Starbucks (my favorite world-wide coffee chain – I'm still waiting for some VIA samples to arrive at my desk) today introduced the 128 oz. Plenta and the 2 oz. Micra.
I have to admit, a 128 oz. cup of Starbucks coffee sounds pretty good to me. I might have to go to the hospital after I drank it, but I would enjoy every drop.
Here's some info from Starbucks.com today about the Plenta and Micra:
Plenta™ (128 fl oz) and Micra™ (2 fl oz) cups arrive in Starbucks stores this Fall. Derived from Italian word for plentiful or small, the Plenta™ delivers coffee lovers record amounts of the world’s finest coffee beverages while the Micra™ delivers a quick and satisfying morsel of goodness.
Recognizing the potential impact the Plenta™ presents for municipal waste collection, Starbucks is also suggesting several subsequent uses for the Plenta™ cup post coffee enjoyment. Suggested usage options include popcorn receptacle, rain hat, perennial planter, lampshade or yoga block. The Micra also serves as a convenient milk dish for kittens, soft boiled egg cup or paper clip holder.
The jokes on me Starbucks, because I really do want a Plenta. But I still love you as much as ever.
