We're sick of boring old vanilla venti soy low-foam extra-drip-a-ccinos. Time to update these suckers, says we! And feel free to ask your local barista for these by name. She'll definitely know what you're talking about.*
LaTaye: Coffee that's so hot, it kind of makes you forget your name. It's also oddly good at musical theater.
Cafe Americano: 256-oz. super-sized blend with extra cream and extra sugar. As you'd expect, it's totally reviled by all other coffee nationalities.
Red Eye: Regular coffee laced with chlorine, ragweed, and A Walk To Remember.
Pink Eye: Stronger than a Red Eye, and garnished with a flaky crust that lasts 7-10 days.
Caramel Mock-iatto: Dessert drink in which your coffee order is repeated back to you snidely; the barista then carelessly clobbers you with caramel. [Thanks for that one, Emily Winter!]
Half-Calf: A steaming hot cup that's half-coffee, half-veal.
Flava Shot: Coffee infused with a large clock and gold teeth. Not to be confused with a Flay-vor Shot, which involves the coffee being skinned alive.
Chai Latte: A doubtful, smug latte. As in:
You: I think maybe I'll go for a run later.
Latte: Chai, right...
*She will definitely not know what you're talking about.
