Our Story

“It was an early morning when I woke up looking for an adventure. I was going to start my first job as a Barista in a small British local coffee shop,” says George Martin, Founder of Grano Milano. “That was when I fell in love with coffee for the rest of my life, I guess… As I had to wake up early, mornings were tough on me. Coffee could make my mornings better. I knew what quality coffee should taste like and I wasn’t able to have it at home. That’s probably when it all started. To make quality brews affordable and always available at home, I decided to move to Milan, Italy, and learn more about the industry. I was lucky to find the like-minded professionals”.

Together with the Partners, George Martin studied coffee, smells and sounds of perfect roasts. It took them years to find the best blends and discover sophisticated coffee tastes of high class.

For the last two years, George Martin’s Partners and the team cooperated with the consumers closely. We ran blinded experiments to collect feedback from the coffee gourmets. When compared to the market leaders, Grano Milano capsuled coffee was proved to have distinct aroma, flavour, and the aftertaste, with characteristic dense crema on top of each Grano Milano’s brew.

Following our consumers’ preferences and their prior experience, our high-priority mission has been to keep innovating with the capsules and improving them to develop an ideal design. Today, Grano Milano coffee capsules are tailored to preserve carefully selected coffee tastes and ensure each pod gets brewed safely and perfectly.
