Dribble-Proof Your Starbucks Cup

Has this ever happened to you? You grab a coffee from Starbucks on your way to a client meeting, take sip, and coffee dribbles down the front of your shirt? Doh!

Paper coffee cups from Starbucks have a fundamental design flaw that causes unnecessary drippage. When the vertical cup seam is lined up near the sipping hole in the lid, coffee collects under the lid at the seam and invariably drips on your shirt. To avoid sloppy-coffee-shirt syndrome, make sure the lid hole is on the opposite side from the cup’s seam.
