Starbucks Cup Sizes: everything you need to know before ordering your drink.
If you’re a coffee lover, you’re no stranger to Starbucks. The popular coffee chain has become a staple in many people’s daily lives. But with so many different drink options and sizes, it can be hard to know what to order.
STARBUCKS CUP SIZES
While nearly all other coffee shops and restaurants use established names for their beverage sizes, like “small, medium, and large,” drink sizes at Starbucks have unique names like “Short, Tall, Grande, and Venti.”
STARBUCKS SIZES YOU CAN ORDER
- Short (8 oz)
- Tall (12 oz)
- Grande (16 oz)
- Venti Hot (20 oz)
- Venti Cold (24 oz)
- Trena Cold (31 oz)
STARBUCKS SIZES: SHORT (8 oz)
The short size is the smallest size offered by Starbucks. It’s perfect for those who want a quick caffeine fix without committing to a large drink. If you’re looking for something small and sweet, the short size is also a great option. This size is available for hot beverages only, including brewed coffee and espresso.
STARBUCKS SIZES: TALL (12 oz)
The tall size is the original size offered by Starbucks. It’s an excellent option for those who want a moderate amount of caffeine. The tall size is also a good choice if you’re looking for something filling without too many calories. You can order both hot and cold drinks in a tall cup.
STARBUCKS SIZES: GRANDE (16 oz)
The grande size is the most popular size at Starbucks. It’s perfect for those who want a hearty dose of caffeine or a filling snack. The grande size is also a great choice if you’re looking for value; it’s usually the most cost-effective option on the menu.
STARBUCKS SIZES: VENTI HOT (20 oz)
In Italian, Venti means 20, and the Venti Hot is the largest cup size for hot drinks at Starbucks. It’s perfect for those who want a lot of caffeine or a meal replacement. The venti size is also a good choice if you’re sharing your drink with someone else. Just be warned that the venti size can be overwhelming if you’re not used to drinking large amounts of coffee!
STARBUCKS SIZES: VENTI COLD (24 oz)
A Venti Cold holds 24 ounces of cold drinks. Why? Because you need room for ice in your cold drinks, and nobody wants to pay the same price for more ice and less refreshment.
STARBUCKS SIZES: TRENTA (31 oz)
Trenta means 30 in Italian, but don’t tell Starbucks because they’re pouring 31 refreshing ounces into each cup. The Trenta drink size was rolled out in US stores in early 2010, and it’s the biggest size available. It holds 31 ounces and is available for iced drinks only. Be warned that a Trenta Cold Brew has 360 milligrams of caffeine, the equivalent of five shots of espresso.
ORDERING YOUR NEXT DRINK AT STARBUCKS
No matter what your caffeine needs are, there’s a Starbucks size that’s perfect for you. So next time you find yourself at your local Starbucks, don’t be afraid to try something new. And if all else fails, talk with your friendly barista about the Starbucks menu; they’ll know the details!
