I'm Kylie and have been gluten free for a year. Things have been going relatively well, but i am still having a few digestive problems. One was this evening, and so i decided to post and see if anyone knew anything about it. Starbucks coffee, nowhere can i find any hints on ingredients for the instore coffee. I know the bottled beverages (except for mocha flavor) have maltodextrin in them. I drink the peppermint mocha (either hot or frappachino style). And tonight i have been rather ill. Now it's not the normal, you're feeling ok, not feeling good, feeling really really crappy, loose all your food, start to feel a little better celiac sick. It lasted for hours, and is still lingering. So if anyone has any insight i would really appreciate it! Thanks a lot.

What was said above is what I've heard, too. There's a lifelong celiac at the Starbucks I went to where we used to live and she verified it, and I trust her.
What might have happened is that their coffee, especially their espresso, is very strong. Many people get loose stools after drinking coffee. In fact, I've always found a venti Starbucks coffee to work wonders on constipation . Maybe it's not a gluten problem.
The other thing is, the lattes have a LOT of milk .... that ended up being a problem for me. I would get sick every time I had a latte, but it was the casein, not gluten.
EDIT- if you got it frapp style, perhaps the blender wasn't cleaned out good enough. I always mention I have food allergies and they clean them extra for me ... well, before I knew about my casein problem ...
