A Starbucks worker shared the chain's little-known facts.The lead Starbucks barista shared five facts about popular menu items on her TikTok channel @swaze9089.
@swaze9089 told Newsweek he wanted to teach people about Starbucks and coffee. "The response surprised me."
Starbucks' macchiatos aren't traditional. Macchiatos are espresso with foamed milk. Starbucks' Latte Macchiato and Caramel Macchiato are mostly milk with espresso.
Baristas at other shops are angry because Starbucks customers purchase an ordinary macchiato and then remark it's not like a Starbucks version.
Barista's second fact: blonde espresso contains more caffeine. Starbucks' blonde espresso uses Latin American and East African beans.
