The Starbucks Oleato

Sophia Malone, Staff Writer

One of the leading coffee houses in the industry, Starbucks, has just re-imagined a drink like
never before.

Infused with Partanna (extra virgin olive oil) is the new drink the Oleato. This drink is rumored
to be smooth, creamy, and fragrant.

Starbucks is again leading the way with their new and innovative drinks.
“I love how they always co up with something new and how the drinks are always very
flavorful,” Chloe Agliano (9) said.

The Oleato flavor comes in three different drinks. The Oleato golden foam, on top of a dark, and
rich cold brew. The caffe latte with oat milk, and lastly the iced shaken espresso with oat milk
and toffee nut.

“This looks so good, I’m definitely very excited to come and try these drinks,” Hope Moser (9)

While this flavor is innovative, the reviews are mixed. As of right now this drink is only
available in Seattle and Los Angeles in select stores.

Customers seemed to have very differing views, some didn’t like the taste of it in their coffee,
and others loved how flavorful and smooth it was.

So, would students at Freedom try it?

“It seems very interesting, I don’t know how I’d feel about it, I’d have to try it to see,” Morgan
Scott (9) said.

The only way to know is to try it, hopefully in the coming weeks Starbucks will go national and
bring these flavors to locations all over the United States.
