    NEW YORK (AP) - The bigger-is-better concept seems to be
    striking a chord among some Starbucks customers.

    Starbucks will begin a phased-in nationwide rollout Tuesday of
    its Trenta cup size that can be filled with just shy of a quart's
    worth of iced beverages such as coffee, tea and lemonade.

    Starbucks Corp. says Trenta, which means 30 in Italian, will be
    31 ounces and cost about 50 cents more than the 20-ounce Venti

    The new cups will be introduced in the South and Southwest
    beginning Tuesday, in California on Feb. 3 and expanding nationwide
    by May 3.

    The expansion comes after the cafe chain tested the 31-ounce cup
    in several markets last year, including Phoenix, Tampa, Fla., and
    Atlanta. … 12144.html

    I'd like to know just WHO is going to need this much coffee?
