New Starbucks Size Larger Than Average Capacity of Human Stomach

It is as the prophecy foretold.

Actually that's under 2 pints. If I can drink 2 pints of beer I think I can handle two pints of Iced lemonade.

Iced coffee is serious f*cking business. I still prefer the Ice Caps from Tim hortons though... And the donuts... and the sandwiches... and the hot/cold items... Okay I like Tim Hortons a lot more then Starbucks, but Tim Hortons doesn't have a 1L cup

Ewwwwww Tim Hortons coffee bean-based drinks :P
I'll admit, their muffins are awesome thouth. And the soup. And the sandwiches. But donuts are donuts, no matter what way you cut it.

What? Who dares say America isn't helping to negate the stereotype of unnecessary greed?
Show yourselves!

How much of Starbuck's net revenue goes to banana republics?
How much federal state aid goes to banana republics?
How much charity from the U.S. goes to banana republics?

Greed? Moar like generosity, amirite?

Because obviously it's better for Americans to pay maybe 1/200 of the cost of a cup of coffee to people in Banana republics, versus just skipping the gargantuan coffee serving and just giving the full 200/200 cost of coffee to them instead /sarcasm

All evidence suggests that Starbucks is an undercover robot attempt to destroy all organic life.

I can easily down a 4L bottle of Orange Juice and I can down a 3L bottle of milk easily too so almost a litre of coffee seems doable. It also seems like Starbucks is making the most of caffine addiction with the new size.

Next step in the enlargement craze after the Trenta: the "StarBucket" a regular sized bucket containing 2.5 gallons/10 litres of any beverage you want, comes with a straw, a napkin and a portable toilet.

Anyone want to share one?

I at everything about Starbucks... this just adds to the list.

With all due respect, I'm not buying any of their drinks til I can get a large without needing a english to Starbucks dictionary.

I'm pretty sure if I started a chain up and called the sizes 'twondy' 'klumpf' and 'voog' I'd get as much ridicule as they deserve, although I think in Britain, it's gone the same way as McDonalds in that 'have a nice day' doesn't happen, you can ask for a large chips and they'll get the damn 'fries' for you, etc. Go into a UK Starbucks and ask for a large black coffee and I doubt they'll try to re-educate you.

More Fun To Compute:
What a pointless infographic. How many pints of beer do people drink before they need to visit the little boys or girls room? Normally significantly more in volume than this "impossible to drink" cup of coffee. Although I would be bouncing off the walls if I drank all that at once.

I heard that for beer or cider or whatever, the usual rule is "one pint, one toilet trip". Which makes sense, really. That's on average, of course, and I tend to go once per pint-and-a-half to two pints, but still...

Anyway, I agree with this quote, in general. It is pointless. However, what I find pointless isn't the info, but rather, the fact that Starbucks feels it necessary to release such a large size. And then limit the amount of stuff that can be served in said size. Plus, how much is it going to cost, and how many people are really going to bother buying this when there are other, more sane, sizes available?

Then again, I've never really cared for Starbucks' size system anyway. Call me a pretentious hipster if you want (though as I do like some mainstream stuff too, I prefer the term 'indie'), but I've always thought that Starbucks calling their sizes in the Italian style is just pointless and rather elitist of them. Much more pretentious than any 'hipster'. I mean, 'verdi'? Come on, what does that mean in English? I bet most people don't know unless it's pointed out. Which is why I prefer smaller indie-owned coffee shops anyway, and when I'm in any big chain place I always just say "can I get a large latte, please" and let the barista figure out what I mean...

It says it's bigger than the average human stomach. Not the average American stomach.

With all the other crap we consume, coffee is the least of out problems.

Coffee downing contests.... COMMENCE!

That is an absolutely preposterous amount of coffee.

That 'venti' bullshit is for real? That's just... sigh... Who's the comic who said "Just get me a fucking large!"

I doubt it'll come overseas. There simply isn't the demand for something like that out of the US.

Tim Hortons coffee actually tastes like coffee to me, and its not overpriced as Starbucks. Also, F&@K YEAH DONUTS!

Oh it is On. Think your giant sized cups can defeat my stomach Starbucks, well you ain't seen nothing yet.

I'll be pissing through the night, but it'll prove my point.

One liter of coffee.

I wonder who would need that much to stay awake.

Students!

^^This. By midterms, I'm measuring my daily coffee intake in number of pots, not number of cups.

31 oz and I MIGHT get through class without feeling drowsy.

mmmmmmm 31 ounces of carmel frappe

its not that big of a drink when considering the average person should drink a gallon of water a day

daaaang!
i don't even drink the smallest cup at tim hortons which i believe is eight oz. so that is about 236 ml.
JESUS A LITRE OF COFFEE!
i drink almost that amount of water a day.
my stomach does not need to expand.

I call their language Starbuckian!
thought I should share!

My stomach must be seriously fucked up.
I quite frequently consume 1L (sometimes 1.25L) bottles of iced coffee in one sitting.

Now I'm worried.

The highest I go is grande. I'll admit I run through a tall five seconds after I leave the store, but venti is just too much to handle. By the time I'm done it's all cold and icky.

Who is honestly going to buy this much coffee? After the homework is done, sleep would be a nice prospect.

A couple years ago a guy sued starbucks for 4 million dollars because he was unfortunate enough to have glass in his coffee.

When they asked him why he was suing for 4 million (opposed to another amount) he responded, "Hey, I just wanted my money back."

I heard that for beer or cider or whatever, the usual rule is "one pint, one toilet trip".

Yeah but you tend to get about three in before you need to go, provided you drink fast. ultimately it ends to something like that, the liquid's gotta go somewhere

I have a new method to combating Freddy. Better then any pill out there.

Um, I've chugged two liters of liquid... fairly often.

These are nothing.

I want that cup and I want it filled with espresso.

though I've drunk that much of Kx (like redbull but cheaper and nastier) in one sitting.
blame tesco for selling them in litre bottles.

The average stomach is less than a single liter ? o.O
But it already happened that I drank one or two 1.5L water bottles, so that's strange.

TestECull:
No funny french names [...]

All those "venti, grande, etc." names are not french ...

Oh yeah, definitely, wouldn't make sense otherwise. But after those first few pints, when you start to go to the toilet, then you roughly need to go again after every pint or so. As you say, it has to go somewhere :P.

+1, we must be mutants from space o.O

Just 31 ounces? I've eaten steaks bigger than that...<.<

When will they release a 40 oz. so I can cruise with my Olde English and tell everyone it's coffee. Hell yeah, I'd be the hippest of the hipsters then.

Show yourselves!

?

All joking aside, I think the idea here isn't for someone to down a beverage like that straight in one sitting. If your on a long trip, or going to be chained to a desk for a long period of time without being able to go anywhere except maybe to the bathroom, then a rather huge beverage is nice to have. It's sort of like making a pot of coffee for yourself and keeping on (or near) your desk, of filling up a Thermos.

So we have the liter.

Now I want a gallon cup that if you finish in store, you get a t-shirt and the coffee is free.
