What Sox learned was that after noon Starbucks no longer brews decaf coffee. If you order a decaf, they offer an Americano for the same price as the regular drip coffee. I’ve tested this a couple times, and as someone who likes Americano’s this is awesome.
I learned something interesting about Starbucks recently. Actually, Sox learned this, and I have confirmed it. After I switched to decaf and I head out for a coffee I usually get an Americano.
