Starbucks Wakes Up, Smells Coffee

NOTE: POST CONTAINS LITTLE-KNOWN FACT

Citing customer complaints, Starbucks has reversed itself on eliminating 12-ounce "tall"-sized drinks from its drive-through menus.

The original move was supposedly aimed at simplifying the menus, but coffee drinkers didn't appreciate seeing the 16-ounce "grande" cup as their smallest option.

Now, while we're on the topic of Starbucks' efforts to prod customers toward oversized beverages, we'd like to take this opportunity to propagate the coffee chain's greatest secret: There is a size smaller than "tall." It's called "short," and while it's not on any menu, it's a revelation for latte and espresso drinkers.

As Slate pointed out back in 2006, the 8-ounce "short" contains just as much espresso as its 12-ounce cousin, but is cheaper and better-tasting for using less milk. Try it with two shots, and you'll never want to bother with the bigger sizes again.
