Starbucks Employee Treats NYPD To Free Coffee (Video)

A video shot at the scene of the bomb explosion that occurred in Manhattan Sept. 17 shows a Starbucks employee giving police officers free coffee and pastries as a show of appreciation for their work.

In the video clip, the man is heard telling the officers that he works at the Starbucks on 23rd and Fifth.

"Thank you so much," one officer says as he takes the coffee.

"Thanks a lot, man," the other says.

The Starbucks employee hands over three large bags that he says contain cups, sugar and pastries.

"I wish I could give you more," he says before telling them to enjoy and thanking them for their hard work.

One of the officers asks him his name, and he says that it's Jermaine. They thank him once again as they shake his hand. Before walking away, Jermaine reminds the officers that they're welcome anytime at the Starbucks on 23rd and Fifth.

The explosion that took place in New York City's Chelsea neighborhood left 29 people injured, according to NBC News. Since then, Gov. Andrew Cuomo has ordered 1,000 additional New York State police officers and National Guard personnel to help patrol the city.

New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio indicated that people can expect to see more police officers than they ever have before.

"You should know you will see a very substantial NYPD presence this week," he said, according to CNN. "Bigger than ever."
