It's one of life's small pleasures, and no matter how hard we try, the versions from our own kettle never have quite the same je ne sais quoi as our baristas.
While it may be a while until we're back sipping on our favourite frothy lattes, we do have word on how to make the Starbucks' Mocha Frappuccino at home.
And this one genuinely looks good as the real thing...
Posted by London-based TikTok foodfluencer @caughtsnackin, the recipe for the icy summer coffee is *so* simple you'll be gutted you haven't known about it all lockdown.
All you'll need is ice cubes, espresso, milk, granulated sugar and chocolate syrup.
Start by adding a few blocks of ice to a blender. Add two shots of espresso, a cup of milk for creaminess, 1 tbsp of chocolate sauce and 2 tbsp of sugar and whisk it all up until perfectly mixed.
Pour into your cup and top with some squirt cream. Finally, drizzle some more chocolate sauce on top.
In the comments, someone suggested: "add more ice for authentic Starbucks frappe, as espresso shots almost melted the ice."
While another added: "Ok so I'm actually a barista and I recommend waiting until the end to add the ice because everything else melts it!"
A third praised the recipe, saying: "As a starbucks employee you did it amazing."
We can't wait to try this.
On Monday, Starbucks announced the phased reopening of 150 UK stores offering takeaway services.
The stores will reopen their doors on 14th May. In line with the government's coronavirus measures, there will be no eat-in option.
Most of the locations due to reopen are drive-thrus, alongside a small selection of cafes offering takeaway, with delivery services expected to be brought in.
Starbucks said that its reopened branches will offer a "near-complete" beverage menu, which is sure to please fans of the coffee giants.
Well at least that's something!
