Ever try to memorize all the different lattes and crazy names of coffee served at Starbucks? Well, this customer did… to some extent.
A Starbucks lover who calls himself Dragonblink, also created a comprehensive list to help customers break down names of coffees at Starbucks stores. Ever wonder where these names come from?
Some of these names originate from Ethiopia where the company gets its coffee beans. For years, Ethiopian farmers fought the company to have their names acknowledged with the coffee brand, and to get better prices for their coffee beans. After several protests all over the world, the farmers won.
