Monday is when I indulge my coffee habit. Having strived to cut down on my dependance on an early morning jolt of caffeine, I find that I now take even more pleasure when I do decide to have a cup. Not only does this mean I can splurge on pricier roasts, it’s also made me appreciate my coffee mug even more. High on my list of favorites is the Fred & Friends Wake Up Mug
This unique mug uses heat sensitive inks that take the initial droopy eyed look into a bright eyed one when you add your hot drink (tea drinkers rejoice!). This is a great giveaway for conference that may have an early start time or sporting the logo of your coffee shop. Caffeine and laughter are always a great way to start a Monday!
Last year, we did a post about the most expensive Starbucks drink. $23.60 drinks are sooooo 2012 though. In 2013, the most expensive Starbucks drink came out to a whopping $47.30.
The infamous drink is a Quadriginoctuple Frap, and the main contributor to the phenomenal cost is the 48 shots of espresso. 48 shots? I’ve had a triple shot latte before and thought I was going to have a heart attack. Adding to the cost was also soy milk, mocha drizzle, matcha powder, protein powder, caramel brulee topping, strawberries, two bananas, caramel drizzle, frappuccino chips, vanilla bean and whipped cream.
According to the man who ordered the drink, Beau Chevassus, he actually put a lot of thought and research into finding the perfect combination to get such an expensive drink. The baristas at his local Starbucks were excited to help out.
Yup, it’s $47.30, but he did save ten cents by bringing in his own travel mug.
This is a very exciting time of year for me. January brings a fresh slew of promotional products! It might sound crazy, but with all the newness, some think it is better than Christmas! When I caught a glimpse of the Vista, I knew I had to share it with our blog readers. And we are pretty serious about product selection at Pinnacle. Drinkware is very close to our hearts and we road test many of the items for quality before they make an appearance on our website.
If you’re like me, you like to treat yourself to a coffee shop drink every now and again (I’m partial to the soy latte myself). I’d go every morning if it weren’t for two things – 1. I don’t drive pass a coffee shop on my way to work and 2. It can get expensive. But if you thought a $4 coffee drink was expensive, that’s nothing compared to the most expensive drink you can get at Starbucks.
