Now that you've learned the basic Starbucks terminologies from my first blog entry, it's time for me to help you find your favorite. Click here to read part 1 of this series. 

There are  a lot of choices at Starbucks. Some prefer decaffeinated, lighter in calories, or made with organic products when available. There are four main ways to customize an order: Espresso, Syrup, Milk, and other options. We will start at the heart of Starbuck's coffee drinks - the Espresso inside. Today is all about Espresso choices.

Regular: This is the standard shot served in every espresso drink at Starbucks. It has a sweet and intense taste with a hint of caramel.
Decaf: Want the flavor but not the full-on effect of an espresso? This will be it.
Extra shots: Adding a shot or two increases coffee flavor. A drink with two shots is called a double, three shots a triple, so on and so forth.
Half-caf: Espresso with half the amount of caffeine.
Ristretto: A shot that is a short pull of espresso capturing only the sweetest part.
