Lavazza and La Tasca creating a stir with new partnership

¡Hola tapas lovers!

We are pleased to announce a new partnership that will see us introducing Lavazza’s innovative professional Capsule espresso systems “Lavazza BLUE’, throughout our restaurants. The new partnership will ensure that we are serving the highest quality coffee to our valued customers on a consistent basis.


For over 30 years Lavazza has devoted itself to gastronomy through its work with internationally renowned chefs, like the figure of Catalan cooking, Ferran Adrià. Considered the forerunner of beautiful Spanish cooking throughout the world, the chef from the famous El Bulli has completely overturned the rules of dining over the last twenty years. Lavazza has worked with Ferran Adrià for decades, producing innovative creations that combine two infamous European cuisines – Italian and Spanish.

Lavazza is committed to coffee research and experimentation and its dedication to the dining industry has led to new ways of understanding espresso in many countries. Lavazza’s association with Spanish dining today is further cemented through its partnership with La Tasca, which prides itself on its quality authentic food, provenance and creating a real Spanish revolution in dining.

The Lavazza BLUE machines that La Tasca is adopting are an adaptation of the traditional espresso machine, but instead of using a grinder and beans, the system uses a Lavazza coffee capsule to make each espresso, therefore guaranteeing the perfect coffee each time for customers.

Our CEO, Simon Wilkinson, commented:

“We have made the decision to replace all of our current espresso equipment with the new Lavazza system, which sees La Tasca being the first major high street casual dining operator to switch to this system, yet again staying one step ahead of the competition. We are thrilled to be entering into this new relationship – and, as revolution is at the forefront of everything we do, looking for innovative ways to develop our guest offering continues to inform our decision making.”

La Tasca love! xx
