One of Starbucks popular drinks is the Nitro Cold Brew and with the launch of the Pumpkin Creme Cold Brew, it has spiked in popularity.
Before you rush off to order one, you might want to know that Starbucks Says You Can’t Order a Venti Nitro Cold Brew, Here’s Why…
When I first found out that you couldn’t order the Nitro Cold Brew in Venti size I thought it might be because of the caffeine content, but it’s not.
Then I immediately thought how strange it was that Starbucks itself has said that you can’t order it yet, Starbucks employees are supposed to say ‘yes’ to just about anything you ask for. Yet, they aren’t supposed to with this drink…
But, the real reason, according to an interview, is that Starbucks says the perfect ratio of the creamy, frothy texture and the nitro brew taste is completely off if you order a larger size of the popular drink.
That means, if you order it, you won’t be getting that yummy, bitter taste and will end up not liking your drink and probably end up ordering something else.
The exact words from a Starbucks spokesperson was:
Nitro Cold Brew is only served in tall and grande sizes to offer customers the best experience of the beverage as with venti sizes, the drink loses its “nitro cascade” – meaning the drink loses the creamy, frothy texture and “cascade of bubbles”(Source)
So, sure, you might be able to ask for it but you probably don’t want to do that. If you really want more of this frothy drink, just order 2 separate sizes, maybe a tall and a short (which BTW is a secret drink size).
