If it wasn’t enough that people could add extra vanilla syrup, cold foam, ice, strawberry pulp, oat milk and whatever else, now they can add olive oil.
The coffee giant has launched a new ‘Oleato’ range in the U.S that includes a spoonful of Partanna cold-pressed virgin olive oil.
Starbucks executive officer, Howard Schultz, said he was inspired by the coffee he had during trips to Italy, and he’s hoping this kick starts a new coffee revolution around the world.
A spoonful of olive oil a day is already a bit of a health trend that is becoming more and more popular. Celebrities like Ryan Seacrest posted a video on Instagram sharing the benefits of his loved sip of olive oil.

Australia hasn’t joined the trend at our Starbucks stores yet but we have a feeling it won’t be everyone’s cup of joe!
