Starbucks is a popular destination for coffee lovers of all kinds – but they might not know everything there is to know about the chain’s unique beverages.

However, her video showing off “things you might not have known about Starbucks” has racked up over 2 million views — and commenters are surprised by what they’re seeing.

TikTok star Swazey clarified that a ‘Macchiato’ means the espresso shots go on top of the drink.

She then claimed that their blonde espresso is made with more caffeine, and that their nitro cold brew is infused with nitrogen (because of course it is).

That’s not all; she says the chain’s Caramel Macchiato is actually made with vanilla, and is called as such due to the caramel drizzle in the cup.

But perhaps the most shocking claim in her video is that Starbucks triple-filters its water with reverse osmosis — something that commenters can’t seem to get over.

“This is why Starbucks has the best water,” one viewer wrote.

“This is why I crave Starbucks water,” another said.
