While the current crop of local and high-end espresso bars and coffee shops are making a move away from giant coffee drinks, Starbucks is answering a call from customers for even bigger iced drinks.
According to a a release from a public relations representative, you’ll be able to grab a 31 oz. iced coffee or tea at some (undisclosed) Connecticut Starbucks stores. They’ve already rolled this out in other test markets like Pheonix.
I can’t endorse this for coffee, but I could go for a ginormous iced tea right now.
From a Starbucks release:
In response to customer requests for a larger size cup for their favorite shaken iced tea, iced tea lemonades and iced coffee, Starbucks is testing the Trenta size cup (31 oz.) in select New England stores. Unsweetened iced coffee, iced tea or iced tea lemonades in a Trenta cup are fewer than 90 calories, and sweetened, the beverages are fewer than 260 calories. Starbucks is testing this cup size to provide customers even more refreshing options to enjoy their favorite beverages this summer.
