Barista Speaks Out About Rat-in-Coffee Incident

The incident of a girl finding a mouse in her coffee cup at a well-known coffee shop is known to practically everyone now as the incident went viral almost instantly. Health officials have already been to the coffee shop and deemed it sanitary, even saying that it is impossible for a rat or any kind of insect to be included in the drink. Still, that hasn’t stopped people from talking about the issue and coming up with jokes about it left and right.

I went to the coffee shop in question today myself and it was emptier than usual. My friends didn’t even want to go with me, joking about the mouse in our conversations. Even though the coffee shop is already “off the hook”, it hasn’t stopped people from becoming wary about the place. As such, we find it important to share this statement by a barista, Marco C., at the said coffee shop:

I’ve worked at the coffee shop for more than 3 years and this is my opinion Re: the issue,
(Tataglish-in ko nlang para madaling intindihin at ‘Cool basahin’at Pinoy naman ako, I believe kayo ding makakabasa nito)

Unang-una, Ate, WALA KAMING KUSINA, ginagawa namin yung drinks nyo sa harap ninyo ng may sinusunod na beverage quality standards. Kahit subukan kong maglasing para mas dibdibin yung hinanaing mo eh hindi ko maintindihan kung saan ka kumuha ng apog para ipagpilitan yang katangahang pakulo mo.

Ang malaking tanong: Paano, PAANO mapupunta yung bubwit na yun doon?? Mas malabo pa sa sabaw ng pusit na sa process ng pag gawa ng drink sya mapupunta — Oh sige, isipin nalang natin na na blend yun ate tulad ng kathang isip na pakulo mo, HELLO?! High-powered yung mga Blenders namin sa store, at kahit cellphone mo, oh kamay mo eh kayang durugin no’n kaya wag kang ano dyan! Ano, may pag Matrix na sa pag iwas sa blades ng blender?! Damn bubwit got them skills, eh?!?

Sabihin nating na blend yung bubwit, Sana nagmistulang Red Velvet Frappuccino with Kellogs ( additional inclusion yung buto-buto) yung drink mo sa dugo nun! Eh hindi naman sya durog, so ibig sabihin, tapos na syang gawin, bago sya napasok dun.

So na-pour na yung drink sa cup at dun palang sya pumasok, ANO HINDI LALANGOY PATAY AGAD?!? Nag Diving lesson yung bubwit kaya smooth ung pagdive nya sa drink? Walang talsik-tubig effect pra hindi mapansin ng finishing partner? Eh isali sa Olympics yan! Gets mo?!

So eto nga, umalis na pala kayo ng store bago mo nakita yung bubwit, pano mo kame mapapaniwalang Starbucks pa din ang may kasalanan dyan eh wala na kayo sa premises bago mo nakita, AT NAPAKALAHATI MO YUNG DRINK HA!! UHAW LANG?!!

Nagpacheck-up ka, may Dx ka ng Gastroenteritis (kase pinipilit mong sumuka kaya namaga sikmura mo) at may traces agad ng Leptospirosis (in fairness ang bilis! Pagbahing ba ang unang sintomas?!) sige we dare you, magpacheck-up ka ulit, but this time sasamahan ka ng isa sa mga partner. Baka mabuko ka teh!

At anong sinasabi mong hindi man lang nag aapologize ang manager? Ate isang malaking kalokohan yan, sa tinagal-tagal kong nagtrabaho, madami akong naging kaibigan, nakaduty, at kilalang managers / management, AND WE FOLLOW A SPECIFIC SERVICE RECOVERY STEPS pag dating sa mga ganyang issue!

Ate, kung gagawa ka ng storya, yung kapani-paniwala at yung madaling i-analyze. Hindi nagpabaril si Rizal sa Luneta para sa ganyang ugali ng Pilipino. Facepalm ka ate! Nakakapang init ka ng anit!

Hindi ka na bago sa amin ate, madami kayong ganyan, iba-iba lang style nyo para abusuhin yung kabaitan ng partners. Alam na namin pakay nyo, mga alien!

Kahit yung spokesperson ng Sanitation Mgt. ramdam ko na kahit sya hindi naniniwala sa mga pinagsasabi mo dahil ang dami nyang hinihinging proof sayo, uhhhh, SAD NO?!

Wag kang mag alala ate, may karamay ka, may humabol pang reklamo. Si kuya naman eh may langaw daw yung drink nya, baka daw mamatay sya! Mangiyak ngiyak pa si koya! PERSTAYM HO??

Nagpost ng picture kalahati na din yung drink at kakadapo lang nung langaw. SIR NAMAN! Nakaupo ka ba naman sa labas ng store, EH BAKA NASA PILIPINAS KA AT HINDI LINGID SA KAALAMAN MONG MAY LANGAW DITO SA BANSA NATIN!

Gawa kayo ng Group ni Ate Bubwit, mag recruit kayo, NGAYON na!

I STRONGLY SUPPORT THE COFFEE SHOP AGAINST THIS STUPID ISSUE. I was a partner before, and forever will be partner, by heart!

Any questions? :p
