A woman was left feeling embarrassed after she found a flirty message from a Starbucks barista written on her cup – and has vowed to ‘never go back’ to the shop
We’ve all seen romance films where the couple meets at a coffee shop, and some of us may even have thought about having our own chance encounter that leads to us finding our soulmate over a latte.
But one woman on TikTok was less than impressed when she discovered a barista at Starbucks was flirting with her after he left a “smooth” message on her coffee cup without her noticing.
In a video, the woman showed off the cup, which had “secret message” written on it alongside an arrow that traveled all the way down to the bottom of the cup.

At the bottom, text was circled which would usually tell customers: “Careful, the beverage you’re about to enjoy is extremely hot.”
But instead, the Starbucks employee had crossed out several of the words so that the message read: “Careful, you’re extremely hot.”
The woman, who posts on TikTok under the username @chance_twins alongside her twin sister, was left red-faced by the encounter and indicated she wouldn’t be going back to the coffee shop because she couldn’t face seeing the barista again.
She captioned the video: “What just happened at Starbucks?
“Never going back there.”
Commenters on the video were divided over the gesture, as while some thought it was “cute”, others wondered how many other people the barista had written the same message to.
One person said: “That was smooth, not going to lie.”
While another added: “It’s cute, girls say guys never do anything. He just put his heart out to you.”
But a third found the message suspicious, as they wrote: “I’m wondering how many other girls he did that to.”
The Mirror has contacted Starbucks for comment.
Meanwhile, one Starbucks employee recently shared the embarrassing truth behind the drive-thru that had us regretting every decision we ever made while sitting in our cars.
The woman, known only as Grace, revealed that Starbucks employees can actually see you when you place your drive-thru order, as they have a camera set up that watches the first station.
Grace wrote alongside her video on TikTok: “I hope you all realize we can see you in the drive-thru when you make faces at us.”
