Woman working on laptop in Starbucks buys second cup of coffee

By  | 

An Islington woman who went to Starbucks to “get a bit of work done” has sent baristas into shock, by purchasing a second cup of coffee.

Rosie Warne, 28, is notorious for buying one flat white every day at 9am and nursing it in tiny, cold, disgusting sips while she stares pensively out of the window, occasionally typing something insightful, until she gets the hungry shakes, or needs to use the bathroom – whichever happens first.

However, on this particular day, Rosie decided to break the bank and go for a second beverage, a relatively adventurous caramel latte.

Barista, Michael Sanders, 19, said: “I couldn’t believe my ears. I was so thrown that I nearly got her name wrong on the cup, even though she’s here every bloody day. What’s next? A muffin? A panini? I don’t think I could handle it.”

Michael’s manager, Dawn Sutherland, 35, agreed: “This may be the first sign of the apocalypse.”
