Two friends say cheers

Photographer Sarah Flotard and Retoucer Jon Birdseye for Starbucks Oleato

Earlier this year photographer Sarah Flotard, food stylist Patty Wittman and retoucher Jon Birdseye joined forces to create delicious images for the launch of the Starbucks Oleato line of drinks. Oleato products are infused with Partanna extra virgin olive oil. The overnight shoot took place at the Seattle Starbucks Reserve Roastery & Tasting Room. The images are stunning and a great representation of the velvety smooth and lush Oleato beverages. The alchemy of Starbucks arabica coffee and premium Partanna extra virgin olive oil creates an entirely new experience, taking on a depth and dimension that simply must be tasted to be believed. Coffee and olives are not as different as they may seem. From the cafés of Milan to the ancient olive groves of Sicily and coffee fields of Costa Rica – experience the journey that has brought two of nature’s most transcendent ingredients together to create Starbucks Oleato. Who knew a coffee drink could taste this delicious! Lick your chops my friends!
