Starbucks' Trenta (new cup size)

Updated August 21, 2022

Although i'm not a big fan of Starbucks (this was in the past! LOL), i was undauntedly struck by their release of a new size for their cups. From Short, Tall, Grande and Venti, the largest cofeeshop chain in the world unveiled their largest cupsize sofar.

Trenta - so it was called, the next in line after Venti. Literally, trenta is thiry in Italian; so as Venti is for twenty; Grande is for large (in Spanish, Portuguese and Italian).

As per Huffington Post, the Trenta will be available in all Starbucks chain  (US only) come May 3, 2011.

What's dazzling about this new addition of larger than life cup is the fact that it's actually larger than the capacity of the adult human stomach.

Yup! the Trenta holds 920mL while the average adult human stomach is 900mL.

Below's the list of cup sizes:




Remember, Trenta is 31 oz, that's 920mL

Updates as of August 22, 2022:

According to research, via Readersdigest.com and yummy.ph, the Starbucks Trenta cup size never made it to the Philippines and it's only available to order in the United States.

Interestingly, Trenta Cup Size is only applicable to cold drinks like iced-coffee or iced-tea, and you cannot use it for espresso-based beverages.

Fun fact: A trenta cold brew has 360 milligrams of caffeine, the equivalent of five shots of espresso.

In summary here's the Cup Title and its corresponding volume it holds in Ounces.

Demi (3 oz.)
Short (8 oz.)
Tall (12 oz.)
Grande (16 oz.)
Venti (20 oz. for hot drinks, 24 oz. for cold drinks)
Trenta (31 oz.) for cold drinks only
