It’s offical – All Starbucks in the city are completely out of Iced Venti cups. The translation for normal people is the large size of the clear cups they put cold drinks in. The coffee maker person who I talked to this morning said the situation was critical and they don’t know when they will be receiving replacements. If you try ordering a large iced drink they will default you to the medium size if you aren’t careful. The trick around this is you have to specifically request the large size of the paper cups which they will do, but only if you ask for it. I was firmly warned this morning that “cold drinks cause the paper cups to fall apart very quickly.” I’m not sure why cold liquid is more destructive to their cups than hot liquid but there you have it. If you need a large iced coffee beverage from Starfucks in the next few days this is info you are going to want to have on hand.
