Italy’s Favorite Espresso

When somebody says “ Italy’s favorite espresso”, doesn’t one of the world’s best-known coffee brands, Lavazza come to your mind? 

It all started with a man from Turin, Italy – Luigi Lavazza who founded the company in 1895. His beginnings were humble, though.

Being a young entrepreneur, he started with a small grocery store while experimenting with grinding beans and mixing different blends to suit the taste of his customers. Over the generations, Luigi and his family became experts in the coffee-making process. 

Today, Lavazza is led by the fourth generation and it is the symbol of Italian espresso around the world.


Types of Lavazza Coffee


Lavazza coffee ranges from capsules and instant coffee to coffee blends, beans, and pods.

Lavazza coffee beans are excellent, and each variety is unique.

Each variety contains different percentages of different beans in one pack. 

In addition to the distinctive characteristics of the roasting beans, the proportions of Arabica coffee and Robusta coffee change, which allows Lavazza to obtain coffee varieties with a distinct taste and flavor qualities.
