    Starbucks doesn't even put those on their menu. I've only seen them locally at the coffee stand down at the dock, and I think that's out of business for good.

    •  I'd never heard of a breve latte. Even a latte is (2+ / 0-)

      already pushing the concept of being called coffee, considering that it is 75-85% milk.  And to use half and half in place of the milk???  I think that drink would give Long John Silver's "Big Catch" competition as the most unhealthful fast food in America.

      breve is my coffee drink when i'm out and about.  a quad short caramel breve no foam.  it's bad enough that i have to specify "no foam" on a breve, but we'll ignore that for now.

      everywhere i go out here anymore ordering my drink is reminiscent of an abbot & costello routine.

      "quad short caramel breve no foam, please."

      "okay...blahblah breve latte."

      "no, no latte; i want a breve"

      "right.  breve latte."

      "okay, we're talking 1/2 & 1/2, not milk, right?"

      it's !@#$%& asinine.  breve means espresso with steamed 1/2 & 1/2.  latte means espresso with steamed milk.  "breve latte" is like ordering a pepsi sprite.

      and of course it's not on their menu; i'm sure plain ol' "breve" and "latte" are much too boring for them, what with their vente mochawhozits and what not.

      but i just know they started this "breve latte" idiocy.  nobody who actually knows/cares about coffee would do such a stupid thing.

      i really, really, really despise starbucks.
