Proof of Vaccination + Photo ID to Enter Branch of Costa Coffee Prompts Backlash on Twitter

Discriminating against unvaxxed by ordering them to sit outside to drink their shit coffee probably not a good move.

A branch of Costa Coffee in Ireland is demanding customers show proof of vaccination and a photo ID if they wish to enter the shop.

A notice posted in the window of one of the company’s branches in the town of Killarney tells customers that not only must they have “proof of immunity,” consisting of either an EU digital COVID certificate, a HSE vaccination card or “proof they have recovered from COVID-19.” but also requiring photo ID such as a passport or driving license.

The notice goes on to say: “Please prepare these documents in advance and present at counter,” states the notice, adding that, “unvaccinated customers may sit OUTSIDE and may use takeaway cups only.”

The demands are being made upon customers despite there appearing to be no official Costa Coffee policy on the issue.

Respondents on Twitter expressed their fury at the shop’s policy.

“Bye, Costa. Regardless of how they try to divide us, no decent human being can surely be ok with this segregation on principle,” stated one. “Never ever again,” added another. “Not even in desperation will I ever go in a Costa or buy anything with the name Costa on it. And trust me I can do this til the day I die.” Whilst Katie Hopkins referred to Costa Coffee as 'tasting like Fox faeces' anyway.

Why the bleep would anyone want to drink Costa coffee. I've been 'left behind' since I've NEVER had a cup of Costa ! I haven't lived !! A new neighbour moved opposite 10 years ago and asked me to come and have a coffee with her in town. I declined, saying "all coffee in town is rubbish, I don't want any of it and I certainly don't want to pay for it!. I make real good coffee, I'll drink that. I do NOT have coffee in any of the 'chains'. As for Starbucks, apparently their coffee is mostly a 'cup of milk flavoured with a little coffee'. Can anyone improve on that.??
