Your drink is handcrafted when you order it. That means that the barista has made it specifically for you, using fresh ingredients and personalized instructions. The barista handcrafts your drink by adding your chosen ingredients, then pouring them in a specific way to make sure they come out right every time.
The process starts with your order. If you’re not sure what you want, ask the barista for help! They have lots of experience working with different types of drinks, so they can walk you through their favorites or suggest something new for you if it’s your first time there. You can also look at our menu or check out our website for some ideas on what might be good for you!
What Is A Handcrafted Drink At Starbucks?
A handcrafted drink at Starbucks is a drink that’s made using fresh ingredients, and it’s also made with care by the barista who’s preparing it. The process of making a handcrafted drink starts when the barista takes a sip of water and then takes a second to smell the coffee beans he or she is about to grind. Then, they put those beans into their grinder, which is equipped with an extra-fine burr grinder to ensure that every bean is ground exactly right.
After that step, it’s time for steaming! The barista pours boiling water directly over those freshly ground beans, letting them steep for just under two minutes before removing them from heat and letting them rest for another minute before adding any milk (if applicable).
The final step is adding all of the ingredients—milk or not—and mixing it all together until it tastes just right!

What is the difference between Starbucks’ handcrafted drinks and their pre-made drinks?
Starbucks’ handcrafted drinks and their pre-made drinks are both delicious, but there are some differences in the way they’re made.
First, when you order a handcrafted drink, you can customize it to your liking. For example, if you want extra foam in your latte or less ice in your iced coffee, all you have to do is ask! And if you’re feeling indecisive? No problem—you can get one of the many seasonal specials that change every few weeks.
You might also notice that a handcrafted drink is always made with fresh milk and real fruit juice. These drinks are made fresh every time they’re ordered—sometimes they even come out faster than pre-made ones!

Pre-made drinks are made in advance, so they contain less milk and fewer ingredients, which means they’re less customizable than handcrafted drinks. Handcrafted drinks are made with freshly-brewed espresso shots and milk, so they can be customized to your liking. A handcrafted drink also has more foam than other drinks.
Handcrafted drinks are made with premium ingredients, so they’re better than the other options we have on the menu. Plus, you can customize them to your preference!
