Lavazza Caffe Crema

Lavazza Caffe CremaAnother Lavazza not often seen in the UK - this one was picked up in Austria. It's a tiny bit harsh - which we presume is due to the usual Lavazza Robusta bean contents - it doesn't mention anything about arabica on the packet of this one. That said - it still goes down pretty nicely. Lavazza say its a medium coffee for all day long drinking from a big cup - we don't really agree with that, unless it's just the way we make it here. For us it was a pretty potent brew that would probably kill your granny. It's not really sophisticated though - it's just coffee slapping you in the throat. So we like it. 8/10

Lavazza Club Coffee

Lavazza Club Coffee

This is the best Lavazza we've had - and it doesn't seem to be available in the UK. We picked it up in France at the Carrefour while stocking up on cheap Chateaux du Closet. It’s got the Illy style tin which makes a change from the usual Euro brick packaging that normally just ends up all over the floor – although it doesn’t have the nitrogen whoosh as you open it. This is ground super fine - and we mean super fine. If you felt the need you could chop this stuff up on the back of the staff toilet cistern and just snort it down. The fine-ness means you need a bit of care when making it – the spoons will pile the coffee high on them and you’ll end up with a brew that’ll rip you’re tongue out. But treated carefully, this is a great brew. It smells divine – everyone wanted one – and they got one – and loved it. It's a 9/10.
