San Tommaso 10 SAN TOMMASO 10 COFFEE MENU 1998 – Lavazza Team



In 1998
, the Training Center team was asked to create a series of coffee-based recipes for San Tommaso 10, the bar opened at the site of the drug store opened by Luigi Lavazza (the company's historic base), to mark Lavazza’s centenary.
The first menu featured coffee tiramisù, the coffee and chocolate drink “bicerin” from Turin, mint coffee and a range of other coffee-based alcoholic drinks.

In 2000
, at Lavazza's request, Italy's leading syrup manufacturer Fabbri 1905 created a special orange syrup which goes perfectly with coffee. This flavour was then joined by hazelnut, amaretto and chocolate varieties — a range of flavours that enhance the aroma of coffee.

LAVAZZA MILK TEXTURE MILK TEXTURE LAVAZZA 2000 – Lavazza Team




Milk Texture

I PIACERI DEL CAFFÈ I PIACERI DEL CAFFÈ 2000 – Lavazza Team




The recipes
in this collection are the first examples of Coffee Design developed by the Training Center, and represent a major innovation in the café industry.
The first steps towards experimenting with new recipes were taken in the late 1990s, and came from a desire to captivate the market with innovative Lavazza products.

The experiments began with the development of orange and lemon-flavoured syrups, a completely new idea as they were also compatible with milk and coffee.

Next came the research into Milk Texture and the I Piaceri del Caffè collection, inspired by brand-new textures and temperatures.
 


 

Espresso Crema, featuring a layer of syrup, one of espresso coffee and a topping of Milk Texture; Ice Cappuccino, made in the mixer from espresso, skimmed milk, sugar, ice and cocoa powder; Cappugiro, the “reverse” cappuccino with a coffee mousse resting on a bed of liquid milk: these are just some of the examples of the new products developed by the Lavazza team as part of this collection.

ÈSPESSO ÈSPESSO 2002 - Lavazza Team & Ferran Adrià



Èspesso was the first result of Lavazza's partnership with Ferran Adrià, a star of avant-garde haute cuisine. Èspesso is a solid espresso, obtained by placing espresso, gelatine and sugar in a coffee siphon. Spanish designer Toni Segarra created the upside down espresso cup especially for this product, to symbolise the first solid coffee in history. He also designed the perforated spoon, which has become a collector's item.

COOKIE CUP COOKIE CUP 2003 – Lavazza Team




From the partnership between designer Enrique Sardi, confectioner Lello Parisi and the Lavazza Team came the Cookie Cup, the edible cup/biscuit which can be eaten after having drunk the espresso it contains.
The pastry, thicker than in the traditional recipe, is modelled and baked in special moulds in the form of the Lavazza Segno espresso cup. The inside of the cookie is coated with a special sugar glaze so that the cup can withstand the high temperature of the coffee.

This recipe was inspired by the launch of the 2004 Lavazza calendar entitled “Pianeta Espresso” by Thierry Le Gouès. Delicious fragments of amaretti biscuits were used to decorate the authentic Italian espresso, to look like the surface of a planet dotted with craters.

COFFEESPHERE COFFEESPHERE 2004 - Lavazza Team & Ferran Adrià




A complex, sophisticated technique that gives a truly incredible result. Spherification, the technique developed by Ferran Adrià, is applied to coffee, to give an amazing effect: liquid coffee enveloped in a transparent membrane, which explodes on the palate to release its full aroma.

COFFEE CAVIAR COFFEE CAVIAR 2004 - Lavazza Team & Ferran Adrià




Coffee caviar
is another of the amazing products made with spherification, the same technique used for the Coffeesphere. Using a syringe, small drops of the coffee and alginate mixture is added to the diluted calcium chloride. The result is lots of little balls which create a myriad of tiny explosions on the palate. The effect is perhaps even more surprising.

CAPPUCCINO LIO CAPPUCCINO LIO 2005 - Lavazza Team & Ferran Adrià




Cappuccino Lio is a special biscuit that contains no flour or egg, solid yet creamy, light and crumbly.

The result is a unique texture, where the absence of moisture guarantees a taste explosion.

TANDEM & LE VOGLIE TANDEM & LE VOGLIE 2005 - Lavazza Team - Ferran Adrià




An idea by Ferran Adrià, of serving traditional products in the form of mousses, led to the idea of developing ready to use mousses in spray cans in order to add interest to classic coffee recipes. Elaborated by the team at the Training Center and industrialised by Cooperlat (one of Italy's leading dairy manufacturers), Tandem & Le Voglie were launched in three flavours: hazelnut, chocolate and whole milk. To serve the product with coffee or cappuccino, the Double Cup was specially developed and patented. It incorporates a partition to create two separate compartments.

Cremespresso is a reinterpretation of the traditional Genoese “panera”, a semifreddo based on cream and coffee invented about 150 years ago. More than a sorbet, it is a coffee smoothie, or a drinkable ice-cream. Its container is obviously inspired by the classic ice-cream cone.

Pasas is the Spanish name for raisins
. To make this coffee-flavoured trompe-l’oeil, a treat for the eyes as well as the palate, the product of reverse spherification (the process used to make the hot coffee egg) is left to dehydrate in granulated sugar. The result is coffee raisins, which look and feel like the real thing.
