    There aren’t too many coffee lovers who don’t look forward to a trip to their local Starbucks. Here are 12 amazing facts about the coffee chain.

    Whether you are a coffee fan or not, you can't escape Starbucks. Here are 10 facts about the popular coffee chain.

    Number 10 - According to Starbucks, with all the unlisted potential ingredients there are a total of 87,000 different drink combinations.

    Number 9 - In just one year, the chain goes through 2.3 billion paper cups.

    Number 8 - The massive Trenta size coffee cup weighs a hefty 30.9 ouches. Although caffeine lovers typically flock to larger sizes, the Trenta is a tough one to handle, given that it’s larger than the size of the average human stomach.

    Number 7 - The most diehard clients, who fall into the 20 percent rank, visit a Starbucks 16 times in the span of 30 days.

    Number 6 - Starbucks uses over 90 million gallons of milk per year in their coffees. Dump all that liquid elsewhere and it would be enough to fill about 150 in ground swimming pools – the Olympic sized versions.

    Number 5 - In 2011, it was revealed Starbuck has a secret menu. A few mentionable goodies include Cake Batter Frappuccino, Zebra Mocha and the Crunch Berry Frappuccino.

    Number 4 - Per the most recent statistics, Starbucks employs roughly 150,000 and 160,000 workers. That number is well over double the entire population of Greenland.

    Number 3 - The world's first Starbucks at sea opened up on the Royal Caribbean International ship, Allure of the Seas.

    Number 2 - Think Starbucks is a better choice for your waist than, let’s say, McDonalds. Well that all depends on what your order. The cinnamon chip scone for example packs a whopping 480 calories, which is about 40 more than a double cheeseburger from the fast food joint.

    Number 1 - Looking to get away from Starbucks? Take a visit to Adak, Alaska. The out of the way location is over 1,000 miles away from any Starbucks in America.
