23 of the Best Misspelled Names at Starbucks

Advertisement

Let me start by saying I am firmly on Team Barista. As someone who spends way too much time and money at Starbucks, I’ve gotten to know quite a few baristas, and they’re all hardworking, meticulous people. It’s a tough job! They have to crank out dozens and dozens of coffee drinks a day, often accommodating a bunch of annoying special requests. (“I’d like my foam heated to precisely 111 degrees Fahrenheit, please!”) A coffee shop can be crowded, hot, and noisy. And worst of all, some customers are jerks.

So when you add all that up, it’s understandable that sometimes the barista’s gonna get a name wrong. It’s a fact of life. We’re not here for common misspellings. We’re here for the guy named Scott who had towalk around with a coffee cup that said “Scrote.”

And hey, maybe some of these weren’t even mistakes. Maybe Scott was acting like a scrote, and an overworked barista found a way to get revenge.
