$47.30: The World's Most Expensive Starbucks Drink

February 13, 2013


This is a video from reader Beau in his record-breaking attempt to customize the most expensive Starbucks coffee drink (previously it was this $26.30 one set by another reader. Also, why is this a Geekologie trend? I didn't sign up for this) . The 52-ounce (which, for the record, is not an official Starbucks sanctioned size) Quadriginoctuple Frap contains 48 shots and a bunch of other crap and probably tastes like ass. Always wanted to experience a coffee enema but are too squeamish to jam a hose up your keister? This is as close as it gets.

Hit the jump for a video of record-breaking in action.

Thanks Beau, but I'm already on the way to Starbucks with a 128-oz mug and my roommate's credit card.

    I think we should restrict this to official sizes only

    I think the main mistake here is they went to Starbucks.

    JFC it was bought in ENUMCLAW. They don't deserve to live there, let alone have coffee.

  • AmstraD

    What the hell ??? never been in a starfucks but what's with all these ingredients ? salt topping ? protein powder ? Where's the coffee ?

  • Last year the most expensive drink was $23.60 and now it is $47.30. That is inflation.

  • It's not inflation. The price is due to what was put into the drinks. The same syrups/toppings/# of added shots isn't the same between the 2.

  • GW! You featured ma video!

    P.s. Being a former barista, I told the manager it wasn't my goal for them to lose money (since it was my birthday drink) or deplete their inventory, but she ended up being more excited than I was about trying for the most expensively-priced Starbucks drink (and that was before I gave them a dozen fresh doughnuts).

    They were all pretty neat people. Had a ton of fun.

    Doughnuts make everything worth while.

    ...Anyone else wonder why they didn't just go for 52 shots instead of 48? It would've added another $3 to the cost if the aim is 'most expensive drink'... it's not like 4 more shots is going to make it taste any more or less like ass, and I doubt the 4 shots would be what stops your heart if you're already doing 48...

    This is the dumbest shit I've ever seen.

    This drink deserves another title of being the "World's Deadliest Starbucks Drink".

  • Taylor Love

    But why?

  • For the very same reason why we climb mountains.

  • To get to the moon?

  • GrueHunter

    No, silly. You sacrifice virgins to the moon, not visit it.

  • it has almost been exactly 1 year since the last record

  • Kevin

    Yup, if you're a gold card member, you get a coupon in the mail for "any free drink" for your birthday.

  • Hold the fuck up... Did he get that free because it was his birthday?

  • Free birthday drink. Actual cost: $0. Doesn't win.
