    What? Baristas that don't appreciate acidity? Acidity is usually associated with high quality coffee. I hope they are mistaking acidity with sourness

    Tbh girl in the orange hair is the only who knows how to taste taste it! It takes a loooong time to learn the whole process of coffee and a year isnt even enough! Just to be a coffee master at starbucks you need to be certified! At work we need to taste test every single week so we dont loose the taste but its not even pushed onto baristas to learn this! They get a card with what the blend is, what it smells, tastes and you basically repeat this to the costumer! Its ok not to be a coffee expert! Lol

    a guy working at starbucks is not called a BARISTA !!!

  • TheDarkBrutal
    TheDarkBrutal Month ago

    IF they work at Starbucks, then they aren't really a barista. They barely even know what coffee is. Remove all of the corporate procedures, and they'd be lost in what/how to make coffee. This would have been more interesting with people who actually know what they're talking about.

    Maybe get some real baristas next time, there are people who dedicate their lives to the pursuit of good coffee. They may have been better suited to this video. Saying that acidity is "not welcome" is so damaging to an industry that is trying to change its identity, at least at the high end

    Starbucks is nasty. It’s not called “Charbucks” for no reason. Might as well be drinking battery acid.

      Allison Holly pike sucks. The espresso sucks. It’s cheap and gross. So so gross. Some of the other beans are actually good. The new sirens blend is actually pretty dang great. Even reserve pike is good. But pike is so so so so so so nasty.

      "I taste dirt and sweat" that's your own coffee you idiot. Seriously, such an entitled brat. With clearly no love for coffee. I wonder what would happen if you gave him dark roasted robusta.

    “i think i was supposed to get things right”
    i enjoyed rachel my getting them right and describing the favors and stuff vs getting them right just to get them right. she was far more enjoyable in this taste test on that level.

    TBH: anyone who drinks coffee, just bc it is darker does not make it better, Starbucks is far by the worst coffee, DD is the best - it is consistent and a good blend well at least from my area

  • Voracity

    the coffee's not even hot and it's served in a clear glass? What the F. They should get fresh coffee and do this

    • Aubrey-Rose Stacy
      Aubrey-Rose Stacy Month ago +5

      Voracity just a fun fact, good coffee will have a building flavor complexity as it cools. say they pour the coffee out of an insulated carafe into these cups, that would lower it from 195f-200f to around 175-180f. If coffee is too hot, you can't get the flavor profile and only the heat!

    They all don't know anything about coffee! And the one guy I would never want to work with at Starbucks.

  • caityvae

    Your best bet to get good coffee is to go to a locally owned specialty shop. Any fast food joints just aren't going to have good coffee. Starbucks can be decent if the barista cares enough to learn the coffee, but the odds of that happening are very slim. Going to a specialty shop, you'll find people who know what they're doing, have extensive training in the art and science of coffee, and get super excited when teaching people about coffee. A good test is to ask the barista what they're favorite thing to make is, or just any question about the science of it. If you see them light up and get excited, you've come to the right place.

    It would have been smarter to give them 5 blank cups and have them try it in a group and then rank them instead of them try each and guess what each one is.
