The company started its first training centre in India in March 2015 in Chennai. Thereon, another centre was established in Mumbai. With over 28 years of commitment to training on coffee and promoting the Lavazza coffee experience all over the world, the brand has trained over 7,200 baristas in the country between 2016 and 2022.
Commenting on the launch, Jai Ganesh Ramnath, MD, Lavazza India, said, “We are thrilled to be launching the third training centre in India, and spread the Italian coffee culture, one barista at a time. The newly launched training centre aims to teach baristas on perfecting the art of Espresso, since it’s at the heart of every single cup of coffee. We aim to achieve this by having skilled trainers who will demonstrate the art of coffee preparation in order to preserve the product’s quality both during preparation and consumption, whether at home or away. Similar to our other training centres, the Delhi centre will be open to baristas, bartenders, and students of coffee from across the country.”
