If pushed then you could probably name two. Lavazza and illy. Lavazza is one of the world’s biggest producers of coffee and have been refining their craft for over 125 years.
Anyone that has been making anything for 125 years and it’s a worldwide bestseller would suggest that they know what they are doing.
The bottom line is that Lavazza does good coffee that is really good value for money and works well for everyday drinking.
Most people don’t realise that coffee is a very specialist product and pricing can vary dramatically depending on many factors.
The reason that you get such good value for money with Lavazza coffee is because of the sheer scale of the production.
Lavazza only do coffee and they turnover in excess of 1 billion Euro’s a year in coffee sales. That’s an awful lot of coffee and they pass the savings of bulk production onto the customer to ensure you get the best value for money possible.
Italy is widely recognised as the home of coffee and Lavazza is the best selling coffee in Italy so that in itself tells you something about how highly respected this brand of coffee is.
This is a 1kg bag of coffee beans which takes away the hassle of buying the 250g bags in the supermarket and will also represent a saving over buying 4 individually.
If you drink a lot of coffee then buying in bulk it’s a bit of a no brainer as its one less thing to think about and it costs less as well.
Once opened, to maintain maximum freshness, keep the bag closed and in a cool dry place. Some suggest keeping them in the fridge but if the moisture gets to the beans then this can adversely affect the coffee beans so a cupboard is absolutely fine as long as it does not get too hot.
Buying fresh coffee beans is best as flavour starts to deteriorate as soon as the bean is ground.
Grind the beans just before brewing and adjust the grind fineness according to the type of coffee machine that you have. Very fine is best for Espresso and most coarse for a Cafetiere.
You will notice that coffee beans range in colour from a light brown to a very deep almost black brown. The longer coffee beans are roasted the darker in colour they become and more intense the flavour.
The most popular varieties of coffee beans are Arabica and Robusta. Sometimes these varieties are mixed or blended together to create a unique taste.
The Lavazza Caffe Espresso beans are 100% Arabica and are classified by Lavazza as a medium roast.
Quite a small bean compared to others, it is medium brown in colour.
A smooth and aromatic coffee, you will experience a scent of floral notes with a hint of fruit.
It produces a lovely golden crema which is both delicate and inviting.
Rated with an intensity level of 5 out of 10 they are definitely stronger in flavour than the Qualita Rossa beans from Lavazza so if you enjoy a coffee which is medium / strong in flavour then these are well worth a try.
This is a full flavoured and full body coffee that can be enjoyed at any time of the day.
This coffee will work well no matter the type of coffee machine that you are using. Whether you have a pump espresso machine, a bean to cup coffee machine or a filter coffee machine you will be able to enjoy the rich and full flavour of Lavazza Caffe Espresso.
You can certainly pay more for specialist coffee but at this price you get really good value for money from one of the worlds premium coffee producers.
