Lavazza Calendar 2009

What better way to show your love and appreciation for Lavazza coffee beans than by displaying a Lavazza calendar in your home? These highly stylish wall calendars have become an annual tradition for the Lavazza company and its loyal consumers since the first calendar was printed in 1993. The main goal of the Lavazza calendar is to highlight the classiness of Italian culture as well as the sophistication of gourmet Italian coffee from one of the country’s most famous brands, Lavazza.

Though Lavazza calendars are produced and sold by the coffee giant, there is just as much, if not more, emphasis placed on the stunning photography and gorgeous models who make these calendars the iconic art form that they are. While some of the photographs throughout the years highlight Lavazza espresso and coffee drinking, other shots hardly show any indication of coffee paraphernalia in them, and feature models in provocative poses or situations. This is why these calendars are a showcase of not only Lavazza coffee but also Italy’s high-class culture. The first several years of Lavazza’s yearly calendars were shot in striking black and white photography. The past several years have comprised of color photography.

Some of the world’s most famous and most talented photographers have had the privilege of shooting the Lavazza calendar. Past photographers have included David LaChapelle and Findlay MacKay. The 2009 Lavazza calendar was photographed by world-renowned photographer Annie Leibovitz. Most of the photos in the 2009 calendar feature the models in sophisticated situations holding a porcelain coffee cup with the Lavazza logo emblazoned on it. One of the unique shots is of a model wearing a mask in the shape of a white coffee cup. Elettra Rossellini Wiedeman, daughter of actress Isabella Rossellini, modeled for the 2009 Lavazza calendar.

If you did not purchase a Lavazza calendar for the year 2009, chances are good that next year, the coffee company’s calendar will be just as classy and intriguing as this year’s was.
