Look, I get that other coffee places have their own clever names for drinks. The smaller Mom-N-Pop drive-throughs and locally owned independent coffee shops do this to set themselves apart from, well, us. It’s good. It’s called competition. And that’s good for everyone.
Someone used to ordering one of these drinks at another store can usually just order how they normally do and we can figure it out. If not, well, we ask for a little clarification. Pretty simple, right? Maybe.
You: “I’ll have large iced revolver mocha.”
Me (not just a little confused by the terminology): “Uhh… revolver mocha? I’m sorry, I don’t know what you mean.”
You (looking at me as if a bouquet of roses has just sprouted out of my head): “Six. Shots. Hence the name.”
Me (smiling as if I think you’re oh so clever): “Ah, yes. That kind of makes sense now. Never heard that before.”
You shake your head and sigh as if you’re dealing with a complete dipshit.
Dude, I know how you feel.
I did a little research (a very little) and discovered at least one place that has a 6 shot espresso drink called a Revolver.
My coworkers never heard of it before, either. We all agreed that it made sense and was kind of cool. And that your attitude ruined the joy of discovering a new term.
