Likewise, for those who want to remain faithful to their traditional drinks but want to delve into this world that combines new flavors, Starbucks announced that any other drink on your menu can be customized with this exclusive olive oil.

“Oleato represents the next coffee revolutionwhich unites the alchemy of nature’s best ingredients: Arabica coffee beans from Starbucks and cold-pressed extra virgin olive oil from Partanna,” commented the brand’s top executive, howard schultz.

The innovative idea of ​​combining these worlds arose by chance from Schultz, who will retire from the company next April, although without first making his last big bet. According to the company, 40 years ago, the businessman traveled to Italy and it was then that he was impressed with the coffee culture in local bars. Since then, he has set out to “bring the ritual of the artisanal espresso to Starbucks, where he already worked, and to America”.

Immersed in that desire, last year he visited Sicily and discovered “the Mediterranean custom of taking a spoonful” of this ‘liquid gold’ every day. Seeing that some even took it in the morning, at coffee time, she thought of “trying both things together” and thus gave rise to the new line.

This proposal, which applies to both hot and cold beverages, produces an “unexpected, velvety and buttery flavor that enhances the coffee and remains beautifully on the palate”, as described by the executive.

The person in charge of bringing this initiative to reality was Amy Dilger, Starbucks’ lead beverage developer, experimented with a series of high-quality Arabica blends and two Starbucks espressos, along with the oils. Thus, he discovered that, for example, the Partanna extra virgin olive oil infusions combined perfectly with the Starbucks Blonde Espresso Roast, with a smooth and round flavor, delicious both hot and iced.

“The infusion is very important. By infusing Partanna extra virgin olive oil by steaming or shaking it with oat milk, a luxurious experience and texture similar to that of whole milk is created,” Dilger commented.
