And Now: 20 Ounces of Pure Espresso in One Drink
A Brooklyn, NY coffee shop called The Pulp & The Bean has devised a drink that makes Starbucks’ 32-ounce iced coffee offering seem tame by comparison: The Dieci, which consists of ten shots of espresso in one cup, for a total of twenty ounces.
This is probably not good for you.
“It’s never been done before,” Fisher said. “It just dawned on me that people really love espresso, so why not just give them a cup full of espresso?”
He drinks 10 cups a day of regular coffee yet couldn’t quite make it through a full cup of his concoction in one sitting.
“I drank a third of it. I’m still spinning,” he said.
The Pulp & The Bean is selling the Dieci for $8 a cup.
While ten shots of espresso contains less than the lethal dose of caffeine, if anyone actually drank a Dieci whole, they would probably not feel too well; in 2007, a young woman in the UK was hospitalized after drinking 14 shots of espresso over the course of four hours.
