A Starbucks in Hong Kong was busted for using 'toilet water' to brew its coffee. Local newspaper Apple Daily reports the Starbucks used water from a faucet close to a bathroom urinal. A Starbucks spokesperson says the store used the water because it was the closest source, but has now switched to distilled water. Patrick Jones wonders if that will be enough to erase the bad taste in customer's mouths.
