Compagnie Coloniale is the oldest French tea company, founded in 1848 at avenue de l’Opera in Paris, France. They have been selecting teas from the greatest plantations around the world
and created blends that are highly sought after by top tea salons and establishments.
The leaves go through a steam-flavouring process where they are moisturized with hot steam in stainless steel vats. This makes the aroma stick to the leaves during the drying process along with fruits, spices, and flowers sourced around the world for the different varieties. The stylish silk like tea bags also allow the leaves to unveil during infusion, which brings wonderful flavours from the nose to the mouth. The iconic tea boxes and packaging process are done in its own factory in France, which emulates its own Made in France branding.
Lavazza’s origins go back to 1895, when Luigi Lavazza purchased a little grocery store in Paissa Olivero, Italy. The coffee, sold among thousands of other products, was bought raw, and then roasted and blended according to very personal recipes depending on the customers' requests. This activity soon attracted the interest of Luigi Lavazza, who had already demonstrated considerable knowledge and skills in the processing of blends, including both the quantities of the ingredients and the degree of roasting.
Branded as “Italy’s Favourite Coffee”, Lavazza imports coffee from all around the world with 17 billion cups of coffee served and counting.
