That's a very good price with S&S and this one is one of my favourites, medium roast with lots of crema but I'll wait for a Costco sale ($3 off) and pick up a couple in store.

I usually buy this at Costco but I haven't been seen them for the last 4 weeks, so I have ordered up 5!

This is better than Rosa, I have the Rosa, but it wasn’t the bean version and I can’t stand the cheap taste. This for the fact I know tastes good and I love to grind my own beans to get that smell in the morning when I do my Americano or espresso or eXpresso as some say Face With Tears Of Joy

Anyone use these with regular filter machine or is it mostly for espresso?

I grind these beans using a Burr Grinder and make the coffee in either a French Press or Percolator. I expect that a filter machine would be just fine.

I grind this for French Press and I find the taste heavier than Rossa. Rossa gets 'old' quick, after a few mornings with it you want something else.

I put a little less for French Press or a little more water.

Not a crazy deal or a crazy amazing coffee. Coffee beans I aim for $10 a kilo...unless it's kicking horse.

Kicking Horse has been owned by Lavazza since 2017 (link).

This is my normal go to - great taste and not too oily for the super automatic espresso machine. I have a backlog at the moment with all the coffee deals lately but it's good to know that Amazon's price is competitive with Costco's non-sale price.

That usually goes on sale for $10-12 a pound
I have an automatic espresso machines....one of the breville machines.

Also any suggestions for beans that has a ‘roasted on’ date?
Wouldn’t mind trying that to see if there really is a difference.

Why is it ok to use coffee beans meant for espresso machines in a regular coffee maker/french press? Don't we want to use the added pressure of the espresso machines to draw out the maximum flavour/taste? Coffee purists/enthusiasts want to chime in?

Good question! So, it's easiest to think of espresso as being just another method of preparing coffee. So you could use dark roast beans, medium roast beans, hell, you could use some McCafe beans, and make them into an espresso.

It does have the defining characteristic of being very finely ground, so you'll hear a grind of coffee referred to as espresso, and similarly people tend to associate espresso with darker roasts, so a lot of the time "espresso roast" will mean a dark roast coffee.

But at the end of the day, coffee beans are coffee beans. Now, to get really inside-baseball about it, espresso blends will sometimes include some robusta with the arabica beans to give another flavour dimension, and you typically wouldn't want to do robusta as a brewed coffee, but that's more 201 stuff.

TL;DR: espresso is a method of preparing coffee.
