A Washington state man has set a new record for the most expensive cup of Starbucks coffee. It's called the "Quadriginoctuple Frap" and it cost $47.30.
Beau Chevassus said he wanted to set the new record on his birthday, but he had to get creative.
After weeks of research he stepped up to the counter and ordered a venti 40-shot mocha Frappuccino soy mocha drizzle matcha powder protein powder caramel brulee topping with strawberry, two bananas, caramel Frappuccino chips and vanilla bean. Whew!
While this appears to be the most expensive drink in Starbucks history, Beau didn't pay for it. The store gave it to him for free since it was his birthday.
Starbucks hasn't confirmed the record.
