    Grande Americano (no-room)

    however, im now officially an Uncommon Ground fan vs Starbucks.
    cheaper, and imo tastes better (and just beside work).

    and by "freak out", you mean ask you whether you would like a venti or a grande?

    exaggeration much.

    Say: "Grand-EH Caramel Frappicino, please."

    If they ask, "Do you want whip or caramel on top?, say "Yes"

    Easy as pie ... and tastes even better!


    If you don't want something coffee related, their strawberry/banana smoothies right now are pretty good too.

    I'll take you there sometime if you want. :)
