3 Secrets that Most Coffee Shops Don’t Want You to Know

3 Secrets that Most Coffee Shops Don’t Want You to Know

February 01, 2021

There’s always a secret to a good business! I know we all love coffee and we’re all a simp for it! Yes? Yes. But did you know that most coffee shops have some secrets that they don’t wanna let us know? Hmm.. not quite right! In this article, I’ll expose their secrets. Are you ready? Here we go!

1. Large Cup Doesn’t Mean More Coffee

Don’t we all have moments when we have to do so much work that we have to get ready for an all-nighter? Make sure that you don’t sleep as you do all these? There’s one simple way to do that for most people. What it is? Drink more caffeine!

So your decision is to go to the nearest coffee shop, buy a larger cup because that will contain more caffeine than the small one right? Wrong.

You'll indeed get more caffeine if you order a large plain black coffee than a smaller one. However, in other drinks that is definitely not the case. For instance, you ordered a cappuccino from Starbucks, you simply get 2 shots of espresso whether its size is a venti or a grande.

The space difference is just packed with milk or foam. The same thing happens with most coffee shops as well.

So what can you do about it? Ask the bartender directly how many shots of espresso you want for your cup.

2. Why Specialty Drinks Coffee Are Expensive?

If you’re a coffee lover you must know that coffee is really expensive especially when it becomes a habit. Imagine paying $5-10 a day with only one cup? Not just that, it's more expensive when it's an artisan drink or a specialty.

Though there's no reason at all to hate coffee, actually coffee beans are expensive enough, as well as the other add-ins such as sugar, cream, and milk. Besides, artisan drinks are made by experienced people and not just by a simple barista, this means that their salary costs more.

To run the business, what they do is to underprice some coffee and overprice the specialty and artisan coffee. This is to keep the customers coming back for the underpriced coffee and when more people come back, they usually order the specialty or artisan. So it's a great way to play the business game.

3. Don’t order sweet treats along with your coffee

Ordering only a drink itself is pretty unfulfilling. Who would not want to grab a sweet treat alongside it right? For most coffee shops, they are muffins, croissant, and scones.

So why not order them?

Well, you can still do it though, it’s just there are reasons why not to.
Most baristas mentioned in Market Watch that coffee shops don't usually make these treats and even when they do, it's not that much of a good treat since their forte is coffee.

The treats might be sitting under the glass for a long time before you decide to order them. Not just this, these treats are also high in calories so it's a little unhealthy especially when ordered all the time.
