Kiwis rubbish Starbucks


As any seasoned traveller knows, if there's one things Americans don't do well it's coffee. Which is why the global expansion of Starbucks has always had me mystified.

Trust the Kiwis to fight back against the evil skinny mocha latte with a twist empire.

Draft NZ wrapped rubbish bins across the street from a new Starbucks to look like a takeaway cup complete with stirring stick.

The cup carried the message Coffee Taste Like Crap? along with subtle branding directing passers by to nearby Cafe Brazil.

Thanks to screenhead for the pic.
