Basically, many/most Starbucks are now “full service” stores and serve hot non-kosher foods made on premises. The cleaning process can then have a detrimental affect on the kashrus status of the beverage utensils.
It goes without saying, the ingredients themselves obviously have a direct impact on the kashrus status of the beverage you may order. Even for many of the “possibly kosher” ingredients, it is recommended that the consumer first check the original package that the ingredient came in before ordering it (I would venture that this recommendation may apply each and every time).
All this goes on in an establishment that has absolutely no kosher supervision whatsoever.
Apparently, Starbucks is now little different than a McDonald’s or a Burger King.
On top of all this, almost all of the the beverages that are supposedly deemed “okay” to drink rely on various leniencies that many kashrus observers would never think of employing in their own home. Sounds a lot like “I keep a kosher home, but…”
It boggles the mind how this became “acceptable” for otherwise kosher consumers.
Does posting these Starbucks deals fall into the category of “Lifnei eever lo sitain michshal” (literal: Do not place a stumbling block before a blind person)?

Fine. The Star-K is apparently more lenient in this regard than the cRc. But note what the Star-K states in the link you posted:
When one is traveling, (traveling means when one is away from home and no other viable kosher certified coffee option is readily available) this creates a situation of sha’as hadchak – i.e., a difficult situation and one need not be concerned with the restrictions on the beverages listed below
My questions:
How often is one really in a situation where “no other viable kosher certified coffee option is readily available”?
What constitutes “readily available”?
Does that “kosher certified coffee option” need to be similar to the exotic coffee options offered at Starbucks?
Does kosher option need to be similar to the perceived high quality offered at Starbucks?
I’m sure if one cares enough about these and other questions yet wants to be able to go to Starbucks with his guilt assuaged,
one can find favorable rabbinical responses to all of these questions.
(Hmmm… what if the Rabbi asked gives a favorable response to one of the questions but an unfavorable response to another? Time to go Rabbi shopping!)

The Star-K also writes:
We cannot recommend syrups, sauces, toppings, powders, soy or almond milk or other items not listed below unless customer confirms that they bear a reliable certification.
Like I queried before, does anyone really do that? And if you don’t check yourself but you know someone who did, would you rely on the results claimed? In my humble opinion, the results of any checking apply only to that particular product, at that particular store, and at that particular time.
Like I said before, it’s becoming very close to “I keep kosher at home, but.. “
