Would you Like a Little Coffee with that Wine?

MIAMI - JANUARY 28:  Customers relax and drink their beverages at a Starbucks Coffee shop on January 28, 2009 in Miami, Florida. Starbucks will lay off about 700 non-store workers by mid-February, including about 350 at its Seattle headquarters, as part of a reduction of 6,000 positions worldwide over the next eight months. The company also will close about 300 underperforming stores, according to a memo from CEO Howard Schultz.

Breaking news in the world of beverages. It appears that Starbucks is introducing a new coffee size to its already confusing line of coffee — the Trenta.

“I don’t get it, Pat. Why can’t they have small, medium and large? I’m not smart enough to drink here.”

The Trenta is bigger than the human stomach (though they haven’t measured ours). How big is that you ask? Well, it appears that the Trenta is big enough to hold an entire bottle of wine. So when you see Moms and Dads in the morning carpool line slurping on a Trenta, don’t be so sure to think they’re caffeine addicted. (FYI: If you spot a plate of cheese next to them, you know something really fishy is going on.)

What do you think of the Trenta? And what product would you store in it?

    why would anyone want a Trenta? I do enjoy coffee. I am addicted to it… I know.. one of my many weaknesses…. sigh…
    but purchasing something that is bigger than my stomach is just wrong… lol
    If I were to drink that size, I would have to spend the day close to a bathroom. My bladder is the size of a pea…

    I like my coffee HOT–which it will not be if I pour that much at one time. I suppose you could make party hats out of cups that large, or use them as wastebaskets or lampshades or something…
