Sizes Explained

GGC points to a site that finally explains the sizes of beverages served at Starbucks. Not exactly work-safe, though.

Unfortunately, they don't explain what size you'll get when you order my metrosexual, Portuguese-Canadian friend's favorite: a "doppio macchiato". You'd expect a "double" to have some heft to it, but that sucker was smaller than small, or is that taller than tall? Anyway, why you'd pay $3.89 for a thimbleful of coffee is beyond me — I prefer to use economy of scale to my advantage and pay $4.68 for twice as much.
