Starbucks, a snacks bar found everywhere in US mainly in most of the shopping complexes and petrol stations, "Food Exits" in highways, carries small medium and large coffee, which are referred to as tall, grande and venti and it depends on the type of coffee, but a regular coffee costs $1.40 for a tall 12 oz 355ml, $1.60 for a grande 16 oz 480ml and $1.70 for venti 20 oz. + taxes like 14 cents.
