jazmin starbucks

Indeed, the inability of Starbucks baristas to spell their customers’ names correctly on cups has reached epidemic proportions. The problem is so out of control that the internet has taken notice with a number of sites devoted to collecting name fails.

Now Justin Hook has channeled those images into a new Starbucks name generator called “What’s My Starbucks Name?” that will give everyone an idea of what name your drink could be under next time you decide to grab a coffee. In my case, I’ll be listening for “Jazimin”.

The latest Frappuccino flavor will hit Starbucks on April 28th and will only be around for a limited time. The S’mores Frappuccino will feature marshmallow-infused whipped cream, milk chocolate sauce, and a blend of graham, coffee, milk and ice. It will be topped with more of that marshmallow whipped cream and some crumbled graham crackers.

Sounds delicious!

If you would like to try one, the best time to go would be between the hours of 3 and 5pm May 1st though May 10th during their Happy Hour promotion. All Frap flavors are half off during that time.

DeviantArtist Kahahuna has turned the familiar Starbucks logo on their coffee sleeves into wonderfully geeky works of art. There are several Doctors, a Dalek, Sherlock, and even Walter White to geek up your coffee.

Birthdays and cake go together like, well, birthdays and cake. It only made sense for Starbucks to create a birthday cake concoction to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the frappuccino. The Birthday Cake Frappuccino will be available for only five days from March 26th through March 30th.

It’s vanilla bean and hazelnut flavored with raspberry-infused whipped cream. Once it’s gone, it’s gone, so plan your afternoon coffee run accordingly.

Coffee lovers, rejoice! Starbucks is teaming up with delivery startup Postmates to let people order food and drinks for delivery. It’s all done through the Starbucks mobile app and will roll out first as a test in Seattle and NYC.

More specifically, the NYC test will happen in the Empire State Building. The Starbucks location in the building will be able to deliver to anyone in the offices above.

The test is set to kick off in the latter half of 2015, so here’s hoping that all goes well and a rollout to the rest of the country isn’t far off.

middle earth cup top

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.

While Australia is famous for its surf, kangaroos and dangerous “nopes” (I’m looking at you, Sydney funnel-web spider), the land down under is also getting some attention thanks to Starbucks. The coffee chain recently debuted a strawberry cheesecake frappuccinos there, and it’s only available for a limited time.

Cartoonist Josh Hara is turning his daily cup of Joe into a work of art by sketching pictures on the back of Starbucks coffee cups. They all come with a punchline, many coffee-based, and are really impressive. He’s even done some that involve more than one cup to create the scene, like a line of evolving cavemen. He told Mashable:

I think that if I was just sharing cartoons on a flat piece of paper, people wouldn’t be enjoying them as much as they have been. I think there is some extra interest in taking something we see every day, something that often gets thrown into the trash, and transforming it into a piece of artwork.

See more examples of his work after the break.
