The beautiful coffee shop is 25,000 square feet and boasts marble countertops, Italy-inspired architecture, multiple coffee bars, an actual bar with alcohol, an affogato station, and much more. If you stop by for a pour-over coffee, you just might linger for hours.
Starbucks’s former CEO Howard Schultz assures people that Starbucks doesn’t want to step on any toes. “We are not coming here to teach Italians how to make coffee, we’re coming here with humility and respect, to show what we’ve learned,” he said last year. ” This store will be the culmination of a great dream of mine.” And it’s a dream for any Starbucks-lover, too.
