Starbucks barista in shock over daily crazy espresso order — is it safe?

A viral TikTok has users concerned about a Starbucks patron’s daily order containing 20 shots of espresso.

A barista named Stephanie posted the video of her behind-the-counter monitor as she rang up the customer’s daily order.

“Everyday this lady comes here and gets 20 espresso shots with five pumps of classic syrup,” Stephanie says in the video.

The 20 shots themselves come to $20. Adding five pumps of syrup comes to $0.80. Served in a grande cup — which translates to 12 ounces in Starbucks lingo — and after tax, the customer’s daily drink is $22.57.

“Now that’s a lot of espresso,” Stephanie captioned the clip, which has now been viewed more than 635,700 times.

The US Food and Drug Administration says that a daily caffeine intake for healthy adults of 400 milligrams a day, which is about four or five cups of coffee, does not typically have adverse effects. Those who consume around 1,200 milligrams of caffeine can experience toxic effects, like seizures.

The agency noted that there is a “wide variation in both how sensitive people are” to caffeine’s effects and “how fast they metabolize it.”

Starbucks barista, Stephanie, posted the customer’s pricey daily order on TikTok.


According to Consumer Reports, one espresso shot at Starbucks contains 75 milligrams of caffeine, which means the customer in the TikTok consumes 1,500 milligrams — more than three times what the FDA recommends.

Some Starbucks superfans may know that the chain is not allowed to serve its Nitro Cold Brew in a venti — 16 ounce — size. While some think this is because the caffeine intake is too high, according to Fox News, a Starbucks spokesperson said it’s actually because the drink would lose its creamy, frothy texture and “cascade of bubbles” that makes the Nitro version different from its cold-brewed counterparts.

Meanwhile, the TikTok comments were jittery with users that were mind-boggled by what they saw.

“So curious to see her,” one commenter wrote about the customer.

“Is she ok?” another asked, concerned for her health.

“That’s like $600 a month just in coffee,” another calculated, maybe even lowballing it.

“Meanwhile I’m having a panic attack after a large coffee,” another admitted.

“I once got a venti drink & didn’t know it had SIX shots and I had a panic attack and cried/threw up for 8 hours …there’s no way she’s drinking it,” another wrote.

“I used to work at a coffee shop n we couldn’t sell an order like that to ppl cuz of danger to their health. We could if it was for tiramisu tho,” another recalled.

The Post has reached out to Starbucks to ask if the chain has regulations on how much caffeine it can serve a single customer.
