Go to the Milano website for a full description of the unique approach to roasting, blending and serving coffee that owner Brian Turko believes sets his coffee apart from, and above, the norm.
The following is excerpted from their website.
The Milano Difference
The miscela, or blend, is at the heart of our taste. While many attempt it, there are very few outside of Italy that can masterfully balance and harmonize 100% Arabica coffee into 9-10-11 (or even 12) bean blends. This is extremely rare in the coffee industry and we offer this to the coffee lover as an experience that sets Milano Coffee apart.”
