Lavazza ¡Tierra! Intenso is the sustainable development project aimed at combining product quality with improved living conditions for three small-scale coffee growing communities:
- Yanesha of Nagazu, Alto Churrumazu in Peru
- La Fortuna, Cusucu Park area in Honduras
- Villa Esperanza, Huila Valley in Colombia
This is achieved by providing them with modern coffee-growing equipment and the right instruments to cultivate and market coffee by means of environmentally friendly techniques.
To make ¡Tierra!, Lavazza works with Rainforest Alliance, an international non-governmental organization actively involved in promoting sustainable coffee. Lavazza ¡Tierra! contains 100% Rainforest Alliance certified sustainable coffee.

The whole beans version of ¡Tierra! is an excellent, 100% Arabica product made using the washed, green coffee exclusively from the above communities, grown at medium to high-altitudes and checked at every stage of production. It yields a creamy, medium-body espresso characterized by aromatic notes and a floral sweetness.
