I work in Starbucks & customers make the same mistake – & it's always to do with one particular drink
A WOMAN who works in Starbuck has revealed the common mistake customers always make.
The barista, who goes by the acronym @_brieta on TikTok, shared a short video where she can be heard revealing the re-offending culprit – the macchiato.
She goes onto explain the main difference between the macchiatos she serves at the popular coffee chain, compared to those customers receive at what she refers to as a "real coffee shop".
In the clip, she says: "And you ask them if they want a traditional macchiato or a Starbucks macchiato, and they say, 'What's the difference?'"
"And I say, 'A traditional macchiato is a shot of espresso with a dollop of foam on top. It's like this big."
The barista then uses her fingers to indicate the size she's referring to and adds: "And a Starbucks macchiato is, like, a caramel latte."

She goes on to say how the majority of customers opt for the "traditional" version but adds that they soon change their mind once the order has been received.
"So I make it for them, and when I hand it to them, they go, 'That's not what I wanted.' And then I say, 'Do you want me to make you a Starbucks macchiato? And they say 'Yeah,'" she continues.
