Pop into any Starbucks and your surroundings will feel immediately familiar. There’s the glass display case with baked goods and lollipops that are actually cake. Underneath that you have your array of packaged salads and juices. There’s the little station off to the side where you can add extra sugar and creamer to your coffee. Every Starbucks is the same… well, not every Starbucks. The Starbucks that just opened in Milan is nothing like your neighborhood one. Designed to pay homage to one of Milan’s gifts to the world, espresso, this Starbucks Reserve Roastery has a marble bar, back patio, palladiana floor, and beautiful exposed piping. You can talk to a Coffee Master at the scooping bar to help select the perfect coffee for you, and you can purchase unique gifts from the Handpicked at the Roastery shop that’s filled with more than mugs and thermoses. Sip on a flight of coffee brewed one of five different ways while you enjoy the lovely view from the terrace. We never thought we’d book a trip to see a Starbucks, but now we’re reconsidering.
