Our sustainability story starts from the grounds up
FLAVIA® is part of Lavazza, a family-run company that is as passionate about creating a better world as we are about delivering the perfect drink for each moment of your workday.
With our parent company, we work toward “A Goal in Every Cup," prioritizing key sustainability goals that are particularly relevant to our business and include areas where we can make the greatest impact. At Lavazza Professional, we look beyond the economic bottom line. We are here for people, for the planet, and for the purpose of creating the best world we can through every cup. How?

and take care of our farming communities
Almost 80% of all drinks we sell are third-party certified by Rainforest Alliance, one of the leading sustainability certifications in the industry.

1) The Water Needed to Have the Dutch Drink Coffee, UNESCO-Institute for Water Education, August 2003. One cup of coffee needs about 140 liters of water (incl. rainwater, washing beans). This amount was used to assess the amount of water savings per cup of coffee because a typical cup of coffee brewed with FLAVIA Freshpack uses about 8g of coffee compared to about 13g typically recommended by leading bean-to-cup manufacturers.
2) FLAVIA C500 compared to the VKI Eccellenza Touch brewing 30 cups of coffee over a simulated 24-hour period of workplace consumption.
