It’s 3 o’clock in the morning!

Life is too short for bad coffee.

Praise God for misunderstandings

This morning, I went to get coffee from the Starbucks across the street from my work. I ordered a Triple Tall Breve Latte.

Now before I continue with my story, let me just say how annoying Starbucks can be.

The word “Latte” is Italian for milk, right? So, a Cafe Latte is espresso and milk. Make sense? And a Cafe Breve has half and half instead of milk. So what is a Breve Latte supposed to be? Milk with half and half? Well, that’s what Starbucks seems to think a Breve is supposed to be called. I always go there and say “I’ll get a tall breve.” To which the response is usually, “Latte”. I learned pretty quick to just humor them and say yes. But for a while I would be like, “No, I don’t want 2% in it, I want half and half. Cafe Breve”. Punks.

Anyway, that’s my rant. Oh blah dee, oh blah da, life goes on.

So, I ordered a “Triple Tall Breve Latte”, but they made me a “Triple Tall Vanilla Latte”. Oops. Needless to say I scored a free drink. I’m lovin’ that.
