Food and the City: Waking up with Lavazza Coffee

Waking up with Lavazza Coffee


What's better - a freshly brewed cup of coffee in the morning, or a freshly brewed cup of coffee in the morning? We'll settle that for you - it's most definitely a freshly brewed cup of coffee in the morning.

If you're not familiar with Lavazza Coffee, we're about to get you two very well acquainted. We had the opportunity to try out their new line of coffee blends, and be introduced to it in a very lavish, unique way!


Yup..that's me up there, being woken up by my super fancy Nexus 7 (thanks Lavazza!), that was in disguise as a special Lavazza alarm clock, to which I was then serenaded by a handsome Italian man, Mr. Buongiorno himself, who then proceeded to make me a cup of coffee. ALL THE WAY IN ITALY. Talk about a #buongiorno! 

We chatted, spoke about Milan, how I've never been there, and how I'm clearly missing out on life. A greeting from Mr. Buongiorno was a great way to start to start my day, and I'm so happy that I had the chance to experience that! The detail Lavazza put into their presentation was outstanding, and that sort of passion just reflects onto their product. Take a look at a few of the flavors we got to try:


  • Gran SelezioneGran Selezione comes exclusively from Rainforest Alliance Certified™ coffee farms. It is a premium Arabica blend, sourced from Central and South America, with chocolate undertones and a full-bodied taste. 100% fine Arabica, 100% sustainably grown.
  • Gran Aroma: Gran Aroma is a balanced, highly aromatic blend of premium 100% Arabica beans from South America. It has a floral aroma and citrusy flavor profile, ideal for the true coffee connoisseur.
  • ClassicoClassico’s balanced roast time produces its signature intense aroma of dried fruits, along with the rich and full body of beans sourced from South America and Africa. Enjoy this blend as part of your everyday coffee ritual.
  • Perfetto: Made from 100% carefully selected Arabica beans from Central and South America, Perfetto is bold with lingering caramel notes. It is roasted a bit longer to produce a “perfect” and characteristically Italian dark flavor profile. The ideal choice for those who love the pure pleasure of espresso roasts.


If you have a coffee lover in your life, I highly recommend checking out Lavazza products for all your gift-giving needs this holiday season. Maybe pick up a shiny new Keurig to go along with the new K-cups? Just sayin'.

Overall, we highly enjoyed our Lavazza experience, and can't stress enough how wonderful of a brand they truly are! Buongiorno!
