Cappuccinos off Starbucks' menu in some locations


If you live in New York, San Francisco, or Seattle, don't expect to see a cappuccino listed on the Starbucks menu. The hot espresso-with-foamed-milk drink is disappearing from the mega coffee chain's listed items, although if you order one a barista will still serve it. And why take one of the most basic (and my personal favorite) espresso drinks off the menu? Although Starbucks hasn't yet explained, some speculate it might be because cappuccinos are harder to make in larger sizes and can easily be confused with lattes. Thus Starbucks might be phasing them out and "replacing" them with the stronger "flat white."  For more details and conjecture, Business Insider has the skinny (as in latte, not cappuccino).
