Yes, you can order half-caff coffee on the Starbucks app. Half-caff refers to coffee blends with a half-and-half blend of caffeinated and decaffeinated coffee beans. However, not all Starbucks drinks can be ordered as half-caff off the app because not all Starbucks drinks are available decaffeinated e.g. the Starbucks cold brew, refreshers, and teas. Only drinks such as hot/iced espressos and Frappuccinos can be ordered half-caff. That’s probably not the news you wanted to hear 😔 but the app still has great variety.
