Caffè Milani

THE HISTORY

In the historic centre of Como, it was impossible to resist the charm of the aroma of coffee coming from that door. It was 1937, and the door was that of the Celestino Milani workshop, where there was a small coffee bar with a discontinuous roaster, producing high-quality coffee. Not far from picturesque Lake Como, the Milani coffee bar attracted local residents, who soon began to go there on a daily basis for a pleasant break, but it also became a popular destination for tourists passing by, seeking a good Italian-style coffee.
Its coffee soon became a landmark throughout the city and beyond. The reasons for this well-deserved success? Simply Celestino’s endless passion. This passion is expressed through the accurate selection of the finest varieties of coffee, imported directly from its place of origin, paying meticulous attention to roasting and, of course, to skilful blending.
Milani therefore became a true ``Master Roaster``, one of the most attentive and skilled of his time.
This endless passion inevitably involved even the youngest son, Pierluigi.
Celestino taught him the secrets of roasting and the recipes of the blends: a precious treasure that he has jealously kept to this day.
In the following years, Pierluigi Milani continued to instill in the company in Lipomo the extreme attention to the production process that his father had taught him.
