Lavazza Foundation: Building a better world, one cup of coffee at a time

Lavazza Foundation promotes and finances international sustainability projects in coffee-growing countries.

Lavazza ¡TIERRA! is the result of a 2002 social responsibility project, in which we aimed to improve the living and environmental contritions of coffee-producing communities, as well as providing them with Lavazza’s technical know-how to enhance their businesses. 

Excellence. Care. Commitment.

Lavazza has always sourced its products from coffee-farmers and local coffee-traders, following strict criteria developed alongside our coffee experts. 

The coffee beans are carefully selected, before going through the delicate drum and air convection roasting systems – designed to ensure a long lasting taste.

¡Tierra! Colombia 100% Espresso Arabica

A blend of Colombian washed Arabica beans. An aromatic harmony and a mild taste highlighted by its characteristic sweetness, refined acidity and full body. Notes of tropical fruit are accompanied by scents of lime zest and jasmine, with a mild Liqueur-like aftertaste.

¡Tierra! Brasile 100% Arabica

Full body and smooth texture espresso. Arabica Lambari and Cereja Apassita create a sweet coffee, with notes of caramel, hazelnuts, honey and milk chocolate.

Training for excellence

Every day, the Lavazza Training Centre offers professional training courses that provide a deep understanding of the raw materials and the transformation process they undergo, promoting a quality coffee culture.
Our Training Centre has also earned the Premier Training Campus certification from the SCA – the Specialty Coffee Association: the world’s most authoritative association dedicated to promoting top quality coffee around the globe.
Lavazza is also the first Italian company to feature a “Q-Grader” coffee-tasting room, which provides the environment required to obtain an SCA-approved green coffee tasting licence.
