i had the most charming, albeit completely hilarious, conversation with mister lavazza from milan this week (much more on this later). but seriously — lavazza sent me this tablet alarm clock and early tuesday morning the alarm went off and a handsome italian man appeared via video offering to make me coffee every morning. how could i refuse? so they sent me this sweet little keurig single cup coffee maker and a slew of lavazza coffee so i could try it out. i already drink lavazza coffee in my espresso maker, but i really like the idea of having one of these quick and easy lavazza k-cups ready to go before i hit the dog park each morning. especially in these rainy, chilly months!

In Italy, Buongiorno is more than just a word; it’s a spontaneous way of wishing someone a good day. It is a simple smile and a warm cup of coffee first thing in the morning and the Italian way of exchanging a sincere gesture. But, most importantly, it is the Italian greeting. now, if only they had sent mister lavazza from milan to san francisco to say boungiorno in person, and get that cup ready for me each morning, i’d really be set! buongiorno, indeed!

  1. My husband’s from Turin, where Lavazza originated. It was so cute to see the silhouette of the Mole Antonelliana at the beginning of the video (at least the one I watched). And Francesca Lavazza’s voiceover was so charming.

  2. Have to agree with Ann on the wastefulness of those plastic containers. We had one of these machines at work and soon switched as those little containers are extremely expensive. We are not that busy as a society that we can’t measure out coffee into a filter and boil some water to pour over it.
