Starbucks worker shares difference between hot and cold bar

At Starbucks, workers can be expected to work both hot and cold bars. The difference is simple: hot bar refers to beverages that are typically prepared hot, while cold bar workers prepare beverages that are consumed cold.

While these two stations may seem like two sides of the same coin, the reality is quite different. Starbucks workers consistently complained that working cold bars was more labor-intensive than their hot counterparts.

Now a TikToker went viral after making a video mocking that difference.

In a clip with over 403,000 views, Jayla (@bbjay_04) shows the contrast between the two stations. In the hot bar section, Jayla is quietly sipping a drink, while the cold bar section is hectic and contains numerous cuts and a much more stressful atmosphere.

@bbjay_04 really like Chloe ☺️? You had to order 5 different frappes so I couldn’t double them during this rush 😃 #fy #fypシ #starbucksbarista #baristalife ♬ all the way home – <3

In comments, users and alleged current and former Starbucks employees shared their feelings from their time at the cold bar.

“WAIT FOR THE COLD BREW TO FINISH POURING WHILE THE MAIN BAR GIVES U 5 DIFFERENT FRAPS AND A REFRESHER IS ANOTHER KIND OF FEAR LMAO,” wrote one user.

“Cold Bar is extreme sports,” added another. “It freaked me out the whole time.”

“Cold Bar is not for the faint fr fr,” echoed a third.

“Cold Bar is one of the reasons I don’t miss working at Starbucks,” shared another TikToker.

However, some said they really enjoyed working in the position.

“As stressful as a cold bar is, it’s my favorite thing to do,” said one commenter.

“Disagree, I love cold bars,” agreed a second.

“Cold Bar made the time go by faster,” another TikToker offered. “I used to fight for the refrigerated counter.”

Jayla has mixed feelings.

“It’s like a very toxic relationship that I can’t let go,” Jayla explained in a comment. “Plus, the pay is ridiculous, so it’s worth the pain.”

The Daily Dot contacted Jayla via Instagram direct message.
