Lavazza, the official sponsor of the Italian Cuisine World Summit (ICWS) is launching its ¡Tierra! Origins range in the UAE during the event.
The ¡Tierra! Origins range comprises single-origin coffee varieties certified by Rainforest Alliance, an international non-profit organisation committed to fostering biodiversity conservation and promoting the rights and wellbeing of farmers, their families and communities.
¡Tierra! Origins varieties available are: Espresso Brasile 100% Arabica, with dominant notes of honey, biscuits and chocolate; Espresso Brasile Blend (70% Arabica, 30% prized washed Robusta) with hints of chocolate, dried fruit and bitter cocoa; Filtro Tanzania 100% Arabica, with aromas of flowers and ripe fruits; Filtro Brasile 100% Arabica, with tangs of cereals and honey.
During ICWS, Lavazza also hosted a search for the ‘The Best Espresso in the UAE’, which brought the best baristas together under one roof to compete for the chance to win an all-expenses-paid trip to Italy to attend a barista course at the Lavazza global training centre.
In addition, a Lavazza themed dinner will take place on 14 November, hosted at the Vivaldi Ristorante by Michelin Star Chef Alfredo Russo in Sheraton Dubai Creek.
The 2016 edition of ICWS, taking place from 7-17 November, brings together Italian restaurants, food and wine producers, Michelin-starred chefs and culinary experts to showcase Italian cuisine, its ingredients and manufacturers.
