There are two types of Starbucks customers: Those who drink Starbucks to feed their whipped cream, caramel-loving sweet tooth (*raises hand*). And those who drink Starbucks to point their caffeine fix. Which one are you?  

A coffee addict? Well, lucky for you, a former Starbucks employee has spilled the beans (coffee beans haha) on what drink will effectively give you the best caffeine buzz for your buck.

So, what's the magic drink that'll keep you alert all day and give you enough energy to conquer the world, without breaking the bank?

Turns out, it's none other than the Starbucks Doubleshot on Ice.

In a recent Reddit Q&A, a former Starbucks manager broke down the facts on why this drink is perfect for the caffeine-lover. 

When a Redditer asked, "What's the most inexpensive, yet potent drink?" the former Starbs employee answered, "Starbucks Doubleshot (the ones made in the store) are pretty cheap and potent. But iced coffees actually have a lot of caffeine and are cheap."

Starbucks Doubleshots have a whopping 225 milligrams of caffeine in them, compared to an average cup of coffee that only has 95 milligrams of caffeine. Wow! That's quite the difference.  

Let's say you can't get to a Starbucks, but you see one of these at a grocery store...

Just know, these drinks only have about 150 milligrams of caffeine in them! Which means, they won't give you quite the same kick as a freshly-made Doubleshot at Starbucks. 

So, next time you've pulled an all-nighter on a big project, you know what to grab on your morning Starbucks run...Doubleshoot on Ice!
