What Makes the Starbucks Oleato Golden Foam Cold Brew So Unique

Olive oil and cold brewed coffee? It may sound a bit unusual, but the new Oleato Golden Foam Cold Brew is peaking the interest of many Starbucks customers. The drink combines the chain’s famous cold brewed coffee with Vanilla Sweet Cream laced with just a touch of olive oil.

Strange, yes, but this iced coffee with oil-infused cold foam is utterly delicious and the perfect way to chill out on a warm day.

Why You Should Try This Recipe

Adding olive oil to Starbucks’ popular Vanilla Sweet Cream turns it into Oleato Golden Foam with an even more luxurious mouthfeel and creamy texture. And you don’t have to worry about your coffee tasting ‘off.’

The subtle olive oil flavors stay in the Sweet Vanilla Cream, and when using fresh, premium-quality olive oil, only the fruitier notes will come through. When sipping without a straw, the cold brew picks up just the slightest amount of sweet fruitiness from the foam.

How to Make Starbucks Oleato Golden Foam Cold Brew

To make cold brew coffee:

  • Pour cold water into a French press or a large mason jar.
  • Add coarsely ground coffee.
  • Cover the container with a lid and refrigerate it for at least 12 hours.
  • After 12 hours of cold brewing, separate the coffee from the grounds. If using a French press, press down the plunger and pour off the water. If using a Mason jar, pour the coffee through a coffee filter.
  • Store cold brew coffee in the refrigerator.

To make the vanilla simple syrup:

  1. Combine the sugar and water in a small saucepan.
  2. Simmer over medium-high heat while stirring with a wooden spoon until the sugar dissolves.
  3. Remove the rich simple syrup from the heat and allow it to cool.
  4. Stir in the vanilla extract.
  5. Transfer to an airtight container and put it in the fridge until needed. This recipe makes multiple servings.

To prepare the Oleato Golden Foam:

  1. In the jar of a blender, combine two tablespoons of vanilla simple syrup, milk, heavy cream, and extra virgin olive oil. If you don’t have a blender, you can try shaking all the ingredients in a jar with a screw-on lid, but the foam won’t be as dense.
  2. Blend on HIGH until the volume increases.

To assemble the drink:

  1. Add a good amount of ice to a tall glass.
  2. Drizzle a tablespoon of the Vanilla-flavored Rich Simple Syrup over the ice.
  3. Pour in the cold brewed coffee, leaving at least an inch of space at the top.
  4. Add the Oleato Golden Foam until it is level with the top of the glass.

What to Serve With This Drink

A bit of a bite goes well with a glass of Starbucks Oleato Golden Foam Cold Brew. Since the drink is already on the sweet side, try something a bit savory.

A buttery croissant is simple and quite good, but if you want to get fancy, a slice of Quiche Lorraine is just about perfect.

How to Store It

It is best to finish this drink right after making it, but you can keep most of the drink’s components in the fridge in separate airtight containers.

The cold brewed coffee should last four or five days and the Vanilla Simple Syrup for up to two weeks.

The Oleato Golden Foam will start to lose its volume soon after blending, so you should always make it fresh.
