Is it just me or does everyone else have the coffee dripping from the lid problem? Everytime I drink my coffee, it somehow leaks out from the lid and starts dripping onto my shirt! :x
At first I thought it was a defected cup, then I thought it was the cups/lids from that particular coffee shop, then I thought it was the way I was holding it but after countless leakings and countless stained shirts I've come to the conclusion that coffee cup lids are poorly designed.

I would agree the lids are not the best and I have as well be dripped on. I keep a coffee cup in my car and I transfer coffee from the paper cup to my cup which don't drip and it keeps the coffee hotter longer which is usually not a problem because I drink the coffee before it even gets close to getting cold :)

make sure that the hole on the lid is not lined up with the seam of the cup...it will cause dripping...I have never done this but I have heard of baristas doing this to customers on purpose :shock:

What to the customers they don't like - lining the hole up with the cup seam? LOL If that is the case than in every industry their are people that will do something stupid to customers they don't like. Thing is I deal with some of those customers not happily but with a smile and can't wait till the next customer that I will enjoy much more...stressful at times with certain realllllllllly picky customers but they are out there and I just bear it with a smile and move on the best I can :)
