If you’re like me and many other people all over the world you want the most caffeine you can get in the morning. We’ve got the data and now you can see what’s the most efficient way to wake yourself up in the morning at Starbucks.

Starbucks offers a wide variety of custom drinks many of which contain a helpful dose caffeine, but as you may have guessed some are a better deal than others.

Did you know that the Short and Tall sizes for many of the espresso based drinks contain the same amount of caffeine, this is true for the Grande and Venti sizes as well.

We found you could request to get espresso shots long shots, there may be more water, it may taste more bitter, but you will get a little more caffeine out of each pour, without having to pay extra.
