Milano Roasters Opening of New Cafe on Government Street
VICTORIA - Vancouver-based Milano Roasters bring their award-winning coffee innovation to the province's capital with the opening of Milano Roasters on Government Street.
The new corner cafe boasts comfortable seating and a spacious outdoor patio for sunny Victoria days. Milano's Victoria cafe also offers daily sandwiches and serves baked goods from local artisan suppliers. The opening marks the second location on Vancouver Island, with a sister store up island in Comox.
Victorians now have access to Milano's internationally acclaimed blends. Experts around the world have celebrated Milano for its coffee blending, recognizing it as one of only a few roasters with the ability to continuously create such complex and balanced espresso blends.
This type of blending technology is unique to a handful of artists who understand coffee gastronomy. Milano's top twelve gold awarded blends to discover are Sauve Rico, New Italian, Franks, Silk Lili and Concept #9, La Futura, Butter, Velvet, Miscela Royale, Nuovo, and Lucky 13.
"We are thrilled to open a second location on Vancouver Island and bring Milano to our province's capital city," says owner Linda Turko. "The warm reception from locals and tourists has been wonderful since opening our doors, we are looking forward to building relationships with the community."
Milano's Mount Pleasant roasting facility on West 8th Ave, in Vancouver, B.C., is where Espresso Master Brian Turko's commitment to discovery, excellence and flat out mad professor of coffee invention takes place.
Increasing the separation from the current coffee shop tide of serving single origin coffees, Milano is dedicated to developing their blends by combining anywhere from seven to thirteen different single origin beans of the highest quality. Brian is an intentional alchemist and often spends years perfecting each blend.
