Lavazza Crema e Gusto Coffee
The package looked good - glitzy, but oozing tasteful Italian style. It also claims "crema" - which we now know is the fine creamy foam that sits on top of your coffee. So I was quite excited about this. BUT - jeez - this stuff is the cheapest tasting muck you we've had in a while. It's no wonder - when you read the back of the pack it says 70% Robusta beans. Now, us judges have now learnt that Robusta = Bollocks, and this coffee is testament to that. You may as well go down your local petrol station, pick up 5Kg of BBQ charcoal and suck on the biggest lump. The only way we could drink this was to weaken it down a spoon and add a bit more sugar. That made it just about drinkable. Just. (4/10)
"For those looking for an intensely pleasurable and strongly flavoured break at any time of the day (the right time), Lavazza Crema E Gusto is a blend with a distinctive character made of fine Arabica and Robusta coffees. A chocolaty blend with a distinct full bodied taste."
