The famous coffee shop has been challenge of the latest issue involving the store after a woman claimed she found a dead mouse on her favorite Starbucks coffee.

The story goes viral after ABS CBN's primetime news TV Patrol reported the incident which happened January 26.

In the middle of controversy, a former Starbucks employee/barista posted his own opinion regarding the matter. Facebook user Marco Carlo Calibara took his facebook and here's what he has to say.

"I've worked with Starbucks for more than 3 years and this is my opinion Re: the issue,
(Tataglish-in ko nlang para madaling intindihin, at Pinoy naman ako, I believe kayo ding makakabasa nito)

Unang-una, Ate, WALA KAMING KUSINA, ginagawa namin yu ng 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 (Vitamix / BlendTec ) sa store, at kahit cellphone mo, oh kamay mo eh kayang durugin no'n kaya wag kang ano dyan!

Sabihin nating na blend yung bubwit, Sana nagmistulang Red Velvet Frappuccino 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 sumula kaya namaga sikmura mo) at may traces agad ng Leptospirosis (in fairness ang bilis!) sige, we dare you, magpacheck-up ka ulit, but this time, sasamahan ka ng isa sa mga partner / support partner ng Starbucks / Rustan Coffee. Baka mabuko ka teh!

At hindi mag 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 Starbucks 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, SAD NO?!

Wag kangmag 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 STARBUCKS AGAINST THIS STUPID ISSUE. I was a partner before, and forever will be partner, at heart! ‪#‎proudtobepartner‬ ‪#‎starbucksph‬ ‪#‎tobeapartner‬ "
