Starbucks have a free coffee with your name on it

An email offer from Emerald Street in my inbox turned out to be a clever little PR stunt by Starbucks.
To launch their “new standard of latte” Starbucks are offering complimentary tall lattes this morning. All you have to do to get a free coffee is introduce yourself, and let your server know exactly how you like your coffee.

It's a small gesture, but it goes a long way to personify quite a generic, big name brand and hey, we all love a freebie so this is bound to get people chatting on social media.
