Starbucks Cup Is Bigger Than Your Stomach

starbucksscreenshot.jpg

31-ounces will take the prize of the largest cup of coffee needed to outdo the size of your stomach. The newly released "Trenta" size at Starbucks is 11 ounces (325 mil) larger than the Venti, the coffee chain's largest cup size before this latest addition. This illustration from the National Post shows that the Trenta will max out the capacity of the average tum, pushing it 16 mil beyond its natural state.

The drink debuts in 14 U.S. cities on January 18 and will be available for overconsumption to the masses at all Starbucks locations by May 3. We're pretty sure we won't be having one, but perhaps instead of looking at this as a single serve cup for one person we should all gather straws and treat it as a scorpion bowl of coffee?

Thanks to SH for giving us the heads up on this rather large cup of coffee. Ouch.

The graphic was from National Post (a Canadian newspaper), hence why the measurements are metric. Yeah, we're archaic like that :-)

That's nothing, I drink iced tea out of a 100oz insulated mug!

There are lots of places with big drinks, like 7-11 and their big gulp.
I don't think it is a big deal to have something bigger than an average adult's stomach. I've been to Caribou and had 2 cups of coffee while there (which requires at least 1 trip to the bathroom).
And, can we get our measurements in English, not metric. Didn't metric die in the 80s (at least in the US)?

I've actually read this is only going to be for iced tea (and maybe iced coffee?) so it will be mostly ice in there. Still...kind of ridiculous, especially for someone like me who tends to order a short!
