My wife and I literally stock up on at least 20 of Lavazza Qualita Rossa 1KG whole bean bags every year when they go on sale. We cannot go back to any other coffee/espresso now because of how much we've taken to this one.djredhat wrote: ↑Oct 18th, 2017 10:41 pmDunkin sells "coffee". The logo they have on their coffee cups is (or was) "America runs on dunkin".
What I am saying is that Lavazza is as popular in Italy as is Dunknin in US and TimH in Canada. The overwhelming majority of the cafeterias and bars serve Lavazza espresso. And when it comes to espresso, nobody knows better than the Italians (fyi, espresso is Italian word).
Again, I am not saying that Lavazza is the best brand, but can't beat the price/quality ratio, and is the win-win for the 99% of espresso drinkers.
I've not tried the Oro one yet because I actually like the more mellow blend of Robusta and Arabica better. I might pick up a bag or two though just to try!
