    20s: caramel macchiatto
    30s: latte or iced coffee with a few pumps of toffee nut

    I've definitely lost my taste for the super sweet drinks!

    Coffee, coffee, coffee......I drank it with creamer when younger, have been drinking it black for the past few years!

    Every now and then I get some kind of espresso drink, but I usually end up wishing I had stuck with coffee.

    20- Caramel Macchiatto or Mocha Frap...the sweeter the better for me then!

    Almost 30 - Hazelnut Latte, no sugar. Or hazelnut iced coffee, no sugar. I try not to drink away my calories these days.

    @MoonMoon: Yep! Just ask for coconut milk instead of soy or regular milk.

    I'm not to 40 yet so I'm going to add my teenager drink LOL

    Teens: Caramel Machiatto with EXTRA Caramel. Like a lot. Always Venti

    20s: stopped drinking coffee so switched to Passion Teas... and Peppermint Hot Chocolates ruled the roost-- I switched to soy when I became lactose intolerant at 27

    30's so far: Soy Chai Tea Latte with extra pump of vanilla OR a white soy hot chocolate with pumpkin spice if they have it or just extra vanilla if they don't

    Late teens/20s: I started out drinking heavily sweetened lattes and mochas since I had just started drinking coffee and wasn't into the actual coffee flavor! Then when I was 21 I got a job at Sbux and became a die-hard coffee drinker and it was usually a triple tall americano or a doubl/triple tall latte.

    30s: Tall 1 pump vanilla non-fat latte. Decaf if I'm pregnant

    20 - grande chai tea latte
    30 - venti green iced tea
    Mid 30s - skinny vanilla latte (I started drinking coffee in my early 30s)
    Not 40 yet but I hardly go to SB anymore. For the past year, we've made a point to not go to SB and make our coffee at home instead - hopefully it's saving us some money!

    20s~ vanilla iced latte. Or sometimes iced caramel macchiato depending on level of wanting sweetness

    Now mid 30s and all I get is iced coffee. I've tried the new flat white and surprisingly like it too.

    I don't go to SB regularly, but I get so many gift cards from there that I never have to pay when I do go (I'm a teacher). I'm usually order a cappuccino or a small (sorry tall) latte. I dislike all the super sweet syrups.

    In my 20s I drank triple-shot mochas... Then I gave up caffeine AND sugar in my coffee. Now in my 30s, if I go there, I get a decaf latte.

    When in HS it was the thing in my area to get a Lumpkin spice latte PSL because the abbreviation for my town is PSL...lol

    I didn't start drinking Starbucks until my late 20s, and pretty rarely until my early 30s. Started with steamed apple juice, then an apple chai (steamed apple juice with chai syrup), now mostly chai lattes with the occasional apple chai in the fall for a change. Oh, and passion tea lemonade in the summer.
