What is the history behind Lavazza coffee?
Lavazza, Italy’s favorite coffee, began its journey in 1895 when Luigi Lavazza opened the first Lavazza store on via San Tommaso, Turin. Surrounded by sacks of coffee from different regions around the world, he created the distinctive blends that would make Lavazza a leader in Italian coffee production.
Since then, Lavazza has been leading the way for innovation in the quest for the perfect cup of coffee, including the first vacuum-sealed packaging in 1950. Today, Lavazza coffee continues to be the preferred Italian coffee thanks to a passion for excellence in every cup.
What makes Lavazza coffee unique?
Its full-bodied flavor and notes of chocolate, fruits, and spices are a result of a special blend of premium Arabica beans from Central America and the African Highlands. What sets Lavazza espresso apart is its distinctively smooth and creamy taste that comes from a balanced combination of sweet and bitter flavors. Enhancing the nuanced qualities of each blend, Lavazza coffee beans undergo a roasting process with specially formulated cycles of timing and temperature. These time-honored production methods are what give Lavazza a distinctive flavor, making it stand out from the other Italian coffee brands. That, coupled with a meticulously curated blend of Arabica beans, is what makes Lavazza espresso the best Italian coffee available.

How to make Lavazza coffee
If you love the smell of freshly ground coffee, the extra effort of making Lavazza from whole beans will be worth the effort. The key to mastering the art of fresh ground brewing is having the right equipment: You’ll need a grinder that features several settings, including one for fine grounds, which is ideal for Lavazza espresso. For a rich and creamy espresso with a luscious, golden crema, fill and gently tamp the portafilter of your espresso machine with fresh coffee grinds. Then, add foamed milk for a cappuccino or latte or serve immediately as a single shot of espresso. Either way, get ready to enjoy the robust flavor of authentic Italian espresso from Lavazza.
With ground coffee, you can skip the grinding step and go straight to brewing, which all depends on your machine. Whether it is an electric machine or traditional stovetop, the grinds should be placed in the portafilter basket and lightly tamped, which helps to maximize water absorption during the brewing process.
