Daily Coffee is a proud importer and representor of Lavazza, a familiar brand from Turin, with 122 years of history.
Lavazza’s history starts back in 1895, when young Luigi Lavazza left to Brazil and created what would be the world’s first coffee blend.
Luigi Lavazza created the concept of mixing different coffee origins and characteristics, studying the art of blending to meet the tastes of his customers.
During industrialisation, Lavazza built the factory that still stands today as the largest food business factory in Europe, where the best Lavazza blends are continuously produced.
Years later, Luigi’s son, Pericle Lavazza, developed a natural method of coffee decaffeination through water processing. For the first time, a decaffeination formula was patented without the use of benzene.
Pericle Lavazza, a scientist, pharmacist and coffee lover, was the creator of the natural decaffeination process – Lavazza DEK, still an international bestseller today, produced in an exclusively decaffeinating factory.
By the end of the 1980s, Lavazza had already expanded to various European countries, USA and Australia. Concurrently, the first closed system of coffee machines and capsules was created and made available to companies – Lavazza Espresso Point, a range presently reaching two million coffee machines installed throughout the world and now commercialized by Daily Coffee.
Back in the 1980s, two new factories opened in the north of Italy: one for manufacturing coffee machines and another for capsule production, the latter one receiving already ground and roasted coffee from the main factory.
Years later, now spread to 90 countries and with all its Italian factories able to roast, grind and package coffee and capsules nonstop, Lavazza continued to expand and diversify.
In 2015, Lavazza stepped into outer space with ISSpresso, the first and only capsule-based espresso system able to work in the extreme conditions of space, designed in partnership with the Italian space agency – Argotec. ISSpresso is now daily served aboard the International Space Station.
In 2016, concurrent with Daily Coffee’s arrival to Lisbon, Lavazza acquired Carte Noire and Merrild, major brands in the French and northern European markets, respectively. Currently, Lavazza owns three factories in Italy, another based in France, two plants in India and one in Brazil, exporting its products to over 90 countries and with an estimated revenue of two billion euros in 2020.
Nowadays it’s our turn to acquaint the Portuguese with the real Italian Espresso and the exclusive Lavazza coffee machine systems and capsules, now also available online.
