You won't believe what you can do with a Starbucks lid

We have a deep affection for Starbucks, and all Starbucks related news.

Our minds were blow recently when we learnt the real reason Starbucks use the terms tall, grande and venti and then again even more recently when we learnt the real reason Starbucks employees actually spell our names wrong (clever).

Now for the news that sends Starbucks into a whole new category of amazing, there is a secret function of the cup that we’ve overlooked ALL this time.

The Metro recently did some manhandling to the Starbucks coffee cup and lid and discovered that there are ridges on the inner section of the plastic lids. What would they be for, you ask? Well actually, the cup fits into those centre rings, meaning the lid doubles as a coaster.

Wait, what?! Yes, it really does!

We've got to admit, we’re feeling kinda silly right now. The design is simple and functional and perfect.

Dear Starbucks, we didn’t know it was possible, but you’ve outdone yourself and we are ever-so-grateful for your tremendous foresight. BRB, going to grab a yummy delight from your establishment, and absolutely going to take advantage of the free coaster. It’s a game-changer.
