The flag carrier for Lavazza Coffee and the only total coffee solutions provider in Sri Lanka, Colombo Coffee Company (CCC) recently opened doors to Sri Lanka’s first dedicated coffee store. The one-of-a-kind store located at Ward Place was declared open by Chairman of CCC Ajith Dias. Directors Lalin Dias and Hiran Embuldeniya were also present.
Speaking at the opening General Manager Lien Keerthisinghe noted, “For more than a decade the Colombo Coffee Company has become synonymous with all things coffee in Sri Lanka. We are the go-to solutions provider for international and local hotel chains, restaurant chains, homes and offices. As a complete solutions provider we do not only supply the world’s best coffee but also distribute latest technology coffee machines and accessories, and provide our coffee expertise to the industry. This store is a culmination of everything we do where clients can visit us and experience coffee first-hand”.
The latest store will stock coffee and coffee-based products from the world renowned coffee brands like Lavazza, Bonomi, and the latest addition of Toscana Ceylon grown, ground and brewed coffee. La-Cimbali, Nuova Simonelli, Gaggia, WMF, Fetco and Bunn coffee machines can also be ordered from the outlet. Furthermore, a range of barista accessories and café cleaning products will also be on sale at the outlet.
Further commenting Keerthisinghe added, “This outlet will also serve as a place where people can learn about coffee. Sri Lanka has a rich coffee history as much as one with tea and we hope to revive that especially by uplifting the local coffee farmer and giving them a platform to market their products. In a way this outlet will also serve as a sustainability platform for CCC to further enhance the coffee industry in Sri Lanka”.
