Children's Letters to Starbucks Baristas


Dear Starbucks Barista:

My Mommy and Daddy fight all the time. Is it my fault?


Dear Timmy:

Sometimes parents have problems and it has nothing to do with you. Usually it's because they aren't drinking enough coffee. They should try our line of brewed coffees and iced coffees, or they could bring home a bag of our delicious medium-roast Timor Mount Ramelau. (My personal recommendation!)

Dear Starbucks Barista:

Does God exist and why does He allow so many bad things to happen in the world?


Dear Suzanne:

The existence of God and the nature of faith is something that people have been examining for many, many years. If God does exist, I'm sure He (or She) believes in Starbucks' dedication to building greener stores and our supplier diversity program as well as our wide selection of affordable tumbler mugs, espresso machines, and drip trays.

Dear Starbucks Barista:

I'm very sad. My life is terrible. Would anyone really miss me if I wasn't around?


Dear Logan:

Every person is special and has worth. Besides, if you weren't here, you would miss out on all the benefits of Starbucks' Loyalty Program, which is so easy to join! It includes early access to new products, plus free food and drink rewards (some restrictions apply).

Dear Starbucks Barista:

I can't ever read your handwriting. Did you go to school?


Dear Maureen:

Go to hell.
