    It has Robusta beans mixed in, so I guess it's good for crema, maybe a little bitter. Never tried any though.

    Wow, we've come a long way since this post! We buy locally roasted beans and our coffee has become very popular! It says something when customers ask my husband what he suggest!

    I once had both some Illy and Lavazza stuff which I tried in a Brika. Ugh- threw both away. My worst ever home roast would be lots better.

    Bottom line is if you don't have a fresh roast AND grind your own you won't drink decent coffee unless you're in the company of a barista with a good roast who can do it for you.

    It has been a long time since I drank Lavazza - see earlier post in this thread - probably about 6 years. We're moving house and forgot to bring coffee to the new one - you know how it is, you're moving and some stuff is there and some stuff is here and when you're there you need what's at the other place and vise-versa. That was a sin we paid dearly for because we decided to sleep at the new place (it's over an hour drive between the two houses so it didn't make sense to drive back just to get coffee). We got a few groceries near home and my son bought a brick of Lavazza. I tried making it three different ways and each time it was bad. Way too much Robusta, and just bad (I don't mind Robusta, our Buzz Bomb blend has a fair amount in it but it tastes nothing like Lavazza). A harsh taste that just lingers and lingers in your mouth. I probably would have been better off with the headache I sometimes get if I don't get my morning cup. I certainly would have been better off making the drive back to the old house.
