Starbucks to Launch Olive Oil-Infused Coffee Drinks in the UK
The new coffee trend of adding olive oil to coffee has taken Italy by storm. Starbucks set to launch a range of olive oil-infused drinks, including a latte and cold brew. This new range of drinks will be available in Starbucks’ 20 Italian stores from Wednesday. The company plans to introduce it to other countries, including the UK, later this year.
The idea for the new range of drinks came from the CEO of Starbucks, Howard Schultz. While in Sicily last year, Schultz began taking a daily spoonful of olive oil. He was struck by the unique flavor and health benefits. Howard quickly realized that this could be the next big thing in the coffee world. He then set to work on developing a range of drinks that would incorporate this popular Mediterranean ingredient.
CEO Hoaward Schultz believes that the combination of high-quality coffee and olive oil can create a smooth, rich, and indulgent flavor. He hopes it will appeal to coffee lovers all over the world. Schultz also notes that olive oil has numerous health benefits, including being high in antioxidants and anti-inflammatory properties.
Starbucks is no stranger to experimenting with new coffee flavors and trends. The company has previously introduced drinks made with turmeric, beetroot, and even charcoal. However, the addition of olive oil is perhaps the most unexpected and daring addition to the Starbucks menu yet.
Time will tell whether Starbucks plan to Launch Olive Oil-Infused Coffee Drinks in the UK will become a staple on the Starbucks menu, but for now, coffee lovers in Italy are eagerly anticipating the launch of this exciting new trend.
