Finally! A Cup of Coffee Bigger than the Human Stomach

Via National Post:

To satisfy the unquenchable gullets of America’s brand-name coffee drinkers, Starbucks will introduce a 916ml Trenta cup. That’s more than the average capacity of the human stomach, and enough caffeine to stand in for a defibrillator.

Of course, it’s not much—if any—different from a Big Gulp or any movie theater’s large beverage container. But for some reason coffee’s just that much more insidious. You’ll be able to sample one for yourself when the Trenta rolls out nationwide by May 3rd. . .


Bad science. The article doesn't mention that the stomach is processing the coffee as it enters. Flow rate is what we need to know. - Greg Pollowitz
