Starbucks introduces coffee with olive oil in Italy
Starbucks has announced that it is launching olive oil coffee in Italy.
CEO Howard Schultz says olive oil improved the taste of the coffee.
Starbucks is among the major American businesses that have faced obstacles as they have tried to expand into the Italian food and beverage market.
That's because Italy is famous for its independent and often family-run cafes.
"Now, there will be people who say, olive oil in the coffee? But the proof is in the cup," Mr. Schultz said on the company's website.
"In more than 40 years, I can't remember a time when I've been so excited ," he added.
