NEWS: Fair Trade Coffee Failure
Tried the challenge in the Starbucks opposite Embankment tube in London.
Me: Hi can I get a tall FairTrade coffee please to go.
Barista: Sorry none brewing but can I interest you in either of the blends we have brewing: Christmas or Brazil?
Me: No thanks could you please press me a FairTrade coffee?
Barista: Sorry we cannot do that.
Me: Really...it is corporate policy to do it, are you sure you can't?
Barista: Let me check with the manager
Comes back 60 seconds later
Barista: Sorry there is no FairTrade coffee in the store to brew for you. Can I get you something else?
Me: No thanks that's ok. Thanks.
Left the store. Not had a London failure before. Disappointed.
