27
Found 28th May 2015
Just spotted this in my local Lidl, works £1 per 100g
There is two varieties: Crema e Aroma (Darkk roast) and Espresso Cremoso (Medium roast)

Please share your opinion if someone already tried before
I am espresso man so I wonder which one would give me more Crema (no need to involve coffee making equipment discussions here please)

Crema e Aroma gives a very good crema, it's actually designed to. It's nice in a full taste but inoffensive way and I certainly wouldn't call it dark roast. Many snobs sneer at it because it's a blend not pure Arabica but I believe taste is what actually matters!

I am sure that some of the bean to cup makers recommend a robusta/arabica mix for best results.
I must admit that choosing coffee is a minefield, lots of variables.
ps Hot deal op.

Normal price for lavazza.. Adds have been selling 2x 250g bags for a fiver for over 12m so same price

No deal here I'm afraid

They don't sell these varieties but that is where I get mine from, usually the Rossa, as the smaller bags are more convenient.

The Espresso Cremosa isn't listed on their UK website so whether it's just the Euro name for Cafe Espresso, which Asda do have, or not I don't know. Drinking that at the moment and it's 'alright'.

AFAIK rossa is the lowest in the range, these are beans do asda have lavazza beans at this price?

Good price, but do beware that beans don't last forever, so a massive multipack might not be for you.

Hadn't heard that before but I am using a super auto and have found them to be good on the whole.

Certainly is a minefield and I've tried so many I've forgotten what half of them taste like, only one that I would definitely never touch again was that Asda 100% Arabica own brand one that people went mad for a few months back, had to make it so strong to get any flavour out of it it was more expensive per cup than a nice one.

Rossa is by their own claims their most popular and is one of the original blends that made their name. It's stocked by more places for that reason which in turn means you can buy it for less.

It's beans we're talking about and the Asda price for them comes up any time beans are posted, they include a load of the Taylor's beans in the two for a fiver deal too but from experience stock of them is a bit erratic. They always have the longest use by dates I've come across which seems to average about 18-20 months.

I also find that the grind is so important, I try to get mine so fine that it is very slow through the machine, this gives me the flavour extraction I like. Unfortunately, I sometimes have to readjust even on the same hopperful.
PS. Sorry OP, straying into coffee discussion!

Just keep them in the freezer and they'll be fine. I think 9.99 for Crema e Aroma is pretty good. Work well in my Gaggia BTC machine. Good spot by OP. Heat added.

Thanks for posting OP. I'll need to pop in to see if my local has them.

I imagine, like a lot of people, I've tried countless different brands of coffee. Lavazza and the Starbucks espresso from Costco (Kirkland) are never oily and always give a good grind and great crema.

If you are an espresso man, just go for the dark roast. Lavazza medium roast is never strong enough imo and it's a chore getting through 1kg of medium roast coffee

Can anyone recommend a coffee bean grinder?

In the news yesterday they said more than 4 espressos a day is bad for your health, especially for children and pregnant women.

If you want a good crema, you need to buy fresh. Not mass produced stuff that is already weeks old.. For quality you will have to pay more but I guess it depends on what your looking for..
have a look at rave coffee.. Their Italian job is amazing.. Fresh.. And quality.. And is actually cheaper at £9.50 a kilo !!

Agree always go for fresh. Give Sumatra mocha blend from happydonkey.co.uk a try if you are serious about espresso. Never tried a coffee with such a pleasantly long after taste

Costco have various 1kg packs for under a tenner. Pretty sure the last time I got lavazza they were £6.50/kg.

Ditto and spend over £25 at rave and get free postage

I totally agree. This is so stale it's an insult to your tastebuds. Do yourself a favour and try some good stuff for £1 delivered and compare:

How this helps :

As for grinder always go for burr grinder, never for blade ones as they would simply destroy your coffee. If you want the grinder for filter coffee or French press then the deloghi from John Lewis would do just the job, otherwise if it is for machine espresso then I would highly recommend the iberital mc2 as a bare minimum starter as anything less would give you poor extractions.

Last time I bought this, I carried it under my arm and was carrying the full bag of shopping. The Lavazza bag burst and coffee beens shot all over the carpark! so cold from me.

I like your style - next time try the 6pint milk bottle, the wow factor should be much better.. X)

Got a bag of these to compare with what I have already from Rave and of all places Ikea. These Lavazza are not bad at all but the rave stuff is better but not by much. The Ikea ones are actually nicer than the lavazza and on par with what I have from rave and are only £1.95 for 250g.
