Frequently Asked Questions

My brewer is broken. Can you send someone out to service our machine?

  • C150s are not fixable, if they break as a whole, but replacement parts are available. C200s, C400s, C500s, and Baristas are all able to be serviced.
  • Tech service and repair is provided by the customer’s DISTRIBUTOR, not Lavazza Professional. We do not provide/guarantee any tech service. Our field techs train distributor’s techs, who then go out and service customers’ machines.
  • If there are additional questions, email customerservice@lavazzapro.com or us.techservice@lavazzapro.com

Are your products Kosher certified?

  • YES! All of our drinks are Kosher certified. The letters “KLBD” located on the back of all the FreshPacks indicate this certification. LBD = London Beth Din

  • We also have the current year Kosher Certifications available upon request.

Are there hazelnuts in the Hazelnut Coffee?

What’s in the coffee?

  • Most of are coffees are just 100% Roasted Whole Bean Coffee.

 

Are your Freshpacks recyclable?

  • Yes—and no. Our Freshpacks CANNOT be recycled through regular municipal recycling programs because, while some components of the pack are recyclable, others are not; however, we do have a program in place where the Freshpacks can be recycled and it is called Recycle Your Freshpacks.
  • To learn more about the program, customers can visit RecycleYourFreshpacks.com
  • To participate in the program, they would need to use a distributor who participates in the program, as not all distributors do. It does cost the distributors money to participate, but it provides a competitive edge over Keurig.

None of our brewer water system components are made from Polycarbonate.

    • Approved by Kath Veal 9/8/14

Is the coffee vegetarian?

Dear Customer,

Thank you for your inquiry on the vegetarian status of our flavored coffee products.  Per the information provided by our flavor supplier, the sugar used in their flavors undergoes charred bone filtration, a very common filtration process used in the sugar industry to filter out sugar impurities.  Although the charred bone is effectively removed from the sugar after filtration, it is Lavazza policy to consider sugar processed with charred bone as not suitable for vegetarians.

Are your coffees gluten free?

  • Approved response: “We do not add any gluten containing ingredients to any of our current products”
    • Essentially there’s no gluten in any of our ingredients, but we can’t guarantee that they weren’t in contact with gluten somewhere along the supply chain, which is why we can’t say “Gluten Free”

Is there corn byproduct in the flavored coffees (French Vanilla & Hazelnut)?

  • The flavor utilized in French Vanilla & Hazelnut coffees does contain maltodextrin, which is derived from corn.
