[Amazon.ca] $17.99 1000g Lavazza ¡Tierra! Organic Light Roast Beans

Price is up a buck to $17.99 now (you can do a Subscribe&Save to bring it back down but remember to cancel it later since they'll probably raise the price again)

We buy these for espresso based drinks- no, they're not as good as a local roaster but pretty decent, non-oily, light roast and more than 2 lbs of it! Usually, this goes in the $24-26 range and they don't carry it at Costco these days (only the Crema ones).

So are these espresso beans? Or is that just dependant on how they are roasted?

So for myself (and others I know), espressos are actually better tasting with lighter roasts (even Starbucks came out with their Blonde espresso). You can use them for different brew methods according to the bag (including espresso which would make sense since Lavazza is an Italian co.).

If you prefer the burnt taste, then these may not be for you.

"Tierra Organic: prepare with an espresso machine, a filter coffee machine or a French press."

There's no such thing as an "espresso bean". Nor an espresso roast. Espresso is a brewing process. Using the word for anything else is just bad marketing (I've even seen "chocolate-covered espresso beans", which is just a sad attempt to make it seem more luxurious). Espresso is commonly associated with a darker roast but it needn't be; the roast level is completely up to the drinker's taste. So buy whatever coffee you like and use it for espresso.

Bought a bag of these at Costco when they were on sale. I'm using them in an Espro french press.

Be advised: if your palate leans towards a robust roast of bean, these will yield a fairly thin tasting cup of coffee. I don't mind a more delicate tasting cup myself, but my office mate complains these "taste like water".

Im getting a bag to try. I do like light roasts as well as dark.
Dont forget, if you feel it really is too light theres always the option of creating your own blend with another darker roast. Ive had surprisingly good results on occasion.

Received my package today and it was compromised. The shipping packaging was fine, but the bag itself had a slit on the back, about 3cm long. Possibly a one-off but recommend you check it when you receive. I normally just shove stuff like this in my pantry, but "luckily" some beans poured out as I was handling the bag.

Talking to Amazon rn, presuming they'll refund me.

also with a lighter roast, you're going to taste more of the actual bean/varietal notes, and less of the roast notes. . .you'll have a greater chance of catching fruit/floral, etc.

. . .not to mention, generally higher caffeine with a lighter roast versus a darker roast of the same bean
