Expect a longer wait the next time you visit a Starbucks store.

According to the Wall Street Journal, baristas are being told to stop making multiple drinks at the same time and focus on no more than two drinks at a time.

Another time consuming change involves steaming milk. Baristas must now steam milk for each drink rather than steaming an entire pitcher to be used for several beverages.

While several stores have reported longer lines, Starbucks insists the new procedures will eventually lead to fresher, hotter drinks and more satisfied customers.
