Default Most Expensive Starbucks purchase, ever? $47.30



Dude pays damn near fitty dolla for cawfeh

Quote:
Armed with a 52-ounce coffee mug, a Washington state man headed to his local Starbucks to make history.
Forty-eight shots of espresso, some protein powder, two bananas, a few caramel drizzle Frappuccino chips, some vanilla bean and a little soy later, Beau Chevassus ordered what may be the most expensive Starbucks drink ever on Feb. 9. He dubbed the $47.30 monstrosity the "Quadriginoctuple Frap."

YouTube
Starbucks employees in Enumclaw, Wash., were eager to prepare a potentially record-setting drink, Beau Chevassus said.

While the drink totaled nearly $50, he didn't actually pay for it. Starbucks gave it to him for free because it was his 27th birthday. He initially ordered 40 shots of espresso, but the baristas bumped him up to 48 as they got into the record-setting spirit. Chevassus posted his experience from the Starbucks in Enumclaw, Wash., just outside the company's home base in Seattle, on YouTube, where it has more than 140,000 views

Is that even legal? 48 shots has to be a health concern right? I had a 3 shot latte once and my heart was racing.

I never said it was. I mean, you clicked on the link and read it, so it must have meant something to you. If you were not entertained or enthralled, then kind sir, my deepest and most sincere apologies. Will you please forgive me? Kind sir, will you please search deep within the darkest corners of your most generous heart, and find the compassion to accept my supremely heavy condolences?

Well, did it win the pole like Danica Patrick? If it didn't, then it's not news worthy.

Of course it's legal. It should be legal in a free country. Well, once upon a time....

I have no idea what that reference is. As best I know, Danica Patrick is a moderately attractive NASCAR driver (this is based off of South Park and a random IMDB photo).

I have to admit, that episode of South Park was hilarious. Also, just FYI, I'm extremely fond of Danica Patrick's (DP for short) cunt.

sheer curiosity, i guess.


if you respond the same way thousands of times in a row, you gotta expect that eventually someone will be curious, no?
