UF Starbucks vs. Starbucks vs. Starbucks vs. Starbucks

author-pic at University of Florida  

With so many Starbs locations on campus, it could be hard to decide which one to stop in to for your daily fix. To save you some time during your day, we did an ~in depth~ analysis to finally figure out which one is worth your time.

4.) Little Express:
Let’s be honest, this place is a sad excuse for a Starbucks. They don’t even have baristas, just people who pour coffee. That being said, they can get you whatever you need in under 10 seconds, but don’t stop in here if you want anything other than a boring ass regular coffee or tea.

Overall ranking: 2/5 Starbucks mermaids

3.) Marston:
It’s a good thing we’re ranking them off of barista skill cause if this was based on food they’d get negative stars for all the burnt croissants we’ve been served over the years. They might not get your order right all the time (or any of the time), and it might take you a full class period to get your drink, but at least they always have what you want in stock and a big enough space that you’re not body to body with the person in front of you in line.

Overall ranking: 3/5 Starbucks mermaids

2.) Library West:
When it comes to getting out drinks on time and making sure everything is on point, the baristas at West know what they’re doing. The reason they don’t top the list is because of how often they run out of necessary ingredients. This location has literally run out of ICE before. If the barista can’t even get you an ice water, they aren’t worthy of your time.

Overall ranking: 3.5/5 Starbucks mermaids

1.) Reitz
These baristas got it down packed. They can crank out 15 Tapingo orders in five minutes all while making sure you get your drink before you can even walk from the cashier to the counter. They’re always stocked up on all that you need, and make sure you don’t fall asleep before you get your double espresso shot.

Overall ranking: 5/5 Starbucks mermaids

Whether you’ve pledged your allegiance to one location or just wander in between all of them, we hope this list helped you decide where to stop on your next study break. If all else fails, you can always just get a vanilla mocha from the vending machine in Turlington.
