Plus, they are expanding to major cities such as Austin, Boston, Chicago, Dallas, and Miami.
Some Oleato drinkers have reported upset stomachs.
Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz says Oleato drinkers can expect a “velvety, buttery flavor,” but some coffee drinkers have reported some more sour effects. Starbucks customers have taken to Twitter since the larger release of Oleato beverages, talking about unpleasant stomach issues as a result of drinking the new beverage. So — proceed with caution.
Create your own Starbucks olive oil-infused coffee at home.
While you might be tempted to pour a teaspoon of olive oil into your coffee, that isn’t how you can make olive oil coffee. Instead you should infuse your oat milk with olive oil by steaming, blending, or shaking it with oat milk. The exact amount of olive oil to use will depend on your personal taste preferences, but start with just a small amount, such as a teaspoon or less and adjust as needed.
According to the American Heart Association, a half-tablespoon of olive oil a day can decrease the risk of heart disease, and it’s linked to improving digestion and reducing inflammation. Plus the olive oil in coffee will cut the acidity of the coffee and adds a nutty flavor.
