Caffeine-Free at Starbucks
Even though Starbucks is a coffee shop, there are multiple caffeine-free drink options available.
Caffeine is a stimulant that can keep you awake and alert, which is great when you need to stay up, but not so great if you’re trying to go to sleep.
If you’re sensitive to caffeine, or just want to know which drinks to order that doesn’t caffeine, you’ve come to the right place! Here is a handy list of caffeine-free drinks available at Starbucks.
Tips for Ordering Caffeine-Free Drinks
- Decaf has caffeine
Starbucks has both decaf espresso and decaf coffee, but know that decaf still has some trace amounts of caffeine. There’s about 25 mg in a grande size decaf coffee and 12 mg for every shot of decaf espresso. You can customize your drink so if you want a half-caf drink or maybe want a decaf coffee but with a splash of regular coffee, you can do that easily.
- Refreshers contain caffeine
Starbucks Refreshers like the Pink Drink are made with green coffee extract, which has about 35 mg of caffeine in each tall drink.
- Chocolate contains caffeine
Chocolate has a little bit of caffeine, but not as much as you’d get from a full cup of coffee. If you’ve eaten chocolate bars or chocolate candy and can tolerate the caffeine in those treats, you’ll likely be just fine ordering a hot chocolate.
- White chocolate contains no caffeine
White chocolate doesn’t have caffeine like regular chocolate does.
- Steamers have no coffee or caffeine
Steamers are like a latte without any espresso, and the flavor options available for lattes are also available for steamers.
- Herbal teas contain no caffeine
All other types of tea (black tea, green tea) has caffeine but herbal teas don’t. Starbucks has two herbal teas: Mint Majesty and Peach Tranquility.
- Almost all créme Frappuccinos have no caffeine
The créme line of frappuccinos, like the Strawberries Créme Frappuccino, use a créme frappuccino base that doesn’t have any coffee. But watch out for the chai and matcha Frappuccinos which have caffeine.
