September 6th, Starbucks opened their new coffee establishment Reserve Roastery Milan. Instead of targeting the more accessible coffee to-go market in America, they chose to try to penetrate the more conservative Italian market. The Reserve Roastery in Milan will be located in a former post office at the edge of the Piazzo Cordusio in Milan. In this spectacular building, Starbucks will try to show its craftsmanship and its ability to innovate to a broader audience in Southern Europe. Starbucks has opened a similar concept in Seattle in 2014 and one in Shanghai in 2017. So if you are curious for this new coffee experience, you do not have to travel all the way to America or China anymore, you can experience it in Milan as well.
