Starbucks Introduces Its Biggest Drink Size Yet

Starbucks has announced that it is introducing a new size of coffee called the Trenta cup. As "Venti" means "twenty", "Trenta" means "thirty"; but observant caffeine-junkies will notice that the new container is actually a 31-ouncer.  Conspiracy-theorists might wish this was Spinal Tap reference. After all, these new cups are Venti plus "eleven".

It's set to debut February 1st in its California stores and averages about 50-cents more than the Venti. However, it will only be used for iced coffee, iced tea and iced tea lemonade drinks.

The web, of course, is having a field day with the news. A few websites are showing off an infographic that compares the different sizes, pointing out the serving amount of this new cup (916 ml) is bigger than the average capacity of a normal human stomach (900 ml).

Yeah, but a lot of things we eat and drink exceeds our stomachs. You had to know a Super-Sized Starbucks cup wasn't far behind.

I think it will pay out in the long run cuz to its only going to be for tea and iced coffies cuz I love the iced green tea and the new size will make ot last longer but wait there is always some the penny pinch pinching yeah its $.50 cents more it wont stop starbucks barristas not to feel it almost all the way up with ice so the cup wont take as much liquid in it soo it probably not be a good idea soo lets see where this gose and how well it dose in the market


We certainly hope that this incredible gift hits the city before it gets warm again. On these cold winter mornings, 20 ounces just ain’t gonna cut it.

Hopefully this time next year we'll be able to get our hands on the gallon(a). Drink up everybody!

Obviously, regular customers will be saying "trenti" before long. Starbucks should have called it "trentasomething." More accurate and easier to distinguish from venti over a noisy intercom. Now hear this.
