  1. Yes. They will typically have one urn of decaf to maybe three urns of regular black brew going during a day, depending on the demand in their location. Each one is poured out and re-brewed every 30min for guaranteed freshness.
    And crafted espresso lattes or specialty drinks can be made decaf.
    Coffee-based frapuccinos can not, however, as the coffee-base is premade (not by the barista.)
    Hope this helps!

  2. Yes, and honestly it’s pretty good too.
    The only downside to Starbucks decaf coffee is it still has about 25mg per 16 ounce cup, so 3 of those equates to the caffeine of a small Redbull (defeating the purpose of decaf).
    Most grocery store bought decaf coffee has less than 10mg per 16oz though.

  3. The rush had ended ten minutes ago. My shift supervisor Katie thought it’d be a good idea to pre-close the store early for the night shift, but I wanted to enjoy the down time a little more.
    Come on, boss lady, let’s pour espressos and mark-out a cinnamon swirl coffee cake. We’ve earned it.
    That’s when she came in, Ms. Know-It-All.
    “One decaf latte, please.” She folded her arms. “I’m allergic to caffeine, so make sure it’s decaf.”
    “Ummm, Miss…”
    “Decaf still has caffeine.”
    “No it doesn’t!” She stomped her feet. “I’m a R.E.G.U.L.A.R., regular!”
    I rinsed out the shots, poured and steamed milk, before setting down the pitcher and pulling her DECAF shots.
    “Decaffeination is a process,” I said handing her the please don’t die latte. “Let me know if you feel sick and I’ll call an ambulance.”
    “I’ll be fine,” she insisted.
    Okay, okay, you know more than me lady. I turned to my supervisor and asked if it was cake time.
    “Keep an eye on her,” she started washing the syrup bottles, “she might be trying to sue the company for money.”
    Sue Howard Schultz? Howie?!?! That’s horrible! How could she? How dare her? Why are you cleaning that pump? Come on, Katie! Let’s eat some CAKE!!!
    Cough, cough.
    Oh no.
    It’s happening.
    What are we going to do? I don’t know CPR! I’m just a coffee master wannabe!!!!
    Ms. Know-it All put her feet up, reclined on the lazy boy, and asked, “Why didn’t you tell me decaf still has caffeine?”
    I nudged my shift supervisor as an ambulance took her away and said, “I guess you can say she really took the cake.”
    She rolled her eyes, after sighing, “Oh alright,” and handed me a slice of warmed up cinnamon swirl, “go ahead and take your ten.”
    And it was happily-ever after for everyone except for the eager beaver that couldn’t listen to her friendly neighborhood barista and maybe kicked the bucket, or something.
    Yes, you can get decaf.
    But please, PLEASE, only order if you’re not allergic.

  4. Yes, but you’ll get a decaf americano instead of decaf drip coffee, as it is not economical to brew a whole pot of decaf for just one order. A decaf americano is simply decaf espresso diluted with water. This actually makes a superior cup of coffee and you know it will be fresh. As far as I know they will only charge you as if you ordered a regular coffee and not an espresso drink since they are using this as a shortcut. This is a win-win for everybody.

  5. Pretty much any coffee based drink can be ordered as decaffeinated.
    There is always a decaf brewed coffee available. There is always decaf espresso available, so any espresso based drink, such as lattes, cappuccinos, mochas, etc., can be ordered as decaf.
    And, with a change in recipe ingredients for coffee based frappuccinos, you can order them as decaf.

  6. YES, frequently they give you Americano coffee when you order decaf. Americano has much less caffeine than regular coffee but more than regular decaf coffee.

  7. Yes you should be able to ask for a decaf pour over.
    That means they can make a single cup of decaf coffee.
    Although when ordering a pour over please be considerate because a pour over does take several minutes. Some people get upset at the barista for how long it takes. Some barista won’t mention that it takes long but most should.
    I always make sure I ask if they have time because it is a pour over and we have to manually make your coffee and it takes usually 3 to 4 minutes.

  8. Yes. Drip coffee, espresso, and iced coffee comes in decaf. Mind you, decaf doesn’t mean that there is no caffeine. It’s the equivalent of O’Douls beer/kombucha vs a normal beer.

  9. At my location we carry decaf options for everything except blonde espresso and cold brew. And then for an actual lack of caffeine options there are bottled juices, lemonade, cream based frappacinos, herbal teas, Apple juice, and flavored milk options.

  10. As a former Starbucks Barista, you can get pretty much anything as decaf.
    Just ask for decaf espresso shots in your latte, flat white, macchiato, etc. even the fraps can be made decaf! Just specify that you want your drink to be decaf, and the barista will let you know what their store has available and what they can make for you.

  11. Everything except cold brew and blonde coffee and espresso. Simply because they are close to the opposite with more caffeine than standard Starbucks coffee and espresso. It’s the teas that you can’t order any decaf but there are herbal ones with no caffeine. 🙂

  12. Yes you can order just about anything decaf at Starbucks, just certain times of day we won’t have drip and we can’t do decaf cold brew. But iced americanos are good too, and you can get them with all the fancy cold brew fixin’s!
