiattos [sic.] like a 'caramel-latte-machiatto'.
There are only three coffees: black, espresso, or espresso with very little milk-foam, none mixed in by the barista. If you want a fucking milkshake, knock yourself out, but don't call it coffee.
...  Just get me a tall dark.

  1. What the fuck is a caramel latte machiatto? If Starbucks was a person, I'd kick him in the nuts.

    1. Only recently have they sometimes had espresso and machiatto, recognizably such, on the menu. They continue to call the abominations machiatto nonetheless.
