Lavazza: Authentic Italian CoffeeIn 1895, Luigi Lavazza opened his first grocery shop in Turin. Following a trip to Brazil, where he learned about the potential of coffee, Lavazza began to combine coffee beans from all over the world, balancing their different characteristics to create unique blends. And so the Lavazza brand was born.Lavazza coffee capsules represent over 120 years of blending and roasting experience. Every year, Lavazza select the best coffee beans from the plantations all over the world to create specialised blends to suit different people and different occasions, whether its first thing in the morning, your tea break at work, or an after-dinner espresso. By combining beans which differ in terms of quality, type of processing (whether they’re washed or natural), and country of origin, Lavazza coffee is perfectly balanced, with a distinctive flavour, aroma and body. All of this is packed into their coffee pods for you to enjoy at your own leisure.Alongside their range of coffee blends, Lavazza coffee machines help you get that authentic Italian espresso with minimum effort. Just pop your pod into the coffee machine, use their simple controls and let it do all the hard work while you sit back and enjoy the aromas wafting through your house. If you prefer lattes or cappuccinos, Lavazza even make milk frothers for you to get that perfect, creamy, frothy consistency for the ultimate café-style coffee.Lavazza have continued to innovate and push boundaries well into the 21st century. In 2014, Lavazza took coffee into space, providing astronauts on the International Space Station with Italian espressos. As part of the companies sustainability drive, aimed to reduce the environmental impact of producing coffee at every stage of the process, Lavazza have embraced changes in both processing, packaging and coffee machines to ensure their coffee is as environmentally friendly as possible.
