How To Get A Better Cup Of Coffee At Starbucks

17 Apr

Starbucks is pretty good about not letting their brewed coffee sit too long. I believe it’s around 30 minutes after brew before it gets tossed, which isn’t bad by my standards. However, some believe that 30 min is even too long. Daniel Miessler points out that you can request a pour-over, a well kept secret that requires a longer wait time but yields a more fresher and custom cup of coffee. Some Starbucks locations also offer french press coffee, it usually cost a little more but it’s worth it!
