Emilio Lavazza, Italian Coffee Tycoon, Dead At 78

The Honorary President and Chairman of Italian coffee giant Lavazza passed away yesterday. Emilio Lavazza joins the likes of Ernesto Illy and Alfred Peet in that big coffee shop in the sky. From the BBC:

A very private man, Mr Lavazza gave only one interview during his time at the helm – to an Italian newspaper some 15 years ago – the spokesperson said.

Mr Lavazza’s grandfather Luigi founded the family business in 1895 and when his father Luigi died in 1971, Emilio was appointed chief executive. He then became president of the company in 1979 – a position he held until being made honorary president in 2008.

  1. Definitely believe that which you said. Your favorite justification seemed to be on the net the simplest
    thing to be aware of. I say to you, I certainly get irked while people think about
    worries that they just do not know about. You managed to
    hit the nail upon the top and defined out the whole thing without having side-effects , people could take a signal.

    Will likely be back to get more. Thanks
