Another award for Bottura in this 17th edition. One year later, Osteria Francescana remains the finest restaurant in Europe, and number two in the global rankings.
Lavazza is very proud to sponsor The World’s 50 Best Restaurants Highest Climber Award, the prize bestowed on the restaurant that has moved up the greatest number of places compared to the previous year. The Maido restaurant, in Lima, won the 2016 edition, whereas this year’s award went to Blue Hill run by Dan Barber, the New York chef who brings the principles of agriculture straight to the table.
There was another big star in Melbourne: Kafa, the premium 100% Arabica coffee grown solely in uncontaminated and naturally fertile soils.
Lavazza also offered guests at the event two of the Lavazza’s Training Center top creations: Coffeetail No. 50, a cold-brewed coffee cocktail served in a glass jar, and Passion>Me, a unique combination of cold-brew coffee and tropical fruit created by Ferran Adrià.
The World’s 50 Best Restaurants Award 2017 is yet another milestone reached by Lavazza in its journey through the haute cuisine.
Lavazza was the first Italian company to work with international chefs. This important project began in 2001 with Ferran Adrià and has continued with other big Italian names such as Massimo Bottura and Carlo Cracco.
During this long journey, coffee has become an essential part of the dining experience, due in part to increasingly refined blends and inventions such as Adrià’s èspesso, the first solid coffee in history, Coffee Lens invented by Cracco, and the e-Spoon and e-Cup created by Davide Oldani.
