Lavazza to open first U.S. coffee roasting and packing plant in Pennsylvania

May 3, 2021

Lavazza North America, part of Italian coffee company Lavazza Group, said it has begun construction of its first roasting and packing plant in the United States. The new plant is slated to open in October 2021.

The plant is an expansion of the Lavazza Professional facility in West Chester, PA, which will integrate existing and new capabilities for Lavazza to produce roasted and ground coffee in the U.S. It will add 1,000 square feet to the existing 18,000-sq.ft. facility.

According to the coffee company, the expand plant will support new business, allowing it to be “more reactive in the U.S. market.”

"North America continues to be a strategic growth market for Lavazza Group and opening this facility in the United States will sharpen our competitive edge," said Davide Riboni, president and chief executive of BU Americas for Lavazza. "We will more efficiently service our current customers and offer incentives to attract new ones." 

Until now, all Lavazza roasted and ground coffee for the U.S. market was sourced from Italy.
