WASHINGTON (ABC7) - Chatter is brewing up over mega coffee chain Starbucks.

A Chicago woman is suing the business for $5 million for allegedly using too much ice in its cold drinks, according to CNN.

Stacy Pincus, the woman behind the suit, claims that Starbucks deceives its customers by filling its cups with ice, not the actual beverage.

"I'm fascinated that it has gone as far as it already has," said Starbucks customer Anna Fodero.

"It's a joke! An absolute joke," Bradley Davis said.

A spokesperson for Starbucks responded by saying:

Our customers understand and expect that ice is an essential component of any 'iced' beverage. If a customer is not satisfied with their beverage preparation, we will gladly remake it,' according to CNN.

The lawsuit seeks to obtain $5 million on behalf of any customer who has purchased an iced beverage from Starbucks in the last 10 years, according to NBC News.
