Starbucks Is Getting Sued For The Most Ridiculous Reason
You're all welcome to join me in observing some Starbucks drama from afar, but someone better bring me a giant coffee.
Starbs is reportedly being sued for the alleged under-filling of its coffee cups.
Plaintiffs in the class action suit insist the Seattle-based coffee company was under-filling its tall, grande and venti cups by as much as 25 percent.
The suit reads,
Starbucks cheats purchasers by providing less fluid ounces in their Lattes than represented… Tall Lattes are not 12 fluid ounces, Grande Lattes are not 16 fluid ounces and Venti Lattes are not 20 fluid ounces.
The plaintiffs allege 2009 was the year the 'Bux decided to start skimping on milk -- which ranks among the company's most costly ingredients -- to the detriment of its customers.
A rep from Starbucks reportedly told New York Daily News, despite advertised cup sizes, filling a latte is not an exact science and the company made efforts to “inform customers of the likelihood of variations.”
If the suit turns out to have any validity, it's a bummer for the sleep-deprived among us who depend on every last drop of caffeine to stay motivated.
Still, there are those among us who can agree a little drama is precisely what's been missing from our latte lives since the Red Cup Debacle of 2015.
