A SBUX customer is warned by a barista about his 8-shot espresso drink. Have you ever received/given a warning?

A SBUX customer is warned by a barista about his 8-shot espresso drink. Have you ever received/given a warning?

Pittsburgh Starbucks customer Marshall Adams says he went through the drive-thru last month to get a caramel macchiato with eight shots of espresso. "The barista then told me she was required to warn customers who order drinks with more than six shots, and she wasn't kidding," Adams tells Post-Gazette reporter Mackenzie Carpenter. She called the executive director of the Specialty Coffee Association of America to find out what eight shots can do to you. That he says, "is nearly 1,000 milligrams of caffeine, and you're starting to get into a range where if you bolted that down you could end up feeling pretty sick." DO YOU WARN CUSTOMERS ABOUT THEIR ESPRESSO INTAKE? CUSTOMERS: HAVE YOU EVER GOT THAT WARNING? * Will Starbucks java now come with a jolt warning?
