BRAND is a classic brand well-known all over the world. Its LOGO has changed shape and colour in the long run, however keeping the founder’s name. THE STORY SO FAR… …Lavazza was founded in the 24th march of 1894 by Luigi Lavazza who scraped together the sum of 26000 lire to buy an old grocery shop in the heart of Torino and went into business by himself. The shop sold a bit of everything and also produced soap, spirit, oil, spices and of course coffee. But the demand of this product was limited due to high costs so it was an elite product.
