As the story goes, a barista found this cup during his shift. As in, some customer drew a wonderfully detailed map of Middle Earth on a Starbucks cup and just left it there. Seems a little suspect.
The Redditor behind the pics insists that he’s just a barista, and not part of the Starbucks marketing team—but that hardly matters. Starbucks should have officially worked this out for all the cups as part of a Hobbit-themed promotion.
