Time was, Starbucks sold drinks in Short, Tall, and Grande. A few years back, they switched to Tall, Grande, and Venti, in a typical example of supersizing North-American food pathology. You might have thought "Short" went away. It hasn't; in most first-class Starbucks establishments (not including the ones staffed by Marriot-Host minimum-wage-slaves at airports for example) you can ask for a Short whatever and they'll do it for you.

And in fact, a Double Short Latte is, in terms of flavor intensity, about the best drink they have on offer. You heard it here first!
