When it comes to fulfilling all my coffee needs, Starbucks never disappoints. Before I moved to New York which is a couple of years back, I had never tried anything from the Starbucks menu until my new roommate gave me my first sip of some Starbucks coffee and I was hooked! However, as I became more and more acquainted with the Starbucks coffee I noticed that although some drinks tend to sound and look delicious, they were a bit pricey, well understandably so. It got me thinking about which drink would Starbucks crown as its most expensive drink and why. I did some research and found out that the Super Venti Flat White is Starbucks’ most expensive item. Read on to find out the details of this drink and what makes it so expensive.
What is the most expensive item on the Starbucks menu?
The most expensive item on the Starbucks menu is the Super Venti Flat White which is found on the Starbucks secret menu. The Starbucks Flat White drink is made by combining velvety steamed milk, and rich, smooth ristretto shots of brewed espresso to create a drink with the perfect amount of creaminess and flavor. But why has the Super Venti Flat White secured its spot as the most expensive Starbucks Drink? Well for starters, the drink is super-sized, a whopping 240 ounces to give you a clearer picture, which makes it a bit more expensive than the rest. The Super Venti Flat White also contains 170 espresso shots which amount to roughly 11,000 milligrams of caffeine. The drink is often frowned upon due to the high level of caffeine in it which is three times the amount considered safe for consumption. You can substitute the steamed whole milk with a non-dairy option such as coconut milk but keep in mind choosing an alternative will increase the cost.
