foam, how i love thee

whenever i go to suckbucks, it's a crapshoot. i never know if my chai tea latte is going to be good or not. i've blogged about this before... and the fact that i've turned into the type of person who goes to suckbucks, still amazes me. but not more than the fact that i am not only the type of person who goes there (and bitches about it), but that i'm the person who goes there and is a SNOB about it. i am a fucking starbucks drink snob.

i like foam. extra foam. but i don't like it poured into the drink. i like it scooped by the spoonful on the top. and i don't like the crappy foam either. the foam that is basically just a bunch of air. the moment it hits your cup, it disappears. the foam that has no taste. no consistancy. no texture. the foam that is worthless and should die a horrible death. the foam i always seem to get when i order extra foam. yeah, that one sucks and it pisses me off.

but this..... this is the picture of perfection.
foam i love
this is the foam that makes angels sing and the heavens clear. foam you could dive into and live in! this is the foam of the gods. it's thick. it's sweet. i want to bathe in it. i love this foam. i actually have to stop myself from licking my computer screen. i want to lick it so badly! but i won't...... i think.
omg, someone shoot me.

Coffee Bean definitely kicks Starbuck's ass, but the Starbuck's drive-thru is just so darn convenient. Have you tried the Pumpkin Spice Latte? That one's worth a trip to Starbucks.

very impressive foam, my dear

Alison said...

I've never had one of those. Are they good?

My favorite is the caramel frappucino. But I only get one about once every three months because I can't afford that place.

Daddy Dan said...

Well excuuuuuuuuse me! =)

My wife is mostly a tea drinker but she sometimes has a latte.

Starshine said...

The chai tea lattes from Starbucks are my fav drink they serve. You're right, though...they don't always taste the same. Sometimes, they're nice and strong and other times too watered down for my taste. :) Still, it is the drink that tastes like autumn to me.

You should keep that picture with you (on your phone?) and when you go to order, let them know that this is the foam you expect. Sure, they'll know you as anal foam girl (dirty!), but it might help you get the right foam every time. :)

anal foam girl! that had me cracking up so bad...at work!

Assertagirl said...

ha! I've never heard it called "suckbucks" before. I must never tell my husband that or he'll call it that forever and I'll want to kill him. Can't let him ruin the Caramel Machiatto bliss.

omg I thought it was only my starbucks who can only make a good chai about 1 out of every 3 times I go. I have found if I go early in the morning I get a good one. If I got late in the afternoon evening I get a shitty one.

Nothing wrong with loving Starbucks.

I am a snob about it too. And to think I used to be one of those anti-starbucks people in high school. The 17 year old me would be sorely dissapointed. Then again, she was drinking crap coffee.

CAT said...

chai is the bomb. I love starbucks............LOVE IT I TELL YOU.

Gidge said...

mmmm starbucks.
Yuppie crack sold at $5 a cup.
How do I love thee?

Seriously, I used to just to go there to eye the tattoed, bed-headed hotties who made up my coffee and complimented my beverage choices.

I quit going to the one in Tampa when they started hiring dudes over 25.

I want my coffee slaves to be 19 and hungover.
