Am I saving a ton of cash by using Starbucks' power?

How much money am I costing, say, Starbucks if I charge my laptop there every day?
Hypothetically speaking, let's pretend that 300 times per year, I plug in at the local Starbucks and charge the battery on my MacBook from 0% to 100%. How much, broadly speaking, will this cost the Starbucks in electricity? In other words, how much would it save me if I never, ever charge the battery at home?
I recognize that there's probably some variables here, like the actual cost of electricity, but if someone could ballpark it for me, I'd be much obliged.
