Trained barista's

Monday 30 October 2017

Spotted on the back of a Husdons Coffee takeway cup:

Your choice of blend is hand crafted in your cup by our trained barista’s putting ‘a little love in every drop’.

That apostrophe in “barista’s” is wrong, right? I’m 98% sure it shouldn’t be there. It fails all the usual rules - no letters are omitted and nobody owns the “putting”. That 2% is because I can’t believe that none of the dozens of people involved in conceiving, designing, approving, manufacturing, and distributing this for a national coffee chain didn’t pick up on it.
