popa- were you really there all those hrs.? what in the world were you doing there???
Yes. I was doing work. Whatever my work is.
Will you continue drinking starbucks?
I intend to continue drinking until someone says I cannot. Especially in light of my investigation yesterday.
So is this thread ment as a public decleration of youre aveiros, becuase you dont sound very sory.
So, you don’t know how to spell. I don’t complain about you.February 14, 2011 11:06 pm at 11:06 pm #756618
SHILSHI said and i quote “how can anyone drink from starbucks even now, knowing what we now know. even if more information if forthcoming, we already know there is a major problem. i dont see how its possible to drink there” and this is before the cRc has made their final desicion.
He’s right to advocate not drinking there before the cRc makes their final determination.February 14, 2011 11:30 pm at 11:30 pm #756619
Shlishi was more than advocating. He said that “how can anyone drink from starbucks even now, knowing what we now know. even if more information if forthcoming, we already know there is a major problem.” it seems to me that he seems to have his mind made up that Starbucks is not kosher even without the verdict of the cRc.February 15, 2011 12:05 am at 12:05 am #756621shlishiMember
thank you. as i indicated, cRc has raised substantial kashrus issues they’ve recently uncovered in regards to starbucks. cRc has stated they’ve found the utensils used to serve and process the coffee to be non-kosher due to their treatment in the cleaning process. it is inconceivable that someone with yiras shamayim would drink there until and unless the issue is clarified in a positive manner.February 15, 2011 12:11 am at 12:11 am #756622chayav inish livisumayParticipant

You mean like your post?February 15, 2011 12:43 am at 12:43 am #756625
I was just in an obnoxious mood yesterday, as most of my posts showed. I was kidding.February 15, 2011 1:05 am at 1:05 am #756626

switch to dunkin donuts. many are under hechsher. selection and taste are different but your neshoma doesn’t have to worry.February 15, 2011 2:47 am at 2:47 am #756628
When it come to statbucksb vs. DUNKIN donuts, it is taste and selection. Go DUNKIN!February 15, 2011 4:04 am at 4:04 am #756629chayav inish livisumayParticipant
popa wheneve that happens take a stiff shot itll make u feel much betterFebruary 15, 2011 4:06 am at 4:06 am #756630
You should see what I’m like when I’ve been drinking.February 15, 2011 10:50 am at 10:50 am #756631
PBA, which SBUX were you in, the Bensonhurst minyan? 🙂
It looks like the CRC webpage previously referenced is not available. If it goes back up, I will read it and then discuss it with the head of the CRC so I can be sure what they hold.February 15, 2011 2:00 pm at 2:00 pm #756632
I copied from that link what was there when it was up.

Where is there a cholov yisrael Dunkin in Brooklyn/Manhattan? And what’s allowed?February 15, 2011 7:27 pm at 7:27 pm #756634
only water is allowedFebruary 15, 2011 8:25 pm at 8:25 pm #756635
Water is for lounges. Coffee is for Starbucks and Dunkin if I can find a cholov yisrael one.February 15, 2011 9:35 pm at 9:35 pm #756636
Why dont you bring along your own CY milk,in a little bottle,then you won’t have a problemFebruary 15, 2011 10:05 pm at 10:05 pm #756637
I try not to eat dairy equipment…that wouldn’t pose a problem? But really, I heard of cholov yisrael ones. Someone tell me where they are!February 15, 2011 10:39 pm at 10:39 pm #756638
You try not to eat dairy equipment? Well you never really should, I mean, it can be very detrimental to your digestive system, it’s not really made for metals, plastics, and rubberFebruary 15, 2011 11:14 pm at 11:14 pm #756639

And even if by some odd chance dunno meant food processed on dairy equipment, most likely (I assume; someone can correct me if I’m wrong) the coffee is made on parve equipment.February 15, 2011 11:16 pm at 11:16 pm #756640February 16, 2011 2:02 am at 2:02 am #756642cshapiroMember
dunno…dont listen to them, there are dunkin donuts in flatbush which have c’y milk. u can have tea or the fruit flavor coolatas, cause those are made with syrup that are not dairy. as far as starbucks, theres this passion flavored tea which i absolutely adore, and then theres a cinnoman spice one thats pretty yummy too….im not much of a tea drinker but i love these, and i have no choice cause i took on cyFebruary 16, 2011 2:11 am at 2:11 am #756643
Real funny! Get serious for a minute here!
That’s why I only drink coffee (and tea) from Starbucks. There are drinks there that are parve but made in dairy equipment so I don’t have that.
And I checked the article but that dates back to ’07. I’m gonna research updates to it. Thanks though!February 16, 2011 5:32 pm at 5:32 pm #756645
Yesterday I was sitting in a Starbucks when a chasidic couple came in and ordered plain brewed coffee in paper cups. They sat down at the table next to me and my friend. Then, the wife took out a bottle of Chalav Yisrael milk which they used for their coffee. (This is a common occurence at the SBUX Park Slope, but we were not in Park Slope.)
To top things off, she had an individual-serving of chocolate cheese cake which they shared with a spoon from home!
I was just wondering why one of the individually wrapped, plastic utensils that SBUX has for free wouldn not have worked for them.February 16, 2011 6:09 pm at 6:09 pm #756646
I am confused. So they brought a spoon.
Maybe they didn’t know there were spoons. Maybe they thought they couldn’t take one because they were only buying drinks, not food.February 16, 2011 6:13 pm at 6:13 pm #756647SacrilegeMember
“I was just wondering why one of the individually wrapped, plastic utensils that SBUX has for free wouldn not have worked for them.”
It tastes better on silverware. duh.February 16, 2011 6:20 pm at 6:20 pm #756648
I guess the dichotomy of people questioning the kashruth of everything at Starbucks posed against people bringing their own utensils went right by some folks.
By the way, sacrilege, I am confident the item they were eating would not taste better if it were eaten with a Christofle spoon.February 17, 2011 4:33 am at 4:33 am #756649
“Why dont you bring along your own CY milk,in a little bottle,then you won’t have a problem”
“I try not to eat dairy equipment…that wouldn’t pose a problem?”
“That’s why I only drink coffee (and tea) from Starbucks.”
Maybe I’m missing something but I don’t see the contradiction.February 18, 2011 6:40 am at 6:40 am #756650
Found this on a blog:
Rabbi Fishbane offered the following guidelines for kosher Starbucks customers:February 18, 2011 12:57 pm at 12:57 pm #756651

Was this said before or after the recent (Feb.) cRc alert?February 18, 2011 3:35 pm at 3:35 pm #756652
Daas Yochid -Best thing to do is to contact him yourself. If you want me to guess, I’d say maybe this is the reason of the alert!
I personally never drink coffee. I once had a cup of coffee from a starbucks in one of these service areas because I was really tired. I doubt there was a problem because it looked like that’s all they served.
I do know that where I live a lot of frum people go to the starbucks and get cofee and cookies. I already posted that the cookies are treif, now there is a Shaila on their coffee.February 20, 2011 6:59 pm at 6:59 pm #756653
I’m in starbucks again, and drinking coffee again.
I have meanwhile heard that it is actually the drip cone which is the problem, so I will ask later if they wash that by hand also like the carafe’s.
In any event, it is irui like I noted last week, and klipa’s are muttar bdieved when they are nivlal.
But maybe we should be concerned for the opinion that kli sheini is maflit or mavlia. So it could have been mavlia the tarfus through irui in the washing machine and now be maflit it into my coffee. Hmmmm. I’m too busy to think about these things right now. I’ll check back in if something occurs to me.February 20, 2011 7:17 pm at 7:17 pm #756654
Popa – If you want to meikel, that’s your business. You might be drinking the drip coffee. But why do you come on a public blog to show your impunity to kashrus org.? Why do you think you’re an armchair Poisek?
Basically he’s saying a latte is treif. You posting your kulos for someone who doesn’t know intracasies -might cause someone to drink this. By coming here and gloating, you might be oiver – l’fnei michshol!February 20, 2011 7:19 pm at 7:19 pm #756655
Meanwhile, enjoy your coffee, and if you ever figure out that it was treif, you can always do teshuva.February 20, 2011 7:23 pm at 7:23 pm #756656
Health: Don’t be ridiculous.February 20, 2011 7:36 pm at 7:36 pm #756657
Popa – What?-you think everyone knows the difference between types (espressos, lattes, etc.)?
I’m not so sure myself what every different type is.February 20, 2011 7:39 pm at 7:39 pm #756658
I can’t tell the difference between the coffee and the sandwiches, so when I order, I always ask if it is a coffee or a sandwich.February 20, 2011 11:10 pm at 11:10 pm #756659
I’m leaving now. I won’t sit in this trief store for one more minute!February 21, 2011 1:01 am at 1:01 am #756660
Every drop counts, even after 5 hours when it comes to Timtum Halev!February 27, 2011 6:51 am at 6:51 am #756661
Just want to bump this up now, in expectation of being there bright and early tomorrow morning.February 27, 2011 3:34 pm at 3:34 pm #756662
Ok. I’m here again. Drinking starbucks in the CR.
??? ?????? ?????February 27, 2011 3:42 pm at 3:42 pm #756663
Did they clean the keilim since your last visit?February 27, 2011 3:44 pm at 3:44 pm #756664
When I asked, the said, “are you out of your ?????”.February 27, 2011 4:05 pm at 4:05 pm #756665
??? ?????? ?????
So you’re drinking bottled water but not paying for it?February 27, 2011 4:07 pm at 4:07 pm #756666
No, I’m drinking from the toilet.February 27, 2011 4:10 pm at 4:10 pm #756667
Do you know if the cleaning agents they used to clean that is kosher?February 27, 2011 4:18 pm at 4:18 pm #756668
Do you know if the cleaning agents they used to clean that is kosher?
They don’t have cleaning agents. The regular agents (barista’s?) do the cleaning.February 27, 2011 4:22 pm at 4:22 pm #756669
No, I’m drinking from the toilet.
So the issur you’re being oiver on is not b’heimah t’meiah or gezel aku”m, but rather, bal t’shaktzu.February 27, 2011 4:23 pm at 4:23 pm #756670
Do they clean it together with the coffee machines?
