If I had a cofee blend such as Lavazza''s or Illy''s how would I find out exactly what beans have been used and the quantaties used? I''m asking this question because i prefer certain charactaristics of Lavazza''s blend, whilst I prefer certain aspects of Illy''s, and I''d be tempted to add a small amount of Java into the blend.

A professional coffee 'cupper' can taste espresso and identify its likely ingredients. These services are very specialized, and subsequently not cheap.

As Andrew stated, these services are very expensive. You may want to write down all of the characteristics of Illy's and Lavazza's that you like. Contact several roasters in your area and explain what you are looking for, and cup different blended espressos. My guess is, you may not find an exact replica of Illy's or Lavazza's but maybe one that is better. I would think that Illy's and Lavazza's can't compete with fresh roasted beans!!!

Good luck finding better espresso!!!
