123-year-old company to unveil new machine, coffee blend and Nespresso®* Compatible Capsules
Chicago, Illinois (May 18, 2018) – Lavazza, an authentic Italian family company and one of the leading global coffee companies, will launch three new ways to experience an authentic cup of Italian coffee at the National Restaurant Association (NRA) show in Chicago from May 19-21, including the restyled Lavazza BLUE 4700 machine, a preview of the new ¡Tierra! Colombia coffee blend and a new line of Nespresso®* Compatible Capsules for the hotel segment.
Lavazza BLUE 4700: Lavazza’s latest machine restyling uses an exclusive pod system designed to ensure consistent quality of Lavazza’s creamy and aromatic espresso with every use. The Lavazza BLUE capsules consist of a wide selection of blends to meet a range of tastes. The new machine, designed for food service, has an upgraded “easy milk” system, allowing the user to effortlessly froth or warm milk, as well as multiple programmable capacitive buttons. This machine continues the legacy of performance of the Lavazza BLUE series while improving in every detail.
¡Tierra! Colombia: Part of Lavazza’s legacy of ¡Tierra! blends, and available in the U.S. soon, this premium away-from-home blend originates in part from the Meta region of Colombia, at the foot of the Cordillera Oriental mountains, formerly a conflict region of the country where coffee could not be grown. Lavazza partnered with the Rainforest Alliance to help more than one hundred Colombian farming families rebuild coffee plantations in this region, creating optimal working conditions and increasing the productivity through sustainable growing standards.
