Still surprised bulletproof/butter/MCT coffee is not a staple menu item, could this be the start of a change towards the chains selling fatty coffee?
The world’s largest coffee chain Starbucks says it is launching a line of olive oil-infused drinks in Italy.
Chief executive Howard Schultz says olive oil’s “unexpected, velvety, buttery flavour… enhanced the coffee and lingers beautifully on the palate.”
Starbucks is among the major US businesses that have faced obstacles as they tried to expand into the Italian food and drinks market.
Italy’s coffee scene is famous for its independent and often family-run cafes.
Starbucks currently has around 20 stores in the country.
