Starbucks finally opens cafe in Italy, home of espresso

MILAN – US coffee giant Starbucks opens its first branch in Italy on Thursday (Sept 6), with the sprawling Milan ‘roastery’ at the avant garde of an ambitious plan to conquer the spiritual home of espresso.

The Seattle-based multinational is taking on a mainstay of Italian culture: a thick thimbleful of powerful black liquid served at the bar in cafes throughout the country, six billion times a year, according to Italian catering federation FIPE.
