Supersized Coffee

Coffee cup sizes just keep getting bigger.

Last year Starbucks introduced its new 916 mL Trenta size for iced drinks. That’s just shy of 1 entire Litre, as in, a carton of milk. And we all know their hot beverages will come in this enormous size eventually.

Now Tim Hortons has added a new 710 mL jumbo size and called it an Extra Large. Just to confuse everyone, they’ve changed all of their size names to avoid having an ‘extra extra large.’ What a shame – it would have been fun to hear people order an ‘extra extra double double.’

Yep. Today’s coffee maker is tomorrows mug-warmer.

Am I the only one who thinks coffee might someday end up a controlled substance, and that we all might be the better for it?
