For some reason a super hot, frothy coffee from those huge chains that you find on every block all tastes so much better than those you make at home! Most people pick up one of these tasty coffee’s daily, whether it is on the way to work or a go to catch up the venue, but do you really know all the tricks of the trade and are you being sold short with your already probably overpriced latte? Check out some of the tricks of the trade here!
More Coffee To Go
It has now been made official that when you buy any size drink to go, you are actually getting more than if you bought that same drink to drink in! This is due to differences in the glass sizes in comparison to paper cup sizes, but despite this both coffee’s cost the same price!
When this builder who shot this video wondered where the extra 30p it costs to have a large express drink went, he soon realised that the regular drink cups hold exactly the same amount as the large, despite looking like a bigger mug! This is a very clever trick of the eye that makes it looks as though the large mug is bigger but really the cup is narrower.
We all get roped in by the lovely displays and the tasty looking cakes, but actually when would we ever find it acceptable to spend over £3 on a single biscuit, when you could buy an entire pack for under a third of that!
When ordering an iced fruity drink, you might think it looks a lot and then in the space of a few sips you’ve drunk it all, this is because the ice is taking up so much space that you aren’t actually getting much drink in your cup. Normally the drink itself will come cold with the use of cold ingredients so either ask for no ice, for a bigger drink or less ice to get that fair balance.
Ever get bored of that same old vanilla latte? Well do your research and you will open a whole new door to the world of secret menus, due to the extra work and probably extra costs involved they are not on those giant boards to order from. However, people have requested different mixes of syrups, milks and coffee blends and trust us when we say you have to try them out!
