How Starbucks Baristas Are Hired

Okay, okay. Before you guys start hating, just know I worked for Starbucks for, like, 8 years, and I think this is HILARIOUS.
Fact: One time someone told me their name was 'Pam' and I accidentally wrote 'Map'. I was really tired. Don't judge me too hard.

So true! My favorite is when they ask your name at the register, but the bar is busy calling out "grande half-caffe latte" or "Venti Kids-temp hot cocoa" And everyone's just staring at the cups collecting on the bar. So much for names...@danidee

lmao! I cant!
Yeah I have its one of those drinks that require a certain taste ha, I'm not a coffee person at heart but I'm willing to try It haha
@marshalledgar Lmao, that was totally me as a barista. I hated calling out names because I assumed that 90% of the names on the cups were going to be wrong.

The Christmas Latte to Rule Them All
I've talked about this cafe before, and I'll talk about it again. All That Sweets is hands down my favorite dessert cafe on Earth. Watch my video review here or read below^^ Today I went alone so I passed on a slice of the strawberry shortcake but look how adorable is it! Their cakes are always light and creamy, though the flavors change daily! I've seen chocolate, vanilla, and even kiwi cakes. Instead I opted for one of their amazing macarons. Because I came late in the day, my only option was the chocolate raspberry "merry xmas" heart macaron, but I probably would have chosen that anyway. These flavors also vary with the season but every single one I've ever tried has been absolutely delicious. But of course, the star of the show is my Christmas Tree Latte <3 Their lattes are amazingly intricate, and they have a dozen of them on the menu at all times. The homemade (delicious) whipped cream is covered in melted chocolate, sprinkles, and meringue cookies. I seriously thought I hated meringue until I tried these babies. Now I can't get enough! They sell these for the month of December, and then usually move on to make snowflake or other winter themed lattes. All year 'round they offer rose, raincloud, and even coral styled lattes! This year they also introduced a gingerbread man latte that I was tempted to get, but I had to stick to my traditional tree :) You can also find me here: Tumblr Instagram Twitter Facebook SnapChat: cari.cakez
