the milano taste

The Milano taste was developed from a century of artisanship in the Italian coffee tradition. The miscela, or blend, is at the heart of our taste. We often combine more than ten premium 100% Aribica coffee bean varietals from around the world in search of the perfect balance of body, flavour, sweetness, acidity and aroma.

Milano is proud to offer the only espresso tasting bars in Vancouver, where you can sample 8 different espressos at any given time. 

We’re dedicated to sourcing, hand roasting and blending each of our espressos, containing up to 13 different origin coffees. We put the same due diligence and passion into our pourover, drip and French press coffee blends. Our dark, medium, organic, and decafs deliver flavours found nowhere else in a brewed coffee blend.

Milano is a fervent supporter of small farm estate, fair trade and certified organic coffees. Although we first rate coffee by cup quality, at any given time there is up to 70% certified organic coffee beans in each of our blends.

Essential elements of coffee! This was created for the rainy west coast days. A big city roast with square edges. Tons of caramels, roasted for comfort. Created for milk based drinks—an ode to Caffe Latte lovers. Bold and a little roasty.
