live Coffee Bean Roasting at Starbucks Reserve Roastery Milano

Starbucks Reserve Milan Travel Blog JoyDellaVita

Starbucks Reserve Roastery Milan has got to be one of the poshest and most exclusive Starbucks you have ever stepped foot in. Or is it usual for you, to observe live coffee bean roasting while sipping your preferred hot or cold caffeinated beverage? In a coffee-enthusiastic country such as Italy, it’s no surprise that just until recently, there hasn’t been a single Starbucks “allowed” in Italy. Just check out this extensive list of all the different coffee drinks in Italy, to understand the italian coffee culture a bit more.

So, for sure the Seattle-based coffee house gigant Starbucks needs to step their game up, if they want to succeed in Italy. And interest Italians in their specialities. Italians love to drink their coffee short, sweet and strong, the description of a perfect Espresso with sugar, quickly consumed standing at a bar and having an even quicker (or way longer) chat with bystanders.

Starbucks Reserve Milan first opened in September 2018. According to their website, they “pay tribute to the passion, science and craft of coffee found within these city streets”. Exclusive Design, and multiple stations across the public areas will merely match your previous experiences at regular Starbucks Cafés. At the Reserve Roastery you will find an outdoor Terrace to enjoy your drinks, the Main Bar, the live-Roastery with the Scolari Roaster centrally situated, a scooping bar to try out different coffee blends, Princi Bar, the Arriviamo Bar as well as an Back Patio at the very other side of the Starbucks.
Upon entering Starbucks Reserve Milan you will soon notice how different this place is. There are menu cards available at the entrance, and among other things you can choose the brewing method of your coffee beverage. Clover brewed, Modbar Pour-Over, Coffee Press, Siphon brewed with a Chemex. Enjoy an Espresso-based drink, a Nitro brewed or cold brewed drink. Or one of the exclusive Roastery Creations, such as a sparkling Espresso with Mint, a shaked iced double shot Bianco, or a Caffe Gelato Shake.

The latter is what I tried. It’s prepared in front of your eyes using liquid nitrogen, turning the fluid milk-mix into ice-cream within just a few minutes. Personally the drink was way too sweet for me, I should have definitely tried something more along a Nitro Gelato Affogato or simply an Espresso con Panna, an espresso with whipped cream, instead of this iced coffee-milk shake. Check out this page here for their full menu.

If you are into coffee and enjoy drinking variations of it, instead of just what a Nespresso machine is pumping out of a capsule, you should definitely visit Starbucks Reserve Roastery Milan for a caffeinated-pick-me-up and a snack.
