Starbucks Information

PLEASE NOTE: STARBUCKS IS ROLLING OUT A NEW FLAVOR SYSTEM AROUND THE COUNTRY. THE FLAVOR EXTRACTS BEING USED ARE NOT AS OF YET APPROVED. IF YOUR STORES ARE USING IT ALREADY YOU SHOULD NOT ORDER DRINKS WITH FLAVORS UNTIL THIS HAS BEEN RESOLVED.

Hot Beverages | Ice Beverages | Toppings | Syrups and Sauces

At full service Starbucks stores that serve treif meat, one should avoid buying drinks prepared with equipment that may have been washed with treif equipment. There are drinks (see listed below) that are prepared without any contact with questionable equipment and are acceptable at any store. We cannot recommend any other products in these stores (see items on the list below flagged with an X) unless they are packaged with a reliable certification.

All drinks listed below are permissible under one of the following conditions:

  • The store does not serve meat or cheese items; OR
  • It is one of the stores listed here that has implemented “kosher-friendly” equipment rinse practices to avoid issues with listed beverages; OR
  • When one is traveling*. According to Star-K policy, traveling creates a sha’as hadchak (i.e., no other viable option is readily available) during which one need not be concerned with the restrictions on the beverages listed below. Traveling means when you are away from your hometown. You do not need to be driving on the highway to fit into the category of traveling.

Please note: Starbucks stores serve cholov stam.

 The following recommendations are for the USA and Canada only.
