Roaster & cafe in Milan

Cafezal is a specialty coffee micro roastery and cafe in the center of Milan. Meaning coffee plantation in Portuguese, it is "a roastery that also has a cafe", is the way the Italian-Brazilian founder Carlos Bitencourt describes it. This was his first cafe-roastery, the newer location being Cafezal Coffee Hub located east of the city center.

In the corner of Cafezal, behind the counter, you'll find the roasting machine for all to see. It holds a maximum capacity of only 2.5 kilograms of coffee beans per batch, keeping in the spirit of a small specialty micro-roastery.

Cafezal has a stylish post-modern urban interior design, with colours that move from a black marble, to dark blue and satin copper. A place to hang out, slowly sip your coffee and be seen in the fashionable Milan.
