Lavazza’s mission is to bring the authentic Italian espresso experience to a global audience. For over 30 years Lavazza has devoted itself to gastronomy and product experimentation. Its training centre, founded in 1979 in Turin was the first espresso school in Italy and the company has now opened 50 further centres around the world. Italy’s favourite coffee collaborates with high-profile chefs around the world, including Ferran Adrià, Carlo Cracco and Massimo Bottura. Furthering their devotion to the Haute Cuisine, Lavazza is honoured to be a partner of Slow Food UK, showing their commitment to food with a dedication to community and environment.

Drinking coffee outside the home is a part of everyday UK culture. This one-time nation of tea-drinkers now produces some of the best food in the world and has also developed an appreciation for great coffee. Lavazza’s belief is that diners at top restaurants expect the coffee to be at least as good, if not better, than their coffee shop experience. As such, there is a risk that a sub-standard coffee at the end of a beautifully prepared meal can leave the customer with a bitter taste in their mouth. Lavazza believes capsule systems are the future when it comes to food service ensuring exceptional coffee is served consistently. Their BLUE capsule system produces an espresso that is unrivalled by any other method and is used by many top gastronomy restaurants including Nathan Outlaw in Rock, Cornwall, and L’Anima in London.
