In 1895, Luigi Lavazza opened his first Lavazza store in Via San Tommaso. Fascinated by how his blends would make his customers feel, Luigi studied the art of blending. Luigi learned about the different origins and characteristics of different coffee beans. After a trip to Brazil, Luigi saw just how much opportunity there is in the coffee industry. Luigi then came up with various ideas on how to blend different coffee beans from different parts of the world. It is this very idea that created the Lavazza blends today. If you are looking for coffee that is smooth with a slight hint of chocolate, then Copa Habanaâ€™s Lavazza range wonâ€™t disappoint.
