Hey everyone. Is Starbucks a safe place to purchase a cup of coffee? I know I shouldn't try for the blended beverages, but as far as plan and simple black coffee or plain iced coffee, would it be safe? I do like cream and sugar in my coffee.. As long as its not flavored, it would be safe right..? I'm new to this and there is a starbucks right by my work that I used to enjoy on occasion.


Do yall think it would be okay? Or would you say not because of the risk of cross contamination? I know that they probably don't clean their blenders after each use, but common sense tells me that plain brewed coffee should be fine. But what do I know....I was only diagnosed 2 weeks ago so I am still learning. Thanks in advance!

I'm not a fan of the flavor syrups, but most are gluten-free. You have to read the labels. I get lattes and iced coffees at Starbucks, often.

Yes! Go to Starbucks and enjoy your coffee-- with cream and sugar:). Plain coffee is fine.

I have their Awake Tea lattes several times a week-- I order mine without sweetener because I prefer it that way. Their classic syrup is gluten-free.

I often order plain black coffee.  Sounds really good right now! :P

I drink Starbucks plain coffee, lattes, and iced coffees (no simple syrup).

I add my sweetener using sugar packets, use their milk on the counter if I order black.
