    BAD CHOICES MAKE FOR BAD CONSEQUENCES

    What exactly does the suit claim?
    To boil down the lengthy document to its essence, the lawsuit claims Starbucks baristas use a standardized recipe that results in underfilled drinks. The reason for that, according to the court document, is that the company has baristas use a fill-to line in the pitchers used to steam the milk. It also claims that many drinks (lattes specifically) have 1/4 inch of foam on top and a company-mandated 1/4 inch of free space in the cup, which holds exactly the amount of liquid claimed on the menu. So, a 16-oz cup with room at the top and a layer of foam would not actually contain 16-ounces of beverage, the suit contends. This benefits the company, according to the lawsuit, by saving it "countless millions

    Customers ordering tall, venti, or even a grande at Starbucks (NASDAQ: SBUX) may not be getting the drink they paid for, according to a lawsuit filed in a federal court in California.

    The class action lawsuit claims the coffee chain routinely underfills its lattes by 25%. According to the plaintiffs filing the court action, the company uses recipes that result in people getting less than the amount of beverage advertised on its menus.

    "Starbucks lattes are uniformly underfilled pursuant to a standardized recipe," says the lawsuit filed against the company this week. "Tall lattes are not 12 fluid ounces. Grande lattes are not 16 fluid ounces, and venti lattes are not 20 fluid ounces. Starbucks cheats purchasers by providing less fluid ounces in their lattes than represented."
