Texas man takes 5 days to finish one of the most expensive Starbucks drinks
The coffee chain seriously does not want others to follow suit.
Texas resident Andrew Chifari, 27, took advantage of the points he collected under a Starbucks loyalty plan by ordering one of the most expensive drinks produced at the popular coffee chain.
Lisa Maria Garza of Reuters (via ABS-CBNnews.com) reports, "Chifari entered a Starbucks spot in Dallas on May 24 with a 128-ounce glass and asked baristas to create the most expensive frappuccino that would fit the huge container he was carrying."
Chifari ended up with a Starbucks frappuccino that contained 60 shots of espresso and was topped with whipped cream. The drink would have cost $54.75, but Chifari got it for free due to the loyalty points he had collected.
Caffeine Informer, a website dedicated to the coffee industry, has tagged Chifari’s drink as the current record holder of the most expensive Starbucks drink.
The report noted: "Caffeine Informer estimates the drink had 4,500 mg of caffeine, more than 10 times above what the U.S. Food and Drug Administration considers to be a maximum safe amount for a healthy person to drink on a daily basis."<>
Chifari revealed that he found the drink "delicious, very strong, very sweet." He said he drank one-third of the drink on the first day "and polished off the rest in small intervals."
<>Needless to say, he said he experienced erratic sleep and vivid dreams. <> <>For more on this story, log on to ABS-CBNnews.com.
