    What will I now do since Star-K can no longer vouch if any of the Frappuccinos at Starbucks are reliably kosher or not?

    Drink Gevalia.

    Joseph, what happened to Taster’s Choice?

    Taster’s Choice is great, Daas Yochid, but for someone coming from being a Starbucks feinshmecker who just got kicked in the teeth from his nasty Starbucks habit when they suddenly stopped being kosher, I’d recommend Gevalia as a step-down without yet jumping to instant coffee, even if it is very good.

    They should be taking a step up to Taster’s Choice.

    Try Taster’s Choice Barista. But ask a Rav about drinking it on SHabbos; the reason it tates way better than reg instant coffee is a bit of raw grinds mixed in.

    J&J? Why not just go for mountain dew?

    If you don’t source your own beans from coffee farmers, you don’t get to be snobby about coffee. Especially if you only drink Arabica and Robusta.

    True aficionados only drink coffee where the beans were watched from the moment of harvesting. Some will settle for them being watched from the point of grinding.

    What I don’t get about the Starbucks situation is that, since the Expresso and Americano are still Kosher, how can anything on the menu ever have a status of “mutar b’shas hadchak?” You could always just get one of the things that’s still kosher.

    Just know that Starbucks Stores were NEVER kosher certified. Starbucks was giving into the Star K as far as how stuff was made and the Star K was disseminating the info as needed. You STILL had to inquire in the store to make sure (who knows if they were telling you the truth!).
