  • How many Starbucks locations are there? This global cafe has over 13,000 locations in the US and nearly 28,000 total worldwide.
  • What’s the most expensive Starbucks drink? Technically, you can make any drink more expensive by adding extras. In 2014, one guy actually ordered a 101-espresso shot latte for a grand total of $83.75!

If we had it our way, we’d start every day with a delicious Starbucks beverage. They’re equal parts tasty and energizing, and the perfect way to get some pep in your step. But, unless you have Starbucks as a neighbor, there is some inconvenience in having their coffee every day. Not to mention, the average drink could really cost you with daily purchases.

Instead, why not make those delicious Starbucks drinks at home? With these gadgets and tips, you can become your own (talented) barista!
