Vat is dis venti?

"Crafty Russian seeks venti of cash from Starbucks," is p. 4 Chi Trib head.

What, pray tell, is a venti? A kind of coffee, I guess. At www.decafmocha.com I see "decaf venti no-whip mocha" and a creamed-up cuppa. But has Chi Trib so completely written off the straphanger trying to make sense of the world as to put it in a headline?

And do not look for "venti" in the story. Whom are these guys talking to, besides each other?
