  1. Venti is the Italian word for the number 20. A Venti is our largest size for a hot a hot beverage, or 20 ounces. When it comes to our cold drinks, a Venti is 24 ounces, and you can get some cold drinks in a 30 ounce size called a Trenta, which is the Italian word for the number 30.

  2. A hot venti drink is 20 oz, and “venti” means “twenty” in Italian. For reference, an iced venti drink is 24 oz to make up for the ice being added to it. (Another answer to this said it was 26 oz; that’s not quite right, though that’s not a big difference, haha.)
    As a little backstory, Starbucks used to only have two sizes: short (8 oz) and tall (12 oz). They added their 16-oz size and named it “grande” because it was bigger than the others; later, they wanted to make a bigger one, so “venti” was introduced. That’s the same reason we have “trenta” (“thirty” in Italian, 30 oz).

  3. Starbucks only had one size in the beginning. I think it was the grande size… but people wanted other sizes so they added tall and venti. That’s why the sizes have weird names
