Whole Milk

So I’m about to run out for a coffee when I’m given a factoid I didn’t know about.

Apparently some time last year Starbucks stopped putting whole milk in their lattes by default and switched to 2%. If you want whole milk you have to request it.

Now historically I haven’t frequented Starbucks, so it’s easy to have missed the memo, but now I know why I wasn’t so crazy about their lattes as of late. Granted, I still think they are below par compared to most mom-and-pop shops who actually take the time to foam the milk right and do latte art. But hopefully they’ll at least suck a little less when they are the only option.
