The TikTok Coffee Craze That's Driving Baristas Everywhere Crazy



After a recent tweet went viral for showing off a customer's very detailed custom order, Starbucks baristas and loyal coffee drinkers alike have come to an agreement: TikTok's trendy drink ideas need to go. A tweet from the account @ProjectJosiee quickly gained national attention with a photo captioned, "On today’s episode of why I wanna quit my job," showed a complicated Starbucks mobile beverage order from a customer only known as Edward. The Venti Caramel Ribbon Crunch Frappuccino demands all the bells and whistles: extra Frappuccino chips, whipped cream, ice and several additional pumps of sugary syrups, including caramel, cinnamon dulce and honey. It even wants the beverage to be "double blended" and include banana, heavy cream and five pumps of Frappuccino roast coffee. Baristas are saying these drinks aren't just a hassle for Starbucks employees to make, but that they also make lines move slower and contribute to longer wait times for other customers. Baristas everywhere are saying, “What the Frapp?"
