The former barista also revealed how different employees have different aprons depending on their skill level. 

'So when you go into Starbucks you might notice that the baristas have different coloured aprons on,' she explained. 

'Now these actually mean something, and not many people know it.

'If you have a green apron on, this just means you're a standard barista, maybe you just started working there, it's kind of the basic apron everyone gets.

The former barista also revealed how different employees have different aprons depending on their skill level. If you spot staff in blue aprons, it means you have a good shot at bagging a deal.

'However, if you have a black apron, that means something different.

'So a black apron is actually awarded to you when you have full coffee knowledge.

'You're kind of known as the coffee master - you make amazing coffees

There's also a red apron, but baristas don these during the holidays.
