    I'm a Starbucks Barista - Have a Question about Coffee? Ask Away!

    I figured this is perfect since we have a coffee sub-forum that I would offer my input on good coffee blends, advice, how to make your coffee better, why your coffee might not taste so good, upcoming Starbucks coffee and offers, etc.

    Some Coffee pointers
    -Make sure you ground it for what machine you have
    -Buy beans and ground only as you use if possible for ultimate freshness
    -Like cigars, know the undertone flavors of coffee to chose the right coffee with your meal or the right creamer flavor
    -Use filtered water
    -Use the right amount of coffee to water

    Starbucks Coffee I'd Recommend
    -Casi Cielo (offered in February only) this is rich, lemon and chocolate-like very elegant, is fantastic with Hershey's syrup
    -Three Region (offered in spring time) this is a nice floral and herbal coffee which goes well with Irish Cream creamer, very refreshing
    -Kimodo Dragon (all year) if you are looking for some spice in the winter drink this with some spice on top like nutmeg or cinnamon
    -Verona (all year) this is a light/blonde roast which works well with just some cream and sugar for something crisp and light in the afternoon

    I want salted caramel hot chocolate year round!

    Well, we just buy caramel hot chocolate and then have our own sea salt pepper mill in the car

    Thanks for the pointers!

    Caramel automatically improves the taste of just about anything.

    Salted caramel makes it taste like cracker jacks in a glass

    Starbucks K-Cups are some of the better ones we've tried.

    I always make my own using a Gaggia machine, love all the steam and noise. The only way to get EXACTLY what you want of a morning. Starbucks in the UK is somewhat disappointing, the coffee is stale and EEEEEEEEEERRRRG, I sure hope its better your side.

    PS if you are a barista Ill have a single malt thanks, as that means bar tender in italia.

    burnt coffee = bad taste...ie.. the "BOLD" coffee's suck balls. Best flavor is going to be the light to medium roasts guys. Also roast your own, it's awesome!!!!

    I hope Allise wants to be my best friend, lol I'm a 4 shot over ice add milk 2 packets of splenda kinda guy.
