    From my online research it appears as if every coffee bean in ny is kosher but when I look at there website it says “All stores in Ny are certified kosher. You will see a prominently displayed certificate at these locations” But then it goes on to say “Additionally all of our cofees, teas and powders used to make our beverages are kosher as well. The availability of kosher certified food varies by location”

    Can somebody explain this to me? I go to a cofeebean in NY can I get food there or not?

    I’m pretty sure the entire store is kosher, but I would contact the certifying kashrus agency to find out rather than relying on what anyone here says. The stores should also have a kashrus certificate specifying what exactly is kosher

    I would look carefully to make sure there’s a valid, current certificate (teudah) before buying. Really, we should all check for that every time we patronize a kosher establishment.

    “The availability of kosher certified food varies by location”. I take that to mean that while Store “1” sell products “A”, “B”, and “C”, Store “2” only sells “B” and “C”.

    STARBUCKS COFFEE IS KOSHER BUT THEIR FOOD PRODUCTS MAY NOT BE. BUT IF A CAKE OR COOKIE IS WRAPPED WITH A HECHSHER, ITS OK. DUNKIN DONUTS IN SOME PLACES HAS CHOLOV YISROEL.

    Theprof1: this is why every thread goes off topic. The person is specifically asking about the store Coffee Bean. What does Starbucks and Dunkin Donuts have to with it?

    The stores are allegedly kosher yet I’ve seen the goyishe workers warm treif food in the microwave there. There’s no shomer Shabbos on site. Same exact problems as Dunkin Donuts

    dovrosenbaum: Which Dunkin Donuts? There are a number of “Kosher DD” sites under different hashgachos. Please be more specific. While there may not be a mashgiach temidi some hashgachos have a “yotzei v’nichnas”.

    RedQuest: The NYC location at 22 Cortlandt St. (3rd Floor of Century 21) has a Teuda from the CHOF-K (or KOF-K) that all the products sold at that location is under their hashgachah. I would suggest calling them to find out about the other locations.

    Even if Vaad of 5 towns or Vaad of Elizabeth visits DD randomly throughout the day, if there’s no shomer shabbos there, how do you know they’re not using the microwave for their own food when the rabbi isn’t visiting once or twice a day?

    I think the logic is that since a Mashgiach can walk in at any moment, and they know that if they are caught doing that when the Mashgiach walks in, we can assume everything is ok. If you don’t use logic like this then there would even be a problem with a Mashgiach Temidi. What’s stopping a worker from secretly putting treif in the food?

    Just realized I missed a line in my post, but you can probably figure out what I meant.

    A mashgiach temidi needs to be on his toes, not sitting in a corner reading.

    You still have to rely on some assumptions based on the circumstances.

    No matter how alert the Mashgiach is, it’s always possible to get something by him. Given the circumstances though, we can ASSUME no one is doing that.

    dovrosenbaum: If you saw non-jewish workers warming up treif food in the microwave, did you report it to the person or organization responsible for the kashrus of the store? BTW, how were you able to tell it was treif?
