You gotta watch out for those Starbucks lovers.

Laura Roberts, a 19-year-old customer at Starbucks in London, received a rather flirty (and cheesy) message on her coffee cup from a male barista.

The unidentified employee scratched out the hot coffee warning and left this message: "Careful you're extremely hot" with an arrow and smily face.

Calm down, lover boy!

The thing is Roberts is engaged and her mom has Facebook—both big problems. Her mom posted a photo of the cup on the Sh*t London Facebook page.

The post received tons of backlash and angry comments, but Roberts is choosing to not identify the barista.

"It's my local Starbucks and he's lovely," she told MailOnline. "He always does it."

"That day I sent a picture of the cup to my mum, because she lives quite far away and she put the picture on Facebook."

Moral of the story: Keep mom off Facebook.

Censorship of The Day: London Coffee Shop Forced to Replace Brilliant Yet "Offensive" Sign

A coffee shop in London has been forced to remove a sign displaying the shop's name from outside its building.

But the shop's response was rather cheeky.

The coffee shop was rebranded more than a year ago from the more boring "Bermondsey Street Coffee."

Then the owners received this letter this month from the lawyers of the owners of the building.

Seeing as they had no real choice in the matter, they replaced the sign.

Here's the new sign.

Effective? Yes.

Just as funny? Nah.

First our sticks, and now our coffee beverages. There is no stopping the #selfie.

YouTuber Megan Bowen lives in South Korea and vlogs regularly about the food, entertainment and culture of this interesting part of the world.

In her latest video, Megan takes viewers on a tour of a cafe that prints selfies on edible lattes. The cafe is called "CaFace," which is just almost too clever.

First the selfie...

And then it's time to destroy your face...

Never change, South Korea. Never change.

Have you ever kissed a loved one and wished that hot coffee would come pouring out of their mouth and into yours?

Probably not. But one Korean designer wants to simulate that weird fantasy.

As Mashable writes:

Created by designer Jang Woo-Seok, the custom lid gives the illusion that you're drinking piping-hot coffee poured through the lips of another person. And who doesn't want that?

Woo-Seok thought up the design after noticing that existing coffee lids lacked flair of any kind. In an email with Mashable, Woo-Seok explained that while coffee can be obtained every day, you aren't always guaranteed a kiss. This lid aims to solve that problem.

"So I created it for my sexual desire. Just kidding," Woo-Seok added, aware of the design's peculiar nature.

That's not a very funny joke.

Woo-Seok describes it further on his Behance site:

Different from the other coffee lids which have a usual hole to put a straw or to drink directly, Take 'Kiss' Out looks like a human face. Therefore, a coffee drinker experiences a visually funny and emotionally different coffee-drinking when drinking.

Take-out coffee is a symbol of city culture and fashion.

Shape of a lip is a distinctive style, thereby the combination will be fun.

Yeesh. If you say so.

Deniz Kosan probably believes in the importance of two things.

Coffee and Breaking Bad.

The Turkish fan set up a Kickstarter, got funded and has documented the whole affair over a very well produced Instagram account.

It's called Walter's Coffee and we want to go there immediately.

If you like coffee and beer, maybe this new Starbucks drink is worth a shot! Starbucks is testing what they've named the Dark Barrel Latte, a drink made with espresso and a chocolaty stout flavor and topped with whipped cream and a dark caramel drizzle. While there's no alcohol actually in the drink, many are insisting that it tastes a lot like beer.

Starbucks already sells beer and wine at some of their stores in the evening, and this fun new blend might be a good way to bridge the gap between the coffee lovers and the beer & wine enthusiasts. Many of the company's customers love trying new things and unique flavor pairings, so for now they're testing this drink to see if it has the potential to become more widely available.
