Starbucks Tall drive thru coffee cups are gone, but customers still have a choice on other sizes.

Starbucks Tall drive thru coffee cups removed. Starbucks drive thru locations are no longer selling the tall coffee cups. In fact, the Starbucks coffee store locator on their Web site also confirms the tall remove from drive thru locations.

Drive thru locations will now offer coffee drinkers the choice of the 16 and 20-ounce cups. According to some critics, this is a greedy menu change to boost profits. However, in addition to removing the tall option, iced coffees, ciders, donuts and other items have been removed. These items are still available, yet customers in the drive thru would have to be familiar with the store to know that they are offered.

"We'd heard from customers that our drive thru menus were cluttered and made it difficult to order. So we redesigned them focusing on making ordering easier by reducing the number of items and adding more product shots. Overall, we reduced the number of items on the menu by about two-thirds - typically going from 75 to 25 items. The items featured are our most popular items, including our most popular sizes - grande and venti. Ordering options are not limited to what's on the menu, and just as with the short size, drive thru customers may order any item or size of beverage we offer in the store," Starbucks spokesperson Stacey Krum said in a statement.

The new menus now have more of a photographic representation and fewer details and items. It is not like they are not allowing their customers to purchase the smaller size. Time will tell whether this is a smart move for the coffeehouse chain.
