IN 1895, when Luigi Lavazza purchased a little grocery store, Paissa Olivero, in the old commecial section of Torino (Northern Italy). The purchase was made for 26,000 Italian Lire, or about US$ 20. In those times such stores operated as both retail and production outlets. The coffee, sold among thousands of other products, was bought raw, and then roasted and blended according to very personal recipes depending on the cutomers' 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. The firm's expansion from retailing to wholesale trade (1910), the joining of Luigi's three sons Mario, Beppe and Pericle (during the First World War), and the progressive narrowing of the production range, marked the first steps of an irresistible commercial growth, which enabled the Firm to acquire a notable position at regional level. The little grocery store became in 1927 the modern Luigi Lavazza S.p.A. that, after the forced stop caused by the League of Nations' economic sanctions, by the prohibition on the importation of coffee, and by the outbreak of the Second World War, finally came to specialize in the production of coffee. The first Lavazza logo was then created and the annual production reached 1,000 tons. In 1956 Mario left Lavazza to his two brothers (their father, Luigi, had retired in 1935). Meanwhile, as the coffee market grew throughout Northern Italy, the building of a new plant (at Corso Novara, today the site of the Firm's Headquarters) became necessary. In the early sixties, and with the processing cycle now completely mechanical, Lavazza introduced the first vacuum-packed ground coffee suitable for long conservation. These enormously successful years led Lavazza to increase productions and open a new plant at Settimo Torinese. With distribution covering the entire nation, the product range was completely redone with new packaging techniques using the vacuum preservation of aluminium and plastic packing (notable cheaper than tins). In 1996, Lavazza's yearly production was well over 100,000 tons of roasted coffee, and the Firm's employees had grown to more than 1600. Lavazza's tradition of devoting special attention to the development of new techniques and products (see their clever and tremendously popular Espresso Point system), make the Company both uniquely dynamic and sensitive to the customer's requests. Luigi Lavazza S.p.A. is the undisputed market leader of espresso in Italy, with almost 45% of the total coffee market (and 75% of Italian families who buy Lavazza).

Learning Coffee market in Goa and In India

The coffee market in Goa has been growing due to the demand for Ready to Drink coffee and has become a part of an individuals daily consumption basket. Due to changing cultures, consumers are becoming aware of domestic and foreign brands which are boosting the consumption levels. According to the Indian Coffee Board, domestic coffee consumption is increasing 5 to 6 percent annually, partly due to expansion of the coffee caf culture and the spread of the coffee drinking habit throughout India, even into non-traditional coffee drinking regions in the north. Although tea is the main drink of choice in India, now hundreds of trendy westerninfluenced coffee bars have emerged across India. For coffee fans, India offers a few notable coffee bar chains. The significant growth in the number of coffee retail chains in India is due to the changing lifestyle patterns of Indian middle class families and an increase in their disposable income.

How to go about and whom to target

In order to stay competitive you need to spend the time understanding what your customer basic wants. Who is your potential customer and what do they like? What is your identity going to be? Or looking for more sophisticated customer with a high end approach.

Buying Behavior
For people who are more conceuse abut lifestyle In order to gain the competitive advantage, one of the most important components is to determine and then manipulate on factors influencing buying and consumption behaviour. It is widely recognize that consumers can be considered as the fuel of any

business venture. Not only that they are the ones who purchase the products of the firm, consumers may choose particular product (brand) not just because it provides the functional or performance benefits expected, but also because it can be used to express consumers personality, social status or affiliation (symbolic purposes) or to fulfill their internal psychological needs, such as the need for change or newness. As lavazza lb 1000 and lb 2300 is designed by Pininfarina which creates the royal image on other people. This machine suet this types of customer

Consumers adjust purchasing behavior based on their individual needs and interpersonal factors In restaurant and Caf: - Coffee demand in restaurants is very high and it may even increase during colder seasons. This demand can only be adequately met if the restaurant owner invests in coffee machines that can produce enough coffee at a quick enough speed. Secondly they want perfect coffee to serve they customer and fulfil they need. As we look at Goan restaurant they have mostly foreigners and Russian Customers and they mostly prefer strong espresso. On some levels, consumer choice can appear to be quite random. However, each decision that is made has some meaning behind it, even if that choice does not always appear to be rational. Purchase decisions depend on personal emotions, social situations, goals, and values. Prestige is another intangible need, and those concerned with status will pay for it. However, goods appealing to this type of need must be viewed as high-profile products that others will see in use. One benefit of targeting this type of market is that the demand curve for luxury products is typically the reverse of the standard; high-status products sell better with higher prices. Personality traits and characteristics are also important to
establish how consumers meet their needs.


Purchase decisions are not always made on the basis of an "attribute-by-attribute" comparison (attribute-based processing). Consumers also make decisions based on an overall evaluation of their impressions, intuition, and knowledge based on past experience, or attitude-based processing. Learned attitudes also influence these decisions When it comes time to actually make purchases, however, one person in the family often acts as an "information filter" for the family, depending on what type of purchase is being made and that person's expertise and interest. The information filter passes along information he or she considers most relevant when making a purchase decision, filtering out what is considered unimportant and regulating the flow of information For example, men are more often the family members who evaluate which tools to purchase, while children pass along what they consider to be seminal information about toys. At times, family members may take on additional roles such as an "influencer," contributing to the overall evaluation of goods being considered for purchase
