The inauguration of special coffee roasting Cafezal Coffee Hub, in Viale Premuda in Milan, falls during the 3 days of the world of coffee. The event about the coffee world actually returns from June 23 to 25, after the break due to the pandemic.
The term Cafezal in Portuguese it means “coffee plantation”, but in Milan, and for specialty coffee enthusiasts, it is the name of this micro roasting company, born in 2017 in via Solferino. To which this new Coffee Hub is added today.
The founder Carlos Bitencourt, an Italian-Brazilian engineer, describes Cafezal as a specialty roastery that also has its own café, and offers both breakfast and lunch.
On the 500 square meters in the new Cafezal Coffee Hub in Milan, specialty coffee is selected, roasted and sold. But above all, it is known: specialties are often perceived as a high-quality but difficult niche product. It is a product that has not yet been discovered. For this reason, there will be weekly courses on the coffee world, from basic for beginners to highly professional for baristas and restaurateurs.
“I have always believed,” explains Bitencourt, “that it is important to bring the end consumer closer to the producer. That is why we will arrange meetings with the major specialty coffee growers in the world at Cafezal in Viale Premuda. In addition, our customer will be able to have complete traceability. on what he buys, from the time the coffee bag leaves the original plantation until now “.
At Cafezal in viale Premuda in Milan, you can drink a high-quality espresso or enjoy a dish from the menu created by chef Eugenio Roncoroni. The large spaces also allow you to work in coworking or rent a lounge for a meeting.

All menu and prices for Cafezal Specialty Coffee Hub in Milan
Let’s start trying Cafezal’s breakfast in Milan, with a specialty coffee straight from Brazil. Good: I still have to get used to drinking coffee without sugar, milk, cream, but I liked it. The brioche is not bad either.
The breakfast and snack menu offers sweet and savory products, with excursions to pita bread, toast and poached eggs.
The menu page dedicated to coffee is remarkable: especially considering that the different specifications of the coffee served will be explained to you orally …
Eugenio Roncoroni’s hand can be seen in the lunch break menu at Cafezal Milano; it remains to inform about any accompanying specialty coffee. However, there is a drink menu.
Finally the aperitif menu. No dinner, but lots of snacks.
The Cafezal project
Cafezal in Milan is a start-up with an important growth strategy, the flagship of an ambitious and comprehensive expansion project in the specialty sector. The main idea is a “modern cafeteria” and a high-quality proposal for the product and the environment.
In addition to the traditional aspects of the quality café, such as attention and care in the preparations, there are also more “pop” aspects. Like the screen at the bar, the customer lets you see – almost like in a video game – the water’s temperature and pressure values when he prepares his espresso. Or the basic tasting course for 15 €, the coffee with double extraction for 3 € or the bag with special coffee for 10-15 €.
Finally, the renewed interest in the coffee world, which began with the Report Broadcasts, should be emphasized. Also noteworthy is the launch of the first paper guide to coffee and coffee roasts in Italy.
