We are proud to be Gunners! Lavazza is an Arsenal FC sponsor and partner, and we love working together because we share the same values and passion for excellence in everything we do.
Lavazza’s commitment to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals and our joint passion to get involved in the local community and drive positive change, have expanded our partnership beyond the football pitch and onto the streets surrounding the Emirates Stadium.
Together we have initiated the ongoing A Cup of Learning programme, working with the Arsenal Foundation to recruit and train young people to become qualified baristas and start their careers in the world of coffee.
This also motivated us with Arsenal to create a permanent source of inspiration and motivation in the community, just opposite the Emirates Stadium, on the walls of our host and partner in driving change, London Metropolitan University. Our Learn to Dream mural is meant to be a constant manifesto for all locals, Arsenal fans and London Met students.
You’ll hear us shout Come On You Gunners! alongside millions of other fans around the world every time the boys are on pitch.
We are proud to support and work with these exceptional athletes and we share the joy of watching them play at home on The Fortress with our ongoing tickets giveaway.
Lavazza’s commitment to Gender Equality was the perfect foundation for our collaboration with Arsenal’s Women team. Together we created a mini-series celebrating women in sport, amplifying the voice of the sisterhood and inspiring a new generation of women to persist, overcome all challenges and turn their dreams into reality.
We have partnered with Arsenal FC and the Arsenal Foundation to provide barista training for young people in the North London area and help them into employment in the world of coffee.
We’re excited to welcome the new recruits to our Training Centre, our London Flagship Store, as well as to the Emirates Stadium for unique opportunities to learn from our talented team of trainers and to get behind the scenes.
Participants are thought all the fundamental skills needed to become a barista: from the perfect way to steam milk to creating latte art. We are proud to see the praise for our expert colleagues from previous participants:
“I love Lily as a teacher. She’s so helpful and always keeps you with a smile on your face.”
Everything starts with a dream and together with our partner Arsenal and our host London Metropolitan University, we want to encourage and inspire the local community, the fans and the students, we want to leave a permanent tangible manifesto and call to arms, just opposite Emirates Stadium.
With a London Met student passionate about art and design, and a Cup of Learning alumni, now studying to become a football coach, as well as an expanded digital gallery of more inspiring stories, we want to show that there is no small or big dream and everyone’s opportunities are endless, regardless of any external factors, regardless of gender, age, background and so on.
Together we can all Learn to Dream!
