Mankind has achieved a new record: A college student has ordered the most expensive Starbucks drink ever made, Yahoo! Shine reports. Logan Warren, 22, received a coupon for a free drink of any size with any add-ons he could dream up for his birthday -- and decided to milk it for all it was worth.



He chose the coffee chain's largest size, the 31-ounce Trenta, and asked the barristas to help him devise the most expensive drink possible. They chose to make him a Java Chip Frappucino ($4.75), plus 16 shots of espresso ($12), a shot of soy milk (.60), a drop of caramel flavoring (.50), a scoop of banana puree ($1), another scoop of strawberry puree (.60), a few vanilla beans (.50), a dash of Matcha powder (.75), some protein powder (.50) and a caramel and mocha drizzle (.60), according to
Yahoo! It all added up to a price tab of $23.60.

The big question ... how was the taste? "Tolerable," Warren told Yahoo!, "but not good. Imagine a coffee-based health food smoothie that will put you in the hospital if you drink it all." Would you spend $23.60 on a drink at Starbucks ... it it wasn't a freebie for your birthday?

    Mainly because he said it didn't taste that good... if it really really tasted good, and I had enough money to spare in my "just for fun" budget category, then maybe I would.

    OK but hey this guy must not have much happening in his life if he wasted all that time . If he had buddies he could have gotten the biggest with tons of espresso. Poured into a pitcher they could have been wild all day. Poor thing, I hope this story brings him someone to spend time with

    "...with any add-ons he could dream up for his birthday" I'd have dreamt up better add-ons to be honest.

    "And I believe you come free with this iced-mocha... You delicious coffee serving temptress!!"

    Logan Warren over did the mixture of the drink.
    Banana & Strawberry flavourings don't belong in a coffee drink.
    they belong in a smoothie,same for protein powder & Soy powder
    the Matrcha powder belonged in the smoothie with ice.

    What belonged in the coffee drink was the JavaChip Frapacinno, the 18 shots of Espresso,the Vanilla bean,the mocha/carmel drizzle,the carmel flavoring,the soy milk,
    & whipped cream.

    They were paying, have fun! His mistake, if there was one, is that he could have, easilly, made the most expensive Starbucks coffee, with ingredients that tasted well together.

    That is what I thought. They have caramel, vanilla, lots of flavors to inject into the coffee, not to mention, whip cream and sometimes csndy. He really blew it! And who drinks coffee for the protein?? Why do they have that option?? lol
