Buying coffee from Starbucks isn’t the most affordable option if you need coffee in your system. The most expensive drink they have at Starbucks and Starbucks Reserve cost P210 and P270 respectively. But if you don’t have more than a hundred bucks to spend on coffee, this is the cheapest Starbucks drink you can order at any Starbucks store.
Cheapest Starbucks drink: Brewed Coffee
No frills, no fuss. A Short-sized brewed coffee is the cheapest coffee you can order from Starbucks, priced at P100. A Short size, just in case you didn’t know, is the smallest Starbucks cup but it’s only available for hot beverages and is off-menu, so just ask the Starbucks barista for it!
If you’re the type who likes your coffee on the sweeter side (like Starbucks Frappuccinos) but you’re on a tight budget, you can settle for sugar packets to at least give you that sugar rush you want. Experiment with what’s available at Starbucks’ condiment section!
Cheapest Starbucks Reserve drinks: Brewed Pour Over Coffee and Clover Brewed Coffee
If your go-to Starbucks store is a Starbucks Reserve, the cheapest drinks on the menu are the Tall-sized Brewed Pour Over Coffee and the Tall-sized Clover Brewed Coffee. Both of these drinks are priced at P150 each.
The difference between a pour-over and a clover-brewed is the method of brewing. The pour-over is a manual brewing process where one—in this case, the Starbucks barista—pours over hot water over the coffee beans, while Starbucks’ Clover brewing system uses a Vacuum-Press technology that precisely controls the water temperature and brew time.
