Have you ever wondered how much it would cost to create the most expensive Starbucks drink possible?

So, you love Starbucks. However, you wish their food and drinks weren’t so f****n’ expensive. But hey, if you think your Caffe Misto or Vanilla Frap is too pricey, wait until you see Logan Warren’s concoction.
“Armed with my Starbucks Rewards card, I decided to take the opportunity to find out just how much money I could pour into a Trenta — Starbucks’ whopping 31 ounce cup! After about a half-hour with a laughing barista, we created the most expensive drink possible: one Java Chip Frappuccino in a Trenta cup, 16 shots of espresso, a shot of soy milk, caramel flavoring, banana puree, strawberry puree, vanilla beans, Matcha powder, protein powder, and a drizzle of caramel and mocha.”
What’s the damage?
The personalized drink, which according to Logan was “tolerable, but not good,” apparently has over 1,400mg of caffeine — that’s as much as 14 regular cups of coffee!
Kudos to Starbucks for their amazing customer service. The drink was paid for using a Starbucks Rewards card, which said “We’ll make any drink you like” and they honored that, despite how ‘crazy’ his order was.
