Starbucks has apologized to a customer after she claimed she was served two drinks featuring satanic messages.

Customer Megan Pinion sent a message to Starbucks on Facebook Sunday along with the photo of the drinks, one featuring a pentagram and the other reading '666' in what appears to be caramel drizzle.

"This is how my coffee was served to me. I unfortunately can't give the young man's name who served it because I was so appalled that I could not bring myself to look at him. The star is almost okay because it is in your Starbucks logo, the 666, however was quite offensive," wrote Pinion.

Pinion told Starbucks she is a teacher in the public school system and while she'd like to share her Catholic faith, she knows not to do so at work.

"Fortunately, I have enough common sense to present myself with professionalism and follow an ethics code. Perhaps that could be suggested to that particular location," she continued.

Starbucks issued a direct apology to Pinion and released the following statement:

"We are taking this customer's complaint seriously and we have sincerely apologized for her experience. This obviously is not the type of experience we want to provide any of our customers, and is not representative of the customer service our partners provide to millions of customers every day."
