Man Creates *NEW* Record-Breaking $47.50 $54.75 Coffee at Starbucks (Poll)

submitted on February 19, 2013 by HouTex in "Stores / Merchants", last updated on May 28, 2014 by HouTex
A Washington man set out to break the record for the most expensive coffee concoction at Starbucks.
His creation cost $47.50! Eeek That's a LOT of caffeine!

UPDATE: A Dallas man created one worth $54.75!
And no, he didn't have to pay for it, see comments for details.



The record-breaking coffee included 48 shots in a venti mocha frappuccino with soy mocha drizzle, matcha powder, protein powder, caramel brûlée topping, strawberries, two bananas, caramel drizzle frappuccino chips and vanilla bean. (Yum?)

At least now you can feel a little less guilty for making your barista brew up that grande non-fat soy white chocolate mocha sans whipped cream.

      If it didn't, I bet his stomach wasn't too happy with him by the time he finished.

    A guy in Dallas was determined to break this record and concocted a Sexagintuple Vanilla Bean Mocha Frappuccino with 60 shots of espresso in 128 ounces (yes, a gallon!). As a Gold member, he is entitled to a free drink after every 12 purchases. He was limited only by his imagination and what the barista will let him do, and got a $54.75 beverage for free!

    It took him 5 days to do it, but he drank it all. https://twitter.com/ACIFH
    I imagine he's not going to get sleepy for a l-o-o-o-o-ng time.....
