Starbucks is already pretty pricey, but what’s the single most expensive concoction available at the coffee giant?Blogger Logan A. Warren wanted to find out. Armed with a rewards card, he went to a Starbucks and spent a half hour with a barista, they created the most expensive drink possible.

Here’s what they came up with:

  • Java Chip Frappuccino in a Trenta—a 31-ounce cup
  • 16 shots of espresso
  • 1 shot of soy milk
  • Caramel flavoring
  • Banana puree
  • Strawberry puree
  • Vanilla beans
  • Matcha powder
  • Protein powder
  • A drizzle of caramel and mocha

The final bill was $23.60.

How did it taste?

“Tolerable, but not good,” writes Warren on his blog. “Imagine a coffee-based health food smoothie that will put you in the hospital if you drink it all.”
