A couple of pumps of white mocha in a Starbucks drink is absolutely delicious.
But I was curious the other day, if I order a Venti, how many pumps of white mocha are in the venti? This is what I found…
How Many Pumps Of White Mocha In A Venti?
Starbucks serve their drinks in different sized cups, and these cup sizes are unique to the Starbucks hand crafted drinks menu. The Starbucks Venti is one of the larger sizes and holds 24 fluid ounces of liquid. The Venti is made with four pumps of white chocolate mocha sauce.
This article takes a look at the Starbucks syrup and sauce ‘pump’ system: what it means, how it works, and how you can use it to craft your own personalized Starbucks drink.
How Much Syrup Is In One Starbucks “Pump”?
The Starbucks “pump” refers to a “shot” of sauce or syrup, and one pump contains around one fluid ounce. The number of pumps required for each drink increases with the size of the drink.
A Starbucks Tall – three pumps of syrup
A Starbucks Grande – four pumps
A Starbucks Venti (hot) – five pumps
A Starbucks Venti (iced) – six pumps
A Starbucks Trenta – seven pumps
However, if you order a drink with more than one flavour, you’ll receive twice the amount of syrup. Regular Starbucks drinks fans recommend always trying new drinks combinations in the smallest sizes first.
And if you’re ordering coffee (or tea) drinks, your espresso is also loaded into the cup in pumps, although the number of pumps is less.
How Many Pumps Of White Mocha In A White Mocha?
Starbuck’s White Chocolate Mocha Frappuccino® Blended Beverage (in the tall size) is made with two pumps of white mocha chocolate sauce.
However, if you order one of the large sizes, you’ll get three pumps of sauce (grande) or even four pumps of sauce (venti).
Because Starbucks make is possible to personalize your drinks, you can request more (or less) of the white mocha chocolate sauce.
Other customizations available when ordering the White Mocha Frappuccino are to omit (or add) sweeteners, change the milk products, and increase or omit creams, sprinkles, drizzles, powders, and toppings.
How Do I Make A Drink Using The Starbucks App?
First of all, head to the Apple Store or Google Play, download the Starbucks app and set up your Starbuck rewards account.
You’ll have to enable the location services before tapping the “order” icon at the bottom of the screen. Then add your food and drinks to your “shopping” bag, select a pick up store, and pay for your purchases.
You’ll be able to select from all of the drink options, including the drink size. Customizations include the types of milk (non-fat, whole milk, heavy cream, almond, soy, oat, or coconut), the amount (pumps) of espresso, the blended add ins, the amount and flavours of syrups and sauces, the addition of whipped cream, and the amount and type of sweeteners.
Starbucks baristas advise app users to keep the alterations as simple and logical as possible. This is because some fans have concocted drinks that are nearly impossible to make and always time consuming to complete.
This puts pressure on staff who are already time poor and leaves them open to reprimand from impatient instore customers.
How Many Calories In A Pump Of White Mocha?
One pump of Starbucks white mocha chocolate sauce contains around 60 calories. It also contains 1.5 grams of fat, 11 carbs, and 1g of protein.
The Starbucks online menu includes a full nutrition and ingredients list for each menu item. Here, you’ll find a description of the drink and the amount of calories, fat, and sugar in each one.
Here’s where you’ll read that the White Chocolate Mocha Frappuccino® Blended Beverage in the tall size contains 280 calories, 40 grams of sugar, and 12 grams of fat.
If you’re concerned about consuming too much sugar, you’ll see on the site that you can reduce (or omit) sugar in your drink or replace it with another sweetener.
Starbucks use a unique “pump” system to dole out standardized amounts of flavour and caffeine for their range of artisan drinks. One “pump” contains one fluid ounce of sauce or syrup (or espresso) and each Starbucks drink size is made up with a specified number of “pumps” per serve.
Consumers can use this system to customize their own drinks by changing flavour combinations, increasing or reducing ingredients and altering the size of their drinks.
