HONG KONG – Ahh, coffee. It’s an acquired taste.
Some people think it tastes like…you know what.
And that’s what many customers of a Hong Kong Starbucks are saying, after discovering the coffee shop was using toilet water to brew their high-priced crap.
The Starbucks, located in the famous Bank of China Tower, has been using the bathroom water since its opening in 2011.
A newspaper called the ‘Apple Daily’ published photos of a sign that reads ‘Starbucks Only’ just inches away from a urinal in a dingy washroom–located in the parking garage!
A Starbucks spokeswoman explained that there is no direct water source to this particular store, so workers would collect it from the bathroom five times a day.
But they swear it was filtered and safe to drink.
Something doesn’t smell right here?!
After realizing they were in deep doo-doo, the store apologized, and said they are only using distilled water now. Yuck!
Nothing like a little toilet water coffee to go with your poo-poo platter!
