    by Samantha Foster A Starbucks barista posted a video to TikTok on Sunday calling for “more dead cops” that showed him behind the counter preparing a special poisonous “Blue Lives Matter” drink recipe that called for more than a cup of bleach. The video, which has since been deleted from TikTok, showed a Starbucks cup sitting on the counter with the words “Blue Lives Matter” written on the side of it. The caption on the video read “All I want for Christmas is more dead cops.” (also the "song" which accompanied the video). The barista, who could not be...

    If anti-Muslim hate crimes do not exist, they must be invented. They’re simply too politically useful to do without. And so it is that the Minnesota chapter of the Hamas-linked Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) held a press conference Monday to demand the firing of a Starbucks barista who was so “Islamophobic” as to write “ISIS” on a Muslim woman’s coffee cup. CAIR also announced that it had filed a discrimination complaint with the Minnesota Department of Human Rights about the incident. If you think that the world is on fire and that CAIR should find more important things to...

    As a kid, Paul Thomas was a huge fan of professional wrestling. But he said he never imagined he would have to put that passion into practice at his coffee shop job. However, on Tuesday (June 26), Thomas channeled his inner WWE to take down an armed robbery suspect outside of Mojo Coffee House at the intersection of Race and Magazine Streets in the Lower Garden District. "It was a wacky Tuesday to say the least," Thomas said. Around 11:40 a.m., a 32-year-old man arrived at the coffee shop to buy two iPhones listed on Letgo by 25-year-old Rodolfo Bartholomew,...

    The robot revolution is here, at least for your morning caffeine fix. Cafe X Technologies is a new, $25,000 automated barista designed by the award-winning team behind Dr. Dre's Beats headphones and speakers: the Ammunition Group. The Jetsons-style coffeemaker can sling 120 cups of joe per hour at specs that satisfy finicky roasters (and project partners) like Intelligentsia, Ritual and Equator. The robo unit is essentially a fully operational café beneath a six-axis animatronic arm. Customers place orders on a kiosk touchscreen or via the Cafe X app and receive a text when the drink is ready, after around a...

    Kayla Hart dropped by the Starbucks in Charlotte, North Carolina the other day for a cup of coffee. She left with a bitter taste – and it had nothing to do with the overpriced java. Kayla happened to be wearing a Donald Trump t-shirt when she walked into the coffee shop on East Boulevard in the Dilworth neighborhood. She tells Fox 46 the cashier took one look at her t-shirt and laughed. She also noticed her order was labeled with a political message – mocking her support of the president. Instead of her name, the cashier wrote, “Build A Wall.”...

    "Millennial College Graduates: Young, Educated, Jobless," reads a Newsweek headline. "The Youth Recession: The New Normal for Young Workers," is another headline in The Atlantic magazine.  "Why Skills Are Not Enough to Land a Job," blares a recent story from The Nation, decrying a new normal  of "baristas with BAs." However, it's an urban myth that college grads are stuck in jobs working as Starbucks (SBUX) baristas, says new analysis from the New York Federal Reserve. "While there is some truth behind the popular image of the college-educated barista, this portrayal is really more myth than reality," say New York...

    EVERETT — A police investigation into an Everett bikini espresso stand is about politics, not prostitution, the owner of the stand said Thursday. Bill Wheeler said Everett police are targeting Grab-n-Go Espresso because the city is trying to push through an anti-bikini stand statute. Wheeler owns at least four bikini espresso stands in Snohomish County. Five baristas at Grab-n-Go were charged Wednesday with multiple counts of prostitution and violating the city's adult entertainment ordinance after a two-month undercover police investigation. Investigators said they saw the women exposing themselves, performing lewd acts with whipped cream and posing naked for pictures in...
