Why Starbucks Baristas Put The Syrup At The Bottom Of Your Cup
by NICOLE ANDERSON
If you’ve ever paid close attention to your drink being made at Starbucks, you may have noticed that the baristas always pump the syrup into the bottom of the cups.
According to a statement given to MegaMenu from a Starbucks representative, thinner syrups like vanilla or hazelnut are poured first so they can meld with the warm espresso shots.
The heat from the espresso helps dissolve and emulsify the syrups or sauces in the drink. Even in iced tea, the syrups are still added to the bottom of the cup.
Some specific drinks, like the caramel macchiato, include caramel drizzle on top of the milk foam. These are specifically crafted with a particular flavor profile in mind.
