Caffeine is a stimulant that the body produces naturally. It is found in coffee and tea and many other foods and beverages, as well as medications.

An iced coffee (a Venti Iced Coffee) is made with ice, coffee, and sometimes milk. One cup of brewed coffee is about 20 to 30 mg of caffeine.
A Venti Iced Coffee is made with 2 cups of brewed coffee (or from a concentrate, if you choose the type with extra caffeine).
That’s what you get when you order a Venti Iced Coffee. It’s packed with caffeine, and it can be a great way to get a jump start on your day.

A Venti Iced Coffees have about the same caffeine as four shots of espresso, and has around 235 mg of caffeine.
It only takes 1/2 of a Venti Iced Coffee to give you an excellent caffeine buzz. Of course, that’s plenty of caffeine for an average-sized adult. But if you’re on the small side, there are other options.
Starbucks offers a Tall Iced Coffee which has about half the caffeine of a Venti Iced Coffee. It’s about 12 ounces and is also made with ice and brewed coffee.
The smaller Iced Coffee is just right if you’re not an avid coffee drinker or you want to limit your caffeine intake. It’s only about 1/4 cup of coffee.
