Is it just me, or is Starbucks a rip-off?!! Okay, so this will be my last time at Starbucks here in America... I only went this ONE time here in Vegas b/c I felt like having a coffee... It was just an espresso, but WTF?!!! Are espresso's usually this short??!!! I need to find some REAL coffee!!

I hope you realize that I did this post with you in mind and was awaiting your response! ; )

Hi Anne,

It was a decaf... But, it was a TOTAL rip off... I had this similar experience in Del Mar... I asked for a long espresso, but this is their idea of a short espresso... They should just let the darn coffee drip longer!! Oh well.. I'll wait til I"m back in France, you're right and we'll go get some good coffee!

Hi Leesa!

Yes, from what I know about a shot of espresso, this is about it.


However, not being someone who orders espresso, I have no idea how much your suppose to get with a long espresso.

But I have to agree with you, Starbucks (which I love) is getting to be a TOTAL rip-off. My grande coffee is now over $2.00. And the pastries and things are getting smaller and smaller.

That looks about right. A shot of espresso is like a shotglass. It's what they add into your frappuccinos when you ask for shot(s)

scarfux sandwich: 2 slices of sandwich bread, a slice of cheese, a lettuce leaf, some ham and a packet of mayo: $8.20 on debit card.
wishing you had gone to subway for a $5 footlong: priceless.

Hi Leesa,

That's an expensive "shot" of espresso !
You need some little café or breakfast place... or is LV just full of franchises & brand name places ??

It wouldn't look so small if they served it in a smaller cup...


Boo, hiss, at least they could put it in a wee bitty cup to make it less petit!

You give us anything by which to judge the size, but my guess would be that it's the regulation size for an espresso. Espressos are very strong. One doesn't drink as much as (ugh) American coffee.
