Strawless Starbucks To Offer Cupless ‘Direct Pour’

(2018-07-09) — Just days after announcing it would drop plastic straws to save the oceans, Starbucks today introduced the option to have your hot beverage dispensed without a cup.

The new Earth-friendly ‘Direct Pour’ service is expected to increase sales by winning over people who have avoided Starbucks as a way to protect the planet from human refuse.

“It’s a natural evolution,” said a unnamed barista at the Pike Place Starbucks in Seattle. “Instead of generating more garbage, the customer simply tilts her head back, opens wide, and receives 12-to-36 ounces of piping hot java directly from the carafe.”

Any flavored additives would follow immediately, and the barista will even create a heart design with the cream at customer request.
