Starbucks! (Posted on 2007-08-18) Difficulty: 2 of 5
I like my Starbucks and usually order an Americano, which is made by adding hot water to shots of espresso. The ratios they use are 2 shots for a Tall (12 oz), 3 shots for a Grande (16 oz), and 4 shots for a Venti (20 oz).

If you do the math that is different strengths of coffee depending upon the size ordered. What simple rule do I use when ordering any size to ensure I always receive my coffee of a consistent strength?

Wasteful | Comment 3 of 11 |
One could order the Venti and then call for an empty smaller mug and decant to that size; both an economical and resource waste if not consuming the Venti.

Again, combining a Tall and a Venti gives the strength of a Grande. Decanting to a smaller volume (less than the 32oz) is again wasteful.

Yes, Paul looks like having solved the 'rule'.
