To all my fellow coffee lovers out there, especially those who get particularly excited when pulling up to our favorite caffeine source, Starbucks. It was back in August when I realized that this article would be necessary. You see, I am, admittedly, a caffeine addict. It’s only two shots of espresso each morning, but it’s my necessary first stop before each marathon day. If you also tend to frequent the shop on Route 35 in Oakhurst, whether during the summer or all year round, chances are you’ve bumped into me there. Throughout the years and hundreds of times, I’ve walked in to get my daily jolt, and I’ve seen all kinds of Jews ordering all kinds of drinks—kosher and non-kosher. I’m sorry. I’m really, really sorry if you were happily enjoying a favorite drink until now and I spoil that for you by telling you that it’s not kosher. But I’m sure you would rather know the truth.
