Starbucks is releasing a line of new drinks in Canada and it’s unlike anything they’ve done before. Starbucks announced that Oleato beverages will be available across Canada on January 30th, 2024 for the first time, bringing together the taste of coffee and Partanna extra virgin olive oil.
According to Starbucks, it will be introducing a couple of different options when it comes to the new olive oil drinks, debuting the new Oleato Golden Foam, Iced Shaken Espresso with Toffeenut and Oleato Oat Latte.
The Oleato Oat Latte blends Starbucks Blonde Espresso Roast with Partanna extra virgin olive oil, steamed with creamy beverage and is available iced or hot, while the Iced Shaken Espresso with Toffeenut has Starbucks Blonde espresso combined with notes of warm toffeenut and creamy oat beverage, topped with lush vanilla sweet cream that’s infused with Partanna extra virgin olive oil.
If you want to try to new taste of olive oil mixed with another drink, Oleato Golden Foam which is vanilla sweet cream infused with a spoonful of olive oil to create a cold foam, can be added to any cold beverage.
The blend of flavours is described as creating “a velvety smooth, deliciously lush coffee for customers to enjoy an elevated coffee experience.”
These special beverages began in Sicily when Starbucks founder Howard Schultz was introduced to the daily Mediterranean custom of having a spoonful of olive oil. “As he sipped his morning coffee, he was inspired to try the two together. There he unlocked the unexpected: coffee enhanced with lush, velvety flavour that lingers beautifully on the palate.”
The drinks are also available in other markets around the world including Italy, the U.S., Japan, the UK and France.
Time to try something new!
