Starbucks opens its first store in Italy. It is a Milan Roastery, with a coffee roasting facility inside the store. Customers can choose from a variety of products including espressos, made-to-order ice-creams and pizza.
The roaster will offer "premium, small batch" coffees, according to the company. An espresso will cost €1.80 ($2.10), which is considerably higher-end compared to many Italian cafes. The Italian menu won’t have Frappuccinos.
