Do You Know Your Starbucks?

Do You Know Your Starbucks?

Get educated before you get caffeinated.

My daily coffee run is a part of my routine and I feel lost if I don't get my must-have cup of coffee. But I realized the other day when I am ordering drinks, I have absolutely no idea what any of it actually means.

What's the difference between a latte and a macchiato?




I don't know either, so I'm here today to inform myself and all of you of the basics behind coffee.

1. Espresso

A single espresso shot is what this first category consists of.

2. Latte

Espresso shot(s) + steamed milk + frothy milk foam

Lattes are the basis of most other coffee drinks, with the main differences usually being various flavored syrups.

3. Cappucino

Espresso shot(s) + less steamed milk than a latte + more milk foam than a latte

4. Americano

Espresso shot(s) + hot water (instead of milk)

5. Macchiato

Espresso shot(s) + steamed milk + flavored syrup + foam

Macchiatos are different because, instead of starting with the espresso shot, it is poured in after the foam. I usually order the caramel macchiato, which comes with caramel butter drizzled on top.

6. Mocha

A latte + chocolate syrup

Now that you're educated, go get caffeinated!

15 Things You Want To Tell Your Keurig Because It’s Actually Your Favorite Roommate

"Hey, beautiful."

Like many college students, coffee is my best friend. I love it. I rely on it. I need it.

Ya know, kind of like a roommate.

Coffee helps me survive the hustle and bustle of college and is always there to support me.

Again, kind of like a roommate.

But, my morning cup of coffee wouldn't be possible without the help of my handy-dandy Keurig. It's the first thing I see when I walk into my apartment, and its the first thing I go to when I wake up.

I've had these 21 thoughts about my Keurig that prove it's pretty much a 5th roommate:

1. "Honestly, thank God I have you in my life."

2. "You're so beautiful."

3. "Where would I be without you?"

4. "I'm so happy to see you!!!"

5. "Omg can you please hurry up?"

6. "Thank you for calming me down."

7. "I love you."

8. "Oh wow, you smell good."

9. "I miss you!"

10. "Ah, you give me life. Literally."

11. "Can you help me?"

12. "Hi."

13. "If anyone can help me, it's you."

14. "Thank you for making Monday's suck a little less."

15. "You're so dependable."

Thanks to my Keriug, I survive the gloomiest of days and the happiest.

Kind of like a roommate.
