Afraid to Try: Starbucks Trenta

Just took a screenshot of the latest Starbucks offering (taken from Huffington Post website)

I can barely finish a Grande and now they come up with this really huge size on top of the Venti! :-O Whoa! I think my stomach capacity is below average for coffee. I really wonder if this will hit the Manila scene well, since there are really coffee addicts who find the Venti size insufficient for their needs.

I only have to drink one cup of coffee and that’s enough to last me for a whole night. I only take it when I am totally sleep deprived the night before and I need to reset my body clock for proper nighttime sleeping. An average person needs around 7 hours. Below 6 hours is alarming, according to one newspaper article I read some days back (an article my mom forced me to read to convince me to get some sleep).

Also, aside from eye bags and sleepiness, sleep deprivation causes WEIGHT GAIN. So that just might be something that my friends will find useful when they are trying to shed off those pounds.

But even if I need to stay awake for 24 hours for some reason, I will not be able to try Starbucks Trenta. LOL. Though I am dying of curiosity to see somebody gulp that colossal beverage size for real…

    1. hi millionmonks, interesting name. haha. i was thinking of female monks just a while ago. yikes, sugar overload. hahaha… sige balitaan niyo ako kung makaubos na kayo pagdating ng Trenta dito sa Pinas…

  1. hi helen,

    have a great week,

  2. hindi na pwede sa akin to! kung dati nakaka two to three venti a day ako ngayun kahit isa hindi ko na magawa kase bawal na!


    hindi na din ako madalas tumambay sa starbucks at this year wala akong nakuhang planner ni isa!.

    Ako na ang dating dugo ay kape, pagpasok ko palang sa aking 2nd home maririnig ko na ang “Venti Caramel Frappe blended whip add whip for Jhona” or “Venti Caramel Macchiato for jhona” or ang “Venti White Chocolate Mocha for Jhona” isama ang mga something to eat “ensaymanda”, “coffee brownie”, “honey glazed doughnut” and the “chocolate cake”.

    ngayun, tubig, juice at icetea nalang.

    1. wahahahaha. trulili, bawal na fainting spell sa mall especially since i’m always in the office na, no more time to carry you to Infirmary. lalala. hahaha. buti nga may juice at iced tea pa… πŸ˜€

  3. ni minsan hindi pa ako naka punta sa starbucks na yan T_T … pero mahilig ako talaga sa kape.. mapa umaga, tanghali, hapon o gabi pa GO ako! tingin ko kaya ko kung trenta ^_^ okay pag nag karoon pa ng kwarenta (40) kaya ko pa din hahaha

  4. I used to order a Grande when I go to Starbucks; lately though, I stick to Tall because I find it hard to sleep when I drink too much coffee.

    Years ago, my thesis adviser and a friend decided to make instant coffee at the Theoretical Physics Group room, and they didn’t know how to make instant. So what they did was to take three heaping tablespoons of Nescafe (ala Milo) and mix it with one cup of hot water. Afterwards, my adviser said “Naalala ko na may puso pala ako.”

    I’m afraid that the same thing will happen to me if I choose the Trenta; I’m not sure I want to remember that I also have a heart. πŸ™‚

    1. hahaha! πŸ™‚ wow, no sugar mike??? nakakatakot naman i-try yung experiment ng adviser mo mike. parang extra joss na kape na yun ah… anyway, i stick to water and juice these days. part of my healthy living act…
