Watch deaf woman’s incredible sign-language exchange with Florida Starbucks barista

ST. AUGUSTINE, Fla. (WTLV) – An inspiring exchange between a customer and barista at a St. Augustine, Florida Starbucks this week is making major waves on social media.

Rebecca King, who’s deaf, was stunned when she stopped by the coffee shop on Monday and the barista taking her order popped up on a video screen and started signing back and forth with her.

“It is a big deal to the deaf community that Starbucks has one now. Nowhere else has that!” said King. “We all want to have that at every drive thru in the world.”

So the very next day, she returned to the Starbucks to record her experience. Then she posted it to Facebook. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
