There are many coffee variations available at Starbucks, and each one comes with a unique flavor profile, texture, and consistency. So, can you order French vanilla coffee from the Starbucks app?
Yes, you can, but not directly off the online menu. French vanilla coffee is among the most popular drinks on the Starbucks menu. However, this drink is not available on the app, but you can make specific changes to your order so that you get French vanilla coffee when you order directly from the Starbucks app.
I had, for a pretty long time, been trying to order this drink from Starbucks through the app, but I had a difficult time doing so because I could not find it on the app menu. A barista friend later explained to me that all I had to do was ask for a pump of vanilla syrup and a pump of hazelnut syrup along with my coffee of choice.
To order a french vanilla coffee (caffe latte), ask the barista for a grande vanilla latte, with two pumps of vanilla syrup, and two pumps of hazelnut syrup. If you do not like your drink very sweet, ask the barista for one pump of the hazelnut syrup.
French vanilla coffee is essentially any coffee drink that is sweetened by mixing both vanilla and hazelnut syrup. When you order your drink, a caffe latte, for instance, instead of asking for vanilla syrup only, ask the barista to add a few pumps of hazelnut syrup. This combination is what qualifies a coffee drink as French vanilla coffee.
Here is a step-by-step guide.
Step 1: If you do not have the app on your mobile device, go on and download it on the AppStore or on Google Play depending on your phone’s OS. Once downloaded, proceed to create an account for yourself.
Step 2: Enable location services for easy store identification as well as order delivery.
Step3: Make your order by clicking on the Order icon at the bottom of your screen. You will be required to specify the temperature of the drink (hot or cold), the size of the cup, the type of roast you want, the type of milk (if you want it), and the flavored syrup or sauce. This is where you will indicate the number of vanilla and hazelnut pumps you want. Finally, you can ask for other flavorings, spices, and toppings to go with your drink if you want some.
Well, yes, and no. French vanilla drinks are largely identified by the two distinct flavors, but that is not all that is unique about them. While there is no obvious rule governing what french vanilla drinks contain, they are mostly creamy drinks that are topped with frothy milk. The combination of vanilla and hazelnut syrup is oftentimes accompanied by sweet and creamy decadence. For this reason, many people will ask for such additions as heavy cream, whipped cream, cold foam, and full cream milk in their French vanilla coffee drinks.
If you are looking to have a Starbucks coffee drink with a unique flavor profile, you should consider ordering a French vanilla version. The flavor is unique and goes well with many other toppings and additions. It is also pretty easy to order, both in-house and on the app.
How many pumps of syrup are in French vanilla coffee?
The number of pumps for each coffee is determined by the size of the cup ordered. A tall cup has two pumps of vanilla syrup and one of hazelnut syrup, a grande has two of vanilla syrup and two of hazelnut syrup, a venti has three of vanilla syrup and two of hazelnut syrup, and three of the hazelnut syrup if the venti is iced. You can also alter the combination to have more hazelnut syrup if you prefer.
Does Starbucks French vanilla coffee have hazelnut?
No, the drink does not contain actual hazelnuts, but it is sweetened using hazelnut-flavored syrup.
Is Starbucks French vanilla coffee too sweet?
No, it is not. Even though it contains two types of flavor, they are balanced so that each order comes with the recommended number of syrup pumps for its cup size. If, however, you order more pumps of syrup, your drink is going to be sweeter than it should be.
Should I order French vanilla coffee when I am on a diet?
You can order French vanilla coffee when you are on a diet. It mainly depends on the diet you are on. If you are looking to consume fewer calories, ask the barista for sugar-free syrup in your coffee.
Can I order French vanilla coffee the next day?
Yes, you can order this drink the day after your diet, and you can have it on consecutive days without any effects.
Is Starbucks French vanilla healthy?
Seeing as it is mainly just sugar syrup, it cannot be classified as a healthy addition to your drink.
