Lavazza announced that it has opened a new café in Chicago, Ill. The Lavazza Café at Eataly Chicago offers a repertoire of espresso-based beverages and high-quality coffees. The café also produces a wide range of original and innovative recipes, all prepared by expertly trained staff who take pride in providing exceptional products and service in the typical traditional Italian fashion, with Italian passion in every cup! Lavazza’s entire product line will also be available for purchase for at-home use including its espresso blends, the brand’s new premium drip coffee line and the Keurig® Cappuccino and Latte System – a capsule-based brewing machine.
“Our presence in Chicago is another chapter in a compelling story: two Italian companies committed towards a shared vision, under the conviction that a significant part of Italy’s future revolves around high-quality food production and the tangible and intangible values that it represents. We are proud of our partnership with Eataly, which is part of our strategy aimed at making North America, and the U.S. in particular, our second home,” said Marco Lavazza, the group’s vice president, in a prepared statement.
The high-end design of the Lavazza Café embodies the company’s passion for perfection and long lasting quality. Upon entering the venue, a winding counter, approximately 60 feet long, greets guests. Furnishings and décor reflect the company’s commitment to sustainability including photographs, taken by photographer Steven McCurry, as part of Lavazza’s ¡Tierra! project. The communities involved in this project, including coffee plantations in Honduras, Peru, Columbia, India, Brazil and Tanzania, are featured in the venue and Lavazza’s ¡Tierra! coffee will also available for purchase in Eataly Chicago.
