Twitter is convinced it's a Starbucks cup, but it really could be from anywhere.

A random coffee cup’s cameo in ” Game of Thrones ” was short-lived.

After hawk-eyed viewers spotted an out-of-place coffee cup in Sunday night’s episode of ” Game of Thrones, ” the show’s creators quietly digitally removed the anachronism.

The characters in the show drink wine and giant’s milk, but apparently not coffee. The scene is now caffeine-less on HBO Go, which streams the show.

HBO acknowledged the error in a Monday tweet, revealing that fierce dragon queen Daenerys is more of a tea than coffee gal.

” The latte that appeared in the episode was a mistake, ” the show’s producers wrote. ” # Daenerys had ordered an herbal tea. ”

Executive producer Bernie Caulfield apologized for the slip-up in a Monday interview with WNYC.

” I can’t believe it. Our prop people and decorators are so, you know, so on it 1,000%, ” Caulfield said. She added that, ” if that’s the worst thing they’re finding, then we’re in good shape. ”

She joked that ” Westeros was the first place to actually have Starbucks — that’s a little known fact. ”

There are now just two episodes left in the “Game of Thrones” finale, but fans probably won’t let this accidental coffee cup go for a while.
