What will I now do since Star-K can no longer vouch if any of the Frappuccinos at Starbucks are reliably kosher or not?July 11, 2018 7:13 pm at 7:13 pm #1556233
Drink Gevalia.July 11, 2018 7:26 pm at 7:26 pm #1556255
Joseph, what happened to Taster’s Choice?July 11, 2018 10:44 pm at 10:44 pm #1556289
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.July 11, 2018 10:56 pm at 10:56 pm #1556320
They should be taking a step up to Taster’s Choice.July 11, 2018 10:56 pm at 10:56 pm #1556319

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.July 12, 2018 8:26 am at 8:26 am #1556374
J&J? Why not just go for mountain dew?July 12, 2018 12:09 pm at 12:09 pm #1556380
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.July 13, 2018 12:17 pm at 12:17 pm #1557592
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.July 16, 2018 9:22 pm at 9:22 pm #1559305
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!).
