Italy Trip Inspired Howard Schultz

According to an article by TimeOut, Starbucks founder Howard Schultz was inspired to use olive oil in their coffees after a trip to Italy. He learnt about the Mediterranean custom of consuming a spoonful of olive oil every day. So, after doing the same with his morning coffee, he decided to combine the two together. He describes olive oil-infused coffees as “butter flavours” that linger in a beautiful manner on the palate.
