    Isn't this the pre-ground/stale-in-a-can stuff that comes from Italy? If so, that's as familiar as I want to be with it.

    I just returned to work with an iced coffee from Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf. While in line, I picked up a few bags of whole bean coffee just to satisfy my curiosity about roast dates. By "picked up" I don't mean "purchased"...just reading while waiting. They don't have a roast date, instead they have a "manufactured on" date, and all the dates were from June and July. They also have an expiration date, which is six months after the manufactured on date. I'd like to say I'm not surprised, but I am. I've never bought whole bean coffee from them, but I've never ruled out the option...until now.

    Lavazza is factory made coffee on steroids. Huge in Europe, which, contrary to popular opinion, likes to drink harsh coffee. They grew up on instant and (especially here in Ireland) are just in the last few years starting to discover how good coffee can taste.

    What Peter said is about on target except the stale-in-the-can stuff is Illy and the vacuum-packed brick in the foil bag is Lavazza.

    Why you would want to drink it when there are so many other options, that were roasted within the last two weeks instead of last two years, I don't know.

    Lavazza is super popular at least in Italy (they even have lavazza vending machines in rome!) and makes some super strong coffee. If you don't get extra hair on your chest from it, it's because it burned it off.

    A bit strong for my taste, but then again I am not a big espresso-drinker

    Put Lavazza coffee beans in the coffee machine all the time. One of my favorites! Probably not fresh and not as good as buying from a local roaster, but consistently nice in flavor and easy to pick up at the local supermarket when doing the rest of my shopping! I do like it!
