Most people are not Andrew Chifari.
The coffee connoisseur decided to order up the most expensive drink ever –the Sexagintuple Vanilla Bean Mocha Frappuccino-at the java hub, which cost $54.75 to make.
Since Andrew is a member of Starbucks' loyalty program, he paid nothing, considering members get a free drink after every twelve that they buy. And there is no limit on the cost for that drink. "@Starbucks @starbucksgold Most expensive Starbucks drink ever. $54.75. it has 60 shots, 128oz glass.
Andrew brought a 128-ounce glass with him to get the drink, walked up to the counter and said, "So, this might sound a little weird, but I saw a video on YouTube where a guy orders the most expensive Starbucks drink. I want to beat the record," according to the Consumerist.
The cashier had actually seen the video and worked together with the rest of the team on duty in the store to help Andrew achieve his goal.
"It took a few minutes to figure out all the math, but in the end, it took about 55 shots to get us over the $50 line, and we just rounded it up to 60 to make it easy," he told the site. Ten minutes later, Andrew had the drink in hand, which he said was "delicious," drank about a third of it and took the rest home to consume later.
Five days later, Andrew had finished all of it...and it was a good thing he drank it in strides. Because his coffee concoction had 4.5 grams of caffeine in it, if he had drunk all of it in one sitting, it could've affected his blood pressure and heart, and maybe even killed him.
