In the age of Instagram, Snapchat and TikTok, people are all about ordering over-the-top concoctions at Starbucks (remember the Unicorn Frappuccino?). It’s not surprising that there’s a secret menu for fun and eye-catching beverages at the coffee shop chain. But you know who may not be a fan of the drinks that might get you more likes on social media? Your Starbucks barista, because these orders are complicated to make.
Still, Starbucks releases new items each season to please its loyal customer base. Meanwhile, the drinks baristas enjoy are actually quite straightforward and toned-down in comparison. According to Grit Daily News, an easy creation that Starbucks baristas love to both make and drink is a Grande Cold Brew with Toffee Nut and Caramel Cold Foam. The Cold Brew apparently adds a kick while the toffee nut and caramel syrup lend sweetness to an otherwise simple beverage.
