I mean this is a specialized coffee shop? As I take my first sip I can only scream in horror. My sensitive teeth are ruined. I must now sue. My dentist stated that I could not drink any cold drinks only warm drinks until my surgery date. That attendant never told me that this drink was iced coffee. I couldn’t feel if it was warm or cold through the insulated cup. Nothing on the menu indicated to me that this was a cold drink. And honestly who ever heard of iced coffee – coffee is supposed to be hot. Well, what do I do now? My teeth are ruined. I can’t talk because my jaw has locked up.
