What are the names of Starbucks’ sizes? 

Unlike other coffee shops, which usually handle drink sizes on a scale of large, medium, and small, Starbucks has six different beverage sizes, and not all of them are available for all the beverages they offer.

Namely, Starbucks’ beverage sizes are (from largest to smallest): 

  • Trenta – This is the largest beverage size Starbucks offers, and it is only available for cold beverages. This size drink can hold a volume of 31 ounces – larger than the average person’s stomach capability, per reports. This size takes its name from the Italian word for the number thirty.
  • Venti – This beverage, named after the Italian word for the number 20, can be used for both hot and cold beverages, with hot beverages holding 20 ounces, and cold beverages holding 24 ounces.
  • Grande  – Once again drawing inspiration from Italian, this translates into English as large, and is effectively a medium-size beverage.  Both hot and cold drinks can be sold in this size, which holds 16 ounces.
  • Tall – This size beverage is available for both hot and cold beverages, and it can hold 12 ounces.
  • Short – This size is only available for hot beverages, and holds a volume of 8 ounces.
  • Demi – This minuscule size is exclusively for Espressos, and can hold three ounces. 

Of course, sizes are subject to the availability of containers at each shop, and we advise our readers to inquire about the available sizes at every location, in advance of ordering. 

What types of beverages can I order at Starbucks? 

At Starbucks coffee shops, our readers can order an array of beverages, ranging from coffee to tea, iced teas, frappuccinos, smoothies, and other iced drinks. 

Namely, Starbucks is famed for its Italian-styled coffees such as Espressos, Americanos, Caffe Misto, Lattes, and others. 

Other beverages include hot teas such as green tea, earl grey, and herbals teas. 

Cold beverages include frappuccinos of different flavors, refreshing drinks made with fruits and other ingredients, and iced teas. The Starbucks menu has many flavors that our readers can peruse to see if any pique their interest. 

Additionally, beverages made with milk can be prepared with dairy or non-dairy milk, to suit their patrons’ dietary preferences and nutritional needs. 

What foods does Starbucks sell?

Starbucks sells many types of foods such as pastries, doughnuts, velvet cake, turkey sandwiches, grilled cheese sandwiches, paninis, baguettes, muffins (savory and sweet), cookies, bagels, baked bundts, croissants, tarts, cheesecake, and even salads. 

Naturally, the availability of these foods will depend on supplies in each shop, and therefore, our readers should inquire what foods are available in each establishment, before ordering.  

Where does Starbucks operate? 

Starbucks operates in 80 countries throughout the world and has over 32,000 shops. Founded in Seattle in 1971, the chain of coffee shops soon grew to have many establishments in other states, and by 1996, it opened its first shop in Tokyo, marking the first of many international locations.

Soon, Starbucks would expand to the UK, Germany, France, and other countries in Europe, Asia, America, and Australia. 

What should I bear in mind when ordering food or drinks from Starbucks? 

When ordering food from Starbucks, our readers should always bear in mind their nutritional needs, and as a general guideline, avoid foods and beverages that are high in empty calories, added sugars, sodium, and refined carbohydrates.

This may imply that our readers should be cautious when ordering sweetened beverages of larger sizes, and sweeten their beverages in moderation.

Also, in the case of ordering pastries and other baked goods, our readers should consider what option best suits their nutritional needs, as some pastries may be decorated with glazings and sugar coatings that may be high in empty calories.

We urge our readers to consume Starbucks as a small part of a balanced diet and combine its products with a healthy, active lifestyle. 

In the case of caffeinated beverages, we recommend that our readers follow general recommendations and don’t exceed the suggested daily dose of 400 milligrams of caffeine.
