What is Starbucks Oleato Caffè Latte?

Starbucks describes the Oleato Caffè Latte as a “velvety smooth, deliciously lush latte” made with their signature Blonde Espresso Roast infused with Partanna extra virgin olive oil and steamed with creamy oat milk. The result is a light and subtly sweet flavor that will satisfy your coffee cravings.

Equipment You’ll Need

To make Olive Oil Coffee, you’ll need the following equipment:

  • Espresso Machine: You can use any espresso machine, such as the Nespresso VertuoPlus Coffee and Espresso Machine, or even try some hacks for making espresso without a dedicated machine.
  • Milk Frother: A milk frother, like the Nespresso Aeroccino3 Milk Frother, will help create the perfect frothed texture for your latte. Alternatively, you can froth milk using other easy methods.

Olive Oil Coffee Ingredients

To make Olive Oil Coffee, you will need the following ingredients:

  • Starbucks Blonde Espresso Roast: You can use Nespresso Vertuo pods or any medium-bodied espresso as a substitute. If you have an espresso maker, you can also use Starbucks Blonde Espresso roast whole beans.
  • Oatly Barista Edition Oatmilk: This is the exact oat milk used by Starbucks, but feel free to use any oat milk or your preferred dairy or non-dairy milk.
  • Partanna Extra Virgin Olive Oil: Starbucks adds a spoonful of Partanna Cold-pressed Extra Virgin Olive Oil, but you can use any high-quality extra virgin olive oil as a substitute.

How to Make Olive Oil Coffee

Making Olive Oil Coffee is quick and easy – it only takes 5 minutes!

  1. Add oat milk and extra virgin olive oil to the milk frother.
  2. Meanwhile, prepare an espresso pod or make 1.5 oz of espresso with an espresso maker.
  3. Pour the frothed olive oil-infused oat milk into the espresso. You can stir it if desired.
  4. Enjoy your homemade Olive Oil Coffee!

Sweeteners: To Add or Not to Add?

While Starbucks Oleato Caffè Latte doesn’t include sweeteners, you can personalize your latte at home. Vanilla syrup, maple syrup, hazelnut syrup, brown sugar, Stevia, honey, and other sweeteners can enhance the flavor according to your taste preferences.

The Stirring Dilemma

When it comes to stirring a latte, there’s no consensus among coffee shops. Some prefer to mix in the foamy bubbles, while others keep them separate for latte art. At home, we tried both stirred and unstirred Oleato Caffè Lattes. Not stirring allowed us to taste the olive oil that had been steamed into the oat milk more intensely. However, stirring provided a more balanced and smooth taste. The choice between stirring or not stirring ultimately depends on your personal preference.

The Benefits of Olive Oil in Coffee

Adding fat to coffee is not a new concept, and olive oil has its own set of benefits. Beyond adding a slightly nutty flavor that complements the espresso and oat milk, olive oil is a superfood rich in healthy fats and antioxidants. It promotes heart, digestive, skin, and brain health, and possesses anti-inflammatory properties. Additionally, the fat from olive oil slows down caffeine absorption, providing longer-lasting energy and preventing energy crashes.
