Big deal, it's not even as big as most other coffee places "Large" size.
 
2011-02-04 09:29:09 PM  
The real question: Where can I buy a bottle of coffee? A finely aged, well tempered coffee is rare.

/pretty sure I drink a 'trenta' every morning, cup by cup.

Wake me up when they offer the box of coffee in a cup. I'd rather drink coffee than eat.

Why are people worried about this. Myself and others that make their own do this all the time. It's called drinking the whole pot.

I'm impressed by the size of the cup, but could that guy hurry up the presentation a little? 2 minutes to show off a 15 second pour is really long.

It kind of feels like how I used to change the size of fonts and widen the margins in order to inflate the page counts of my papers in college.

Also, how long does it take to open a bottle of wine?

5 seconds, max. That guy spent at least 30 seconds working that cork.

A screwcap might have been a better choice for this presentation.

I can finally stop doing wine in a can. As soon as the Starbucks around here start selling this I can finally start having better days at work.
 
2011-02-04 09:47:41 PM  
So I can dump their crappy burnt tasting coffee and sneak wine into the movie theater?

750mL of wine works out to about 25.5 oz. Since the Trenta cup is 31oz size then it's obvious an entire bottle will fit. So will an entire bottle of rum or vodka or whiskey or....

Online video people really need to learn the concept of editing.

There's only 15 seconds of this video that are worth watching.

Pffft, you could put two and a half 750ml wine bottles in a standard 7-11 Double Big Gulp.

It's not even for coffee--it's for iced tea

/and that was a f*cking pointless video

If you need more than 20oz of coffee in one sitting, you have a problem.

Waaaait a second here. You mean to tell me that this 31oz COFFEE cup will hold OTHER liquids??!?? So it would hold a whole bottle of water?!??!!? Or a whole bottle of juice?!?!?! I'm sure glad that somebody put out a video to show me that 31oz > 750mL, dunno what I would have done otherwise. Hopefully somebody will make one telling me whether or not it will hold a 40. Never was sure how big those were.

You're going to need to fill that up with water because of dehydration caused by drinking all that coffee.

I just drink right from the spout.

Whoa! A 31 oz cup can hold over 25.4 oz of wine?
SHOCKER!

Also, this dude is kind of a tool for throwing some Clos du Val into a Starbucks cup. It ain't the greatest thing on earth, but it runs about 30 bucks.

If youre gonna pour some wine into a Starbucks cup for no real reason at least throw something cheap in there.

Let me know when a cup of Starbucks will fill the cylinders of my R100S.

I must be doing it wrong. I brew a pot of good coffee in the morning, pour it in a thermos, and I'm good to go for the day.

I'd pour in a bottle of two buck chuck chardonnay with some ice for a picnic.

It also holds a Trenta's worth of piss.
 
2011-02-04 10:05:50 PM  
Yes, very good. 750ml = 25.36 ounces.

Which in a 30 oz. cup leaves room for cream. Not that you'd want cream in your wine.

I gathered that it could hold a bottle of wine when he said that its volume was greater than 750ml, which is the norm for bottles of wine.

I did not however need to watch two minutes of him fumbling with cups and corks to get a visualization of it.

Shot one, cup, text label of volume. Five seconds.
Shot two, bottle of wine, text label of volume. Five seconds.
Shot three, pouring wine into cup, text label of amount of the cup being filled (~82%). Ten seconds.
Shot four, time lapse of drinking said wine through a straw to benny hill music. Twenty seconds.
Shot five, slurred speech "and there you have it" announcement. Five seconds.

Fourty five seconds of video, you get the point in the first fifteen or so and can exit out if you wish, otherwise you can be mildly entertained for a few more by the thought of drinking a bottle of wine through a starbucks straw.

You're supposed to pour a little into the cup, swirl it around, and taste it first. Noob.

AverageAmericanGuy: I'm impressed by the size of the cup, but could that guy hurry up the presentation a little? 2 minutes to show off a 15 second pour is really long.



Better yet, don't make a video. Point out that Trenta means 30 which means more ounces than a bottle of wine ta da! Article over in one sentence just add punctuation to flavor.

Tarkus: Starbucks serves wine?


I keep saying they need to sell whiskey shots to add to your coffee. It would make dealing with the morons at the grocery store a bit more tolerable.
