One customer ordered an "iced venti caramel macchiato. 15 [pumps vanilla syrup], made with HEAVY WHIPPING CREAM, barely any ice, one shot, add whip, extra [caramel drizzle]," Reddit user kayteeee said.
An extreme White Mocha
Another customer took Starbucks' White Chocolate Mocha drink to a whole new level.
Redditor ComputerPaint described the drink as "a hot venti White Mocha with 10 Sugar in the Raw, and 10 pumps of white mocha... So thick."
A strange daily routine
kayala81 described a regular customer who ordered a strange custom drink daily. They ordered a "venti 9 shot, 1 pump mocha, nonfat, no whip, with exactly 4 shakes of cinnamon stirred in [...] every single day."
All of the sweeteners
A duo at one Starbucks locations frequently ordered "two trenta green teas with 43 and 47 Splendas respectively," BionicBeans said.
Topped with sugar
An anonymous Redditor described a particularly strange request from a customer. They ordered a "venti vanilla latte, nonfat milk, whipped cream, 7 Splendas; 6 mixed in, one sprinkled on top of the whipped cream 'to make it crunchy.'"
The most complicated order
One customer's very specific order was " an iced, Ristretto, 10 shot, venti, with breve, 5 pump vanilla, 7 pump caramel, 4 Splenda, [and] poured, not shaken," according to hbizzy.
Too much chai
Another Redditor described a drink packed with a lot more flavored syrup than usual. "[The drink was a] 25 pump iced chai... she pretty much wanted the syrup over ice. It was nasty, and [the customer] got angry when we charged her for extra chai," stephmook said.
Two drinks in one
Despite their barista's expert advice, another customer insisted on a combination of two different drinks.
"I once I had to make a 'half caramel machiatto, half hazelnut latte.' I really did try to lead her in the direction of a caramel macchiato with hazelnut syrup, but nope. She wanted half one drink and half another," JMan719 said.
An unlikely combination
Some drink orders are simple, but still strange. "A venti black coffee with 2 chai tea bags. Simple. Gross," Bwat4ou said.
Lots of matcha and no foam
One customer ordered a "venti 7 pump vanilla soy 12 scoop matcha 180 degree NO FOAM green tea latte," pangirl99 said. "Another partner had to make this drink about four times because he kept saying there's too much foam, or there wasn't enough matcha," they continued.
