Man Whose Order Made Starbucks Employee Want To Quit Speaks Out About His Drink

Sipping on his drizzled, whipped up, iced, crunched Venti Caramel Crunch Frappe (with five bananas), 'Edward' is a happy man with no regrets.

Since his Starbucks order went viral, 'Edward' - who hasn't given his surname - has said he doesn't see a problem with the drinks he orders after speaking out for the first time.

The 31-year-old customer told the New York Post: "I don't see a reason why I wouldn't order a drink like this again. I just ordered another drink just like it yesterday."

According to the publication, Edward used 150 of his 1,500 Starbucks customer reward points to buy the elaborate $14 (£9.90) beverage.

Josie Morales, 22, was the member of Starbucks staff that was tasked with the mammoth job of making the drink which included an additional 13 sugary ingredients. Watch them peggies, Edward.

After making the order, Josie took a picture of it and posted it to Twitter, not knowing that it would go viral... and, he says, lead to his contract being terminated.

Edward, a project manager, went on to add: "Once I was made aware that my order had gone viral. I found Josie on Instagram and reached out to make sure he didn't get into any trouble for posting it.

"I wanted to let him know that he didn't do anything wrong. It's definitely an order people could find funny."

Morales told The Post: "Making drinks like these can be really stressful for baristas. Especially when managers want us to have each drink prepared for the customer in seconds."

He went on to add: "Last year, a customer ordered 26 drinks at once. And at least half of them came with all these crazy customizations and demands. It took me over 10 minutes to make them all just right."

Edward - who only treats himself to a fancy coffee once in a while said: "It's fine to keep ordering these speciality drinks from Starbucks.

"As long as you take care of the people who make the drinks by giving them a decent tip, then everyone should be happy."

Speaking to Fox News, a spokesperson from Starbucks said: "Customizing beverages at Starbucks and our baristas' expertise in helping customers find and craft the right beverage has and always will be the heart of the Starbucks experience.

"There are many ways for customers to modify their favorite beverage at Starbucks and most customizations are reasonable requests from customers."
