As an international coffee retailer, Starbucks is bound to pick up a few naysayers to infringe upon its massive success. General complaints against the company usually include people saying their coffee is overpriced and that quality is just not up to par with others. One Chicago woman is taking her disdain all the way to the bank.
According to the Courthouse News, Stacey Pincus has filed a class action suit against the company for the heinous crime of having too much ice in their iced coffee. She claims that due to the amount of ice in said drinks, customers are only getting about half the coffee meaning that they’re mispresenting the actual fluid ounces of each drink.
"A Starbucks customer who orders a Venti cold drink receives only 14 fluid ounces of that drink — just over half the advertised amount, and just over half the amount for which they are paying," her lawsuit read. "In the iced coffee example, a Starbucks customer who orders and pays for a Venti iced coffee, expecting to receive 24 fluid ounces of iced coffee based on Starbucks' advertisement and marketing, will instead receive only about 14 fluid ounces of iced coffee."
So if you’ve purchased a cold beverage in the last decade, she’d like to represent you.
