Owners Usman Ishaq and Sharjil Alam have brought the Franchise to Pakistan and
after a successful story of their café in Lahore, now bring to the Capital with a bang.
Café Barbera is a franchise from Italy that boasts a history of 140 years in coffee
business and is presently available in over thirty countries of the world. As the story
goes, in the late 18th century, a young man named Dominico Barbera fell famously
in love with a girl which resulted in an unfortunate loss of his job in the army, forcing
him to start roasting beans in the streets of Italy.
The roasting of the beans was unheard of at that time and Dominico was dubbed a
magician by many. Things soon became viral and the young man was led to open
what was Italy’s first roasting company, back in 1870. He called it Café Barbera.
Café Barbera’s interior deserves a mention. It is typical of a fashionable Italian eating
joint, appended with comfortable sofa chairs in red and charcoal grey. The side wall
boasts merchandise coffee cups and a wide array of beans displayed for customers
to peep into. In Pakistan, “coffee lovers are increasing but there is a dearth of authentic coffee
house” said Sharjil Alam, the proud owner. “Italian coffee is still a novel concept
