Starbucks Opens Their First Store in Italy: The Reserve Roastery Milan
In a country of coffee connoisseurs, Starbucks opens its first store in Italy, the Reserve Roastery Milan.
Perhaps the most beautiful Starbucks store to-date, it is located in a historic building on Milan’s Grandiose Piazzo Cordusio.
This store will be remarkably different in what it offers. This is because the Milanese branch will be the brand’s third reserve roastery. It will make up a space dedicated to the experience of coffee.
Inside, it offers a 360-degree look at the craft and science of coffee roasting. Customers are allowed to walk around the equipment used throughout every step of the process.
And there won’t be just coffee, Arriviamo Bar will serve cocktails and food. The Roastery will also introduce Starbucks’ first-ever affogato station.
To celebrate the new store, US locations will debut a new beverage called the Cordusio. The new drink is an espresso-forward mocha with a light dusting of cocoa powder. The name comes from the Reserve Roastery Milan’s Piazzo Cordusio home.
The new Starbucks Reserve Roastery Milan will open to the public on September 7.
