Lavazza and SSP to open first Nordic Lavazza Espression Café
Following international success at several locations, Lavazza will launch the Espression Café concept in Sweden, marking the brand’s first appearance in a Nordic country.
The contemporary cafe and restaurant will open in partnership with SSP. The café will open at Stockholm Arlanda airport’s Terminal 2 as part of a major refurbishment of the terminal. The two-story café and restaurant will serve a range of Italian foods and drinks, each of which has been chosen exclusively for the Espression concept. Coffees are made with Tierra, a blend of 100% Arabica beans certified by the Rainforest Alliance ™.
The walls of the 130-seat outlet feature photography from some of the world’s best-known photographers, including Annie Leibovitz, Mark Seliger and Ellen von Unwerth, selected from the photographic calendars published by Lavazza over the past 20 years.
“With our passion for design, and supported by one of the world’s most comprehensive barista training programmes, we can offer that little bit extra when it comes to taste, service and atmosphere,” said Robert Ameln, CEO of Lavazza Nordic.
Staff operating at the unit will be trained at the Lavazza Training Centres in Turin and Stockholm. The new outlet was designed by Lorenzo Marini and Crea International.
