mjackson ♦ We get this product in all the time as it is one of our most popular coffees. It should be good for at least a year from the time of purchase as the packaging is very good at keeping coffee usable for a long time.

Are these beans delivered freshly roasted? Is there a roast date on the bag?

A A Kathryn,
We are constantly getting shipments in from Lavazza, so the beans are always rather fresh. They are not freshly roasted like they would be from a local roaster. On the Lavazza bags, there is no roast date, but there is a "best by" date. Being in sealed bags, the beans are still good for a while after that point too.

mjackson ♦ I really like the Pienorama and also the Gran Riserva. I think you may notice as the price goes up on the Lavazza Coffees they get smoother. You may like them more all depending on your tastes and what you drink. If you like straight espresso you may want to stick with Gran Riserva. If you like milk based drinks our most popular seller is the Super Crema. I would try all of them as they are all good and see what you like best.

I was just wondering that blend i would get that might be close to starbucks caramel machiato. My wife loves that and so i want to try and get as close as i can to that flavor. I know that i cant get it just like it but if i could get close that would be great. Thanks for any input you can give me!!

mjackson ♦ Butch,
The coffee is a small part of that drink. It really is made with Caramel sauce - http://www.wholelattelove.com/Ghirardelli/ghir_sauce.cfm and vanilla syrup. - http://www.wholelattelove.com/Monin/monin_750ml.cfm. As far as the coffee goes a stronger tasting coffee like Lavazza super crema would be a part of the recipe but actually the other ingredients will give her the taste you are looking for.

I really like a mild coffee flavor with no bitter taste. Which Lavazza coffee should I buy. I have JURA Capresso Coffee machine. Ive bought the Top Class bean in the past and wonder if I chose the best one for me.

Zack Smith Susan, Lavazza makes some great coffee. It is hard to choose just one because they offer so many great blends. The majority of the Lavazza coffee is mild. Top class is a good choice i would also suggest you try the Super Crema or Pienaroma.

I'm looking for a different espresso to try. I drink milk based espresso drinks using little milk. I'm a fan of Zoka Paladino, Intelligentsia Black Cat and Stumptown Hairbender. I'm wondering what Lavazza would have a flavor similar to those.

What do I like? I coffee with enough body to carry through the milk, low on the brightness, full mouth smoothness typical of Indonesian, and a great smooth finish. Any suggestions?

Thank you!

TechMilanoItalia Larry, our in-house bean expert recommends either the Vivace Espresso Vita or the Whole Latte Love Buzzopolis for a similar flavor profile to the varieties you mentioned. Happy brewing! =)

Could you please recommend some whole bean coffees? We have the Gaggia Classic and enjoy a full-bodied espresso with crema. We only drink espresso. Thank you!

mjackson ♦ Debra,

There are lots of great espresso on our website. I would recommend some and you can try them but ultimately the ones you like most will be up to what your own personal tastes are. The grinder is truly an important part in how your espresso will taste.You can get crema with any of our espresso when you have the right grinder, technique and you certainly have the machine to do it with.

I really like the Lavazza they are complete and easy to work with.I really like the Malabar gold as it is complex and makes a great crema easily. You may want to try Espreso Vivace as it is considered to be one of the best created by a roasting artist some would say. I personally like our Buzzopolis as it has a great amount of character and body. The important thing is to try many as you will find each different and will settle on the one you like best
