The Surprising History of Olive Oil in Coffee

Coffee First Arrived in Italy in the 1570s

Coffee is consumed by billions of people worldwide, and if we go into the history of coffee, we will discover that it dates back to the 15th century, when certain Sufis branded it as a mandatory drink that acts as a boost for their nightly prayers. It is primarily due to the scent and energy boost provided by a shot of coffee. After then, around the turn of the century, the drink’s popularity spread over the world, and Arabica beans were farmed in Yemen and traded all over the Middle East when the first coffee cafes opened.

The Invention of the Espresso Machine

With the passage of time, coffee consumption became part of the lifestyle, and coffee enthusiasts all over the world evolved their own manner of enjoying coffee by utilizing various equipment, different types of coffee beans, and also in various combinations. This resulted in the invention of the Espresso machine in the early nineteenth century. Initially, the machines were inefficient and not available to everyone, as they are now. These were only available in certain locations, and people had to drive vast distances and wait in long lines to get a cup of coffee.

But, as time passed and the demand for coffee increased during the mid-nineteenth century, the espresso machine evolved to become increasingly efficient and advanced, and more standing coffee shops sprouted up in cities as the nation’s people migrated in huge numbers within the country. These coffee shops have evolved into public places of relaxation where people can unwind over a cup of coffee.

A Cup of Coffee With Olive Oil.

Italy is well-known for both coffee and olive oil. It is not only an important part of many Italian dishes, but it is also used to make lotions, soaps, furniture oils, and other things.
Coffee and olives are both small fruits with big flavors that have a long history in Italy. Schultz was visiting in Sicily when he had the idea to mix these two strong ingredients to give coffee a new taste. “I’m completely shocked by the results,” he said. It gave both hot and cold coffee drinks an unexpectedly smooth, buttery taste that made the coffee taste better and lingered beautifully on the tongue.

The Beginning of Oleato Beverages By Starbucks

On his way back Schultz was offered an opportunity by the Starbucks beverage development team in Seattle, to recreate and share his experience on a larger scale
Starbucks has maintained its motive approach of bringing something new and innovative to coffee enthusiasts. They twisted Schultz’s experiment of combining coffee and olive oil and oat milk for greater results, and the results were truly spectacular. The olive was a magical element that gave smoothness to the coffee. Rummel stated that this was the beginning of OleatoTM beverages, a new range of Italian-inspired drinks that recently debuted to the globe at the Starbucks Reserve® Roastery in Milan. “I realized that each way of putting olive oil into the drink added something different,” and this is a twist on an old Sicilian tradition that introduces new flavors to coffee lovers all around the world.

The History of Nespresso

The growing demand for coffee prompted the development of numerous espresso machines, with manufacturers making various types of machines and farmers harvesting various types of coffee beans. All of this created a fuss, and people were confused about which coffee machine to buy and which to avoid. Despite all the disputes, the Nespresso machine sold out first, and coffee pods grown and harvested by our farmers were qualified as high-quality coffee beans.

Nespresso’s history began more than three decades ago with the simplistic belief that everyone should be able to make coffee shots like a bartender; the rest is history.
