Latte or mocha. OK, that's easy. Short or tall. OK, easy too. Same with espresso. They're almost self-explanatory. But then there are cappuccino and macchiato and Americano. Though not unique to Starbucks, they likely need some explanation for some folks.
But what about mocha valencia, espresso con panna, frappuccino, breve, and venti (larger than grande)? Are the words for those concoctions the unique concoctions of Starbucks?
I also found this website about Starbucks' drinks. Its self-description:
Since many people seem to be overly confused by the wide variety of options available at Starbucks, I've put together this handy-dandy page to help you figure out what you want without spending hours staring blankly at a menu. It's huge, but that's because there's a lot to choose from, and I've tried to include as much as possible. Of course, a lot of this stuff is trademarked by Starbucks Coffee Co. Drink availability will vary by location.
