Help deciphering / translating Starbucks - Costa terminology

OK I've just about mastered the art of ordering some of the ******** drinks available in the local starbucks, but imagine my horror when forced to visit something called 'Costa'

Please could someone tell me how to order a (Starbucks speak) Cream Caramel Frappuccino in Costa talk. It's a iced drink, but not one of the coffee ones.

Thanks in advance, and lots of rep for anyone who can solved this major life issue for me.

Walk out of Costa, turn left, walk 20 yards where there's bound to be a Starbucks, order correct drink

Well I kinda agree, but I've got a real sudden addiction to these things, and starbucks is not as prevalent here as Costa :(

Thank you. I might go for Caramel Crunch as I'm told its caramel and biscuit rather than caramel and nuts?
#22
yes that is a good one too - make sure they put the crunchy bits on top of the cream it certainly makes a lovely drink in the sun

OK Final questions....

1) Do you get a straw.

2) How do you say Frescato's

Rep for you by the way :)

yes you get a straw - and if you want more than one straw they are on the counter beside where you collect your drink from - you say it as it reads - except its not 'to' at the end but pronounced 'toe' so you need to pronounce it - fress car toe -

Next time Ryanair do their £1 flights, suggest you go over to Milan for a proper coffee, you'll get the whole thing and change for your £3 at Starbucks :thumbsup:
