    Lavazza coffee is wonderful but the different blends are, well, different. I really like the Caffe Espresso because of the heavier slightly bitter/strong but also slightly chocolaty-sweet taste and the aroma. I use a Mocha/stovetop espresso pot so that makes a different kind of brew too.

    Caffe espresso is 100% Arabica beans as is Oro. I find the latter a bit rougher/stronger. Then, the wise folks at Lavazza start blending in Robusto beans and for those of you that like super smooth, less bitter you need to try these… Crema e Gusto is at the farthest end of the spectrum – 70% Robusto 30% Arabica and dark roasted (usually they make a medium roast I think), super creamy, nice as Americano or a straight, milder espresso, me I don’t think it stands up as a cappuccino. Next in line is Crema e Aroma – 60% Robusto. I haven’t had this in years. Middle ground? That’s Rossa with its 30% Robusto and 70 Arabica…this might be my favorite as espresso.

    There’s a few other blends but they are newer and I haven’t tried them…

    Amazon should offer a taster pack!

    Happy espresso drinking!

    I’ve been buying Illy Medium Roast espresso and decided to try something new. Lavazza is the winner! I have been ordering it from Amazon for months now. The 4-pack is a great deal. Nice flavor, not too bold or bitter, even a little sweet? Perhaps I am not equipped to describe it as a coffee connoisseur, but I do know it makes my mornings a little better!

    Good coffee – not pregrounded for electric espresso machines, October 11, 2013

    This is good coffee. The problem is that it is advertised as pregrounded for electric espresso machines, and well, it isn’t. This grind of coffee is far too course for an electric espresso machine. The label says that it can be used with electric espresso machines, french press, drip coffee maker, and a stovetop espresso maker —– no grind of coffee is compatible with all of these methods. I realize most people who are pulling shots with an electric machine have grinders, but this is a warning to people who are buying this coffee for an electric machine, it’s simply not suitable for it, there won’t be enough extraction and the shots you pull won’t be good. For everyone else, french press, drip coffee maker, moka pot, etc. this is a fine coffee and I have no doubts you will enjoy it. I had to return this because I wanted to use this for an electric machine — Lavazza makes another kind of preground espresso called “In Blu” and this grind is almost perfect for making espresso (and made specifically for electric machines) so I would recommend that or the Illy lineup of preground espresso.
