Venti Dark Roast

The most caffeinated drink at Starbucks is the Venti Dark Roast, with an extra shot of espresso.

With 425mg of caffeine, this beverage packs quite a punch. However, if you’re not looking for such a jolt of energy, the Starbucks website also offers some other suggestions on their blog.

Nitro Cold Brew

The nitro cold brew is one of the most caffeinated drinks at Starbucks as well. Coming in first and second place, respectively, nitro cold brew and iced coffee are the most caffeinated drinks at Starbucks. Both of them contain 400mg of caffeine, which is equivalent to four cups (or 48oz) of traditional drip coffee.

The nitro cold brew takes approximately 3 minutes to make, as it’s made by pouring whole beans into the cold brew nitro tap. The nitro cold brew itself is smooth and creamy, which Starbucks prepares by using nitrogen instead of carbon dioxide to pressurize the beverage.

Nitro Cold Brews Vanilla and Mocha

If you’re looking for something caffeinated but also refreshing, Starbucks offers two nitro cold brews – vanilla and mocha. Both nitro cold brews are produced via a similar process as the regular nitro cold brew; only they have underlying flavors that enhance the nitro cold brew’s flavors. The vanilla nitro contains no caffeine, while the mocha nitro has 100mg of caffeine in it.

Research:

– Caffe Mocha with classic syrup and mocha drizzle has around 380 mg of caffeine, about as much as a can of Red Bull

Iced Coffee or Iced Tea

If you’re looking for something that packs even less caffeine than nitro cold brew, try Starbucks cold brew coffee or an iced tea if you have a sweet tooth. Both of these drinks are under 100mg of caffeine, though the iced tea contains some additional sugar.

Research:

– Nitro cold brew (400mg caffeine) – 400 mg of caffeine is equal to four cups (48 oz) of regular drip coffee

– Two nitro cold brews, vanilla sweet cream cold, and mocha (100mg caffeine), no caffeine on vanilla one

– Nitro coffee is smooth and creamy because it uses nitrogen instead of carbon dioxide to pressurize the beverage

– Three minutes to make nitro cold brew because it’s made by pouring whole beans into the nitro tap

– Nitro cold brew and iced coffee (400mg caffeine), nitro cold brew and iced tea (less than 100mg caffeine) contain less than that, but nitro cold brew contains other added sugar.

Grande Soy Chai Tea Latte

Another most caffeinated drink is the Grande Soy Chai Tea Latte and iced chai tea latte with an extra pump of chai tea syrup and soy milk. It has 260 mg of caffeine, which is about as much as a can or bottle of Pepsi.

Caffe Americano

With only 150 mg of caffeine, the Caffe Americano may not be as jolting as other beverages on this list. However, it is a standard coffee beverage that you can add shots to if you’d like. If you’re feeling adventurous, try ordering a grande Americano with four pumps of classic syrup and soy milk in a venti cup. You’ll have a caffeinated beverage that’s iced and flavored.

One more caffeinated drink is the large Caffe Mocha with classic syrup and mocha drizzle (380 mg caffeine), which is about as much as a can of Red Bull.

Venti Caffè Americano

Another caffeinated drink is the Venti Caffè Americano with four espresso shots. We’re including it on the list because you can order a Grande Americano with six shots of espresso to get this amount of caffeine in an iced beverage.

Grande Caramel Macchiato

One more on the list is the Grande Caramel Macchiato with an extra shot – it comes in at 250mg for this one.

Is too Much Caffeine Bad for Our Health?

Caffeine can cause problems if you have certain health conditions. So always check with your doctor before you add it to your diet. For example, you should not take nitro cold brew if you have a heart condition or trouble sleeping. Moreover, nitro cold brew contains nitrates found in processed meats. Therefore, they can increase your risk of certain diseases.
