  1. The condiment bar isn’t there with half and half so you can add a whole cup’s worth to your drink.
    You get up to four ounces for free. After that you’re supposed to be charged. You’re not supposed to be adding more than four ounces from the condiment bar, either, but we can’t guarantee that you don’t.
    Most people don’t abuse this courtesy. If they did, stores would stop putting half and half out after a while.

  2. This is just a guess….
    Half and half instead of what? Instead of a splash of milk in a cup of coffee is trivial.
    Instead if a cup of steamed milk is quite significant.
    I’m guessing it’s related to the amount of 1/2&1/2 you are using

  3. A cup of half and half or more in your one drink is significantly more expensive than the quarter cup or less people add at a milk station. They are a business after all. They know this and need to compensate themselves appropriately. If they could get away with it, they would charge you at the milk station too.

  4. So you are allotted 4 ounces of milk for free in a drink that is not primarily made up of milk. For instance you can order an Iced Coffee and ask them to add half and half to it and they will not charge you for it. However if you order a latte and ask for it to be made with half and half you will have to pay for it.
