Starbucks Promo Codes And Specials: Oleato Coffee

As one of, if not the premier coffee chains in the world, Starbucks has always pushed the boundaries. So, here we go again with the introduction of Oleato Beverages to Starbucks – that’s coffee infused with Partanna extra virgin olive oil.

So, that sounds kind of crazy, but Starbucks actually tested this in Italy last year to resounding success. Italy knows coffee and olive oil, obviously. So, the phenomenon is coming stateside, with Oleato Beverages hitting Chicago, Seattle, New York and Los Angeles cafes. Starbucks describes the concoction as “Velvety smooth” and “Deliciously lush”. The options hitting U.S. markets are:

  • Starbucks Oleato Caffè Latte: Starbucks Blonde Espresso Roast infused with Partanna extra virgin olive oil, then steamed with creamy oatmilk
  • Starbucks Oleato Iced Shaken Espresso: Rich espresso with hazelnut tones mixed with creamy oatmilk and infused with Partanna extra virgin olive oil.
  • Starbucks Oleato Golden Foam Cold Brew: A dark, smooth cold brew infused with Partanna extra virgin olive oil.

Starbucks Oleato Beverages

Pricing will vary by market, but the Oleato Caffè Latte is about $6.75, the Oleato Golden Foam Cold Brew around $6.50 and the Oleato Iced Shaken Espresso, $6.75. Prices at Starbucks Reserve locations may be higher, but they have more Oleato options, too. Some Reserve spots are even offering an Oleato Tasting Experience for about $50.

The jury’s still out on whether this Oleato thing will gain broad appeal in the crowded and competitive coffee market, but Starbucks has made a living coming out ahead on stuff like this. Not everything they come up with turns to gold, but it’s usually unwise to bet against them.

Starbucks Winter Menu

Starbucks just launched its Winter Menu! Cozy up with some new items and returning favorites. Here is the lineup:

  • NEW Pistachio Cream Cold Brew: Cold coffee is a hit, regardless of the season, at Starbucks. This drink is a classic Cold Brew sweetened with vanilla syrup and topped with pistachio cream cold foam and salted sprinkles.
