Somebody started a petition against Starbucks Hey,

I just started the petition “Starbucks: Make Starbucks Kosher Again” and wanted to see if you could help by adding your name.

My goal is to reach 100,000 signatures and I need more support. You can read more and sign the petition here:

not kosher anymore or not under any supervision and basically eating at mcdonalds when you buy a coffee from Starbucks now ( especially in any location that serves food)

Dan

False. Read the link in the post.

Actually, not so false. Drinking a Cold Brew or any other “acceptable” beverage in a Starbucks that serves non-kosher food is basically no different than sitting down in a McDonald’s or Burger King, opening your laptop, and drinking a black coffee or cup of soda.
I would venture that most people who are “okay” with the former would not dream of doing the latter.

Not to belabor the point here but there are a number of things to keep in mind:

  • It’s not necessarily the same. The actual kashrus of the coffee might be similar but the ma’aris ayin aspect will be significantly greater in McDonald’s, depending on your approach.
  • This aspect of Starbucks is not at all new. The Star-K has for a couple of years now stated that regular coffee should not be consumed at Starbucks because of the dishes mixing and that espresso beverages are ok.
  • Probably most importantly for the purpose of this post and this site, this deal is specifically for espresso-based beverages which the Star-K still maintains are perfectly ok because they know they do not mix those utensils (whereas they probably don’t know anything about McDonald’s.)

Great points. Well said. Thanks!

1. How is the ma’aris ayin aspect any different? Starbucks (with food served), McDonald’s, Burger King, Panera Bread, etc. all serve treif. Is a ham sandwich less treif (and, ergo, less ma’aris ayin) than a cheese burger?
2. I agree that this issue is not new. I’ve been wondering about it for years. Does the age of the dilemma have any effect on how we respond?
3. “…they (the Star-K) know that they (Starbucks) do not mix those utensils…”
How does the Star-K know? From the mashgiach’s reports? Wait – there are no mashgichim.
This last statement of yours is either a reflection of the standards of the Star-K or of the veracity of your statements.

EB

According to R’ Heinemann, I believe, ma’aris ayin in these cases is dependent on what the location is known for. Starbucks is known for its coffee while McDonald’s (although they are consistently ranked higher in actual taste satisfaction than Starbucks) is known for its treif products. So someone seeing you go in to Starbucks will reasonably assume you are buying a coffee while someone seeing you enter a McDonald’s might suspect you are buying a cheeseburger.

The comment about not being a new issue was more directed at the original comment from @josh which began “Not kosher anymore

I believe this is not just a random fact but there are specific reasons why due to the delicate equipment used to make espresso, they need to wash them separately. It is obviously the Star-K’s position that this need not be verified by a mashgiach. At the very least, you should be ok with buying a cold brew there since that involves no cooking at all.
