After a week dedicated to Baristas who will compete at WBC in Amsterdam, we are ready for another important event – The Milano Coffee Festival, an engaging full immersion – from the bean to the cup. It will be a great event dedicated to coffee lovers, roasters, coffee machine producers and sector operators from 19 to 21 May at  BASE in ‘via Tortona’. And we’ll be offering you some extraordinary coffees, prepared with two extraction methods: espresso and brewing.

Dario Ciarlantini and Rubens Gardelli, an AST trainer and the 2018 World Roasting Champion, will be together on the Victoria Arduino stand in via Tortona 54 (room C stand 36) to offer a real coffee experience over three days. And the coffees will be prepared with the gravimetric technology of  VA388 Black Eagle and the Mythos 2 grinder. A technology that guarantees maximum extraction control and reduces waste.
