The Most Expensive Starbucks Drink Is $47.30: What's the Most You Would Pay for a Coffee Drink?

Last year, a Starbucks enthusiast found out that the most expensive drink at the coffee shop was $23.60. Well, after some thorough research, one guy has found a way to double that price. Beau Chevassus created the "Quadriginoctuple Frap" for $47.30.

So what's the drink that will cost you almost $50? A venti-sized mocha Frappuccino with 40 espresso shots, soy milk, matcha powder, protein powder, mocha drizzle, caramel drizzle, caramel brulee topping, strawberry, two bananas, vanilla bean and Frappuccino chips. It sounds pretty darn excessive (and nasty) if you ask me. What's the most you would ever pay for a coffee drinks?

NEWSER.COM reports:
Remember that $23.60 priciest Starbucks drink ever? Amateur hour. A Washington state man claims he has set a new record after doing "a lot of research on it."

    But it needs to be something I can't sip down in 4 sips.
  • Racquelle 2013/03/06 16:34:52
    This would be an occasional treat of either a soy latte or cappicino or Clover pressed specialty roast coffee. That $47 drink sounds DISGUSTING

    And it won't be at Starbucks, because:
    1. I like Quality coffee and not burnt acidy sh-t.
    2. I don't like to get ripped off blind.
    3. I don't like to give my hand in, to mass brainwash deceit.
  • DDogbreath 2013/03/06 06:10:46
    $2 - $4 ONLY if it had booze in it.

    Decent sized though. Not something scabby. :/ Value for money baby.
  • Nonpartisan 2013/03/06 03:32:51
    $1 or less
    I generally make it at home for next to nothing. When I am shopping I get the tasting cup at Trader Joe's and that does not cost me anything, and I get to taste a snack along with it which costs me nothing. No I would not pay very much for any coffee drink. Coffee is best used as an enema.

    I can't imagine drinking that heart attack in the making concoction. That amount of caffeine could very easily put you in the hospital or kill you. I pray this very stupid man does not die but should he get his death wish by drinking this $50 heart landmine, I hope his family sues Starbucks for millions. They should not even offer too make any drink over 3 shots strong.
  • NarcolepticGoat 2013/03/05 01:53:20
    I don't drink much coffee anymore
  • pj 2013/03/05 01:28:48
    3.00$ at the most its just a treat though if that they have a lot repeat a lot of calories. and i dont really need the extra
  • mae 2013/03/05 01:16:57
    $4.50 tops.

    I boycott Starbucks and their coffee monopoly.

    Why do you hate Israel? Do you believe is freedom or not? Israel and Iraq are the only democracies in the Middle East so why do you want them destroyed? If the Palestine people would stop supporting their Terrorist Government and launching rockets into Israel,they would not need to harm any of the people in Palestine.
  • NUCKLED... Martyr4... 2013/03/05 05:09:54
    Your user name Martyr4Christ, you do know Jesus is a Jew.

    Not only Jesus was a Jew, but he had near to nothing to do with the Christian Religion!

    He could have never supported Christian Religion because he died about 5 decades before Christian Religion was even formed!!!

    This is complete Bulls**t,
    1. It is Hatred & Politically driven and not Coffee related, hence not answering to the point.
    2. Irrelevancy - as Starbucks Opened a few branches in Israel and failed badly, for Israelis
    don't like to be played for suckers or fools. because Starbucks coffee quality was the
    worst you could get in a coffee house in Israel, while the prices were the most expensive

    I grind my own beans too but sometimes I want a fancy coffee and I'm not at home so hey a few bucks is not a rip off and besides who wants to have store 5 different types of beans and 7 different kinds of bake goods just in case you get a craving for something different.

    Most of the time I just drink the kind I really like at home. The other stuff makes my stomach queasy :--)
  • marty 2013/03/03 05:33:49
    It'd have to be a large with triple espresso and some fancy flavorings and have to be a really special occasion...
    But IF I go buy a coffee, it's probably $1-$2. Usually just make coffee at home; a dark roast coffee with cream and splenda.

    Rounded up, it's about $5 for my white mocha if I get a venti, and I don't go often as it is, but that's my usual treat drink.

    However if it's just a stop to get a pick-me-up, it's a double shot, which is about $3.

    I still recommend drinking coffee from the home though. One coffee canister is about $12 and it makes over 100 measured cups of coffee. Get some cream and sugar if you like, maybe some Torrani syrup if you want something fancy in there, whipped cream for the top, and bada boom.
  • JGC 2013/03/02 22:14:33
    But I'd use a flask if I new I was out for the day and I had a choice! Its a no brainer!!
  • virginiakarsli 2013/03/02 20:22:46
    What the heck?!?!?!
  • thefatguy 2013/03/02 18:58:12
    I'd go as high as $6, but it had better be a damned good cup of coffee! No cup of coffee is worth more than that.
  • MIRANDDAAA :) 2013/03/02 06:16:43
    $1 or less
    I don't like coffee, so I wouldn't pay a penny for one.
  • bettyboop 2013/03/01 22:46:24
    With $47 I could buy groceries for me my husband and dog for half a week.

    Use of profanity aside I agree with you how could anyone drink this and not die of a stroke or heart attack.
  • lucky 2013/03/01 19:13:51
    5 to 6 but it better be a large and it better one excellent tasting drink.
  • peacefreak 2013/03/01 18:48:36
    I paid 10 bucks once. I totally deserved it, it was my first cup of java as a married woman. Haven't bought a cup since. :)

    With the emphasis on "or less" since I don't drink coffee! No drink is worth $47.30...at least not one without alcohol in it!!
  • James 2013/03/01 16:37:58
    but that would be for a fancy coffee drink I would buy for a girl. I like my coffee black so it shouldn't cost more than a buck or two.
