336663336663B005GX8MMOA3JM41IO71UTGOAntonella1251343347200NOW, THIS IS REAL ITALIAN COFFEEI drink this coffee daily and I love it!
I am Italian and I know Lavazza very well, that's the only coffee my family and I drink. If you are expecting a weak taste like the normal american coffee, do not buy this kind.
The flavor is strong, just like coffee should be.
I would raccomand to make it with of those italian coffee machines like Bialetti.
336664336664B005GX8MMOAU88HPYW5PZJDGun_Will_Travel "gun_will_travel"1251327622400Outstanding coffeeWe originally purchased the Lavazza Crema y Gusto coffee pack when it went on sale, but I am re-ordering at full price because of the taste.

Not sure if it's the blend or the roast, but it's a superior coffee by every measure. Flavor is full and robust, but not at all bitter. It's hard to describe it's smoothness without hyperbole, but try it once and you'll find yourself at a loss for words also. If you are used to the strength of a French press but want the silky smoothness of a breakfast blend, this coffee is for you.

Vacuum packed into foil bricks for freshness. Do yourself, your spouse, and your office mates a huge favor and give it a try - and be prepared to start writing your own five star review.
336665336665B005GX8MMOAY9ZNSB6YXETSladycj1251326844800Love the flavorThis is a great product at a great price. Works very well in our espresso machine. We both have a double shot latte every morning. Order this on a recurring basis so we never run out.
336666336666B005GX8MMOA3NYOQSGWZ0XW2mary ann vitale1251326672000Lavazza Crema e Gusto CoffeeLavazza crema e gusto is the best coffee. When you sip it, you can really tell that it has the true flavor of a good coffee. I have it used for at least 20 years. My day is not the same, if I do not use my Lavazza Crema e Gusto Coffee. I can taste the difference between this coffee and the quality of other coffees. It has become our ritual for my husband and I to have an "Espressiata" as he calls it before he goes to work. This coffee makes my day. Mary Ann Vitale
336667336667B005GX8MMOA23P5BO1UGNIRRbunnybutt1251326412800fancy coffee shop taste and smellone day recently, i purchased this crema e gusto lavazza when it was on sale, because i know my friend uses lavazza in his espresso-maker, and i thought i'd break out the moka maker again. well. holy cow. i had forgotten what good coffee tasted like, based on my steady kcup habit. i can barely taste my keurig kcups now, which seem fairly bland, or too sharp, or too...something else wrong in comparison. i'll still use my keurig due to the convenience, and perhaps i'll try using lavazza in my keurig as another review mentioned. But, i think you cannot go wrong with a stove top moka of this stuff. it is not bitter, it is not sour, it has no off notes-- just extremely rich and heady, a good hefty body and smoothness that can't be beat. the outrageously excellent aroma permeates the house like a great coffee shop you might step into.

i read some of the bad reviews, and i can't understand the negative comments, just as they can't understand the good reviews--taste is individual i guess! But, i LOVE this coffee! it's extremely good, and i will even drink it late in the evening despite the caffeine, due to the wonderful flavor. crazily, i find myself looking forward to a quiet weekend morning to indulge, just like you might see on some goofy ad where a woman with closed eyes is smiling in dreamy wonder while sniffing a cup. try this coffee- maybe you'll be lucky to be in the majority for whom this rings all the bells.

update: i tried the Lavazza in the Keurig, and it just does not do it justice in comparison to the stove-top moka method. but, it still tastes better than regular k-cups.

update 2: i tried this in the Aeropress (french drip type) machine that had over 1000 great reviews here on Amazon, and i have to say, this combo will be my only go-to coffee from now on. the Aeropress, in addition to being easier to use than stove top, seems to make a less burnt flavored and more creamy brew. this, combined with condensed sweetened milk (like the Vietnam-french drip type)is heavenly. i'm buying a second Aeropress to have this combo at home in addition to the office.
336668336668B005GX8MMOAHSDBBRU5A26Elvin1251319155200Excellent!Works well with my Espresso machine. Tastes great. No other retailer can beat this price. Will definitely recommend this product.
336669336669B005GX8MMOAUFYQYIYOUNQNMojoman1251318896000My Secret BlendThis is pretty powerful coffee so I mix one brick with one pound of Dunkin' Donuts coffee. The combo of this potent Lavazza brew with the more bland DD joe is Dy-No-Mite!
336670336670B005GX8MMOAHO9PX4UE0LY3Dr. Dushyant Chauhan "dushyantx"1251317427200BestI ordered after reading all the reviews here.First time I made, I was hooked.Now its been 2 years.

You need the right tools/steps to get the perfect taste though.

1.Use a Bialetti espresso maker,if you can.
2.Don't stuff the filter all the way up,if you are making one cup only.
3.If you like milk with it, I suggest shaking the milk in a bottle, till it becomes frothy(you can use a milk frother as well,but just more cleaning etc.) and then add it on top, the flavour is completely different as compared to just pouring the milk in.
4.Enjoy.
336671336671B005GX8MMOA3TPGQ1QV2U85GA. Hayse "Book Maven"1251316131200Delicious!I love this espresso! I never thought I would say it, but I think I like it more than Starbucks! If you haven't given it a shot yet, do. You won't be disappointed.
336672336672B005GX8MMOADUKAEW8B8JYTKara C. Folmer "karaluvs books"1251302048000excellent coffeeThis coffee is strong without being bitter or acidic. It has a smooth taste with some lovely fruity afternotes. I would purchase this again. Usually I prefer to grind my own. But this vacuum packed coffee was very fresh. I love this Lavazza much better than Starbucks and Seattles best.
336673336673B005GX8MMOA1DM7QQFK8EKNWHoundMama1251294444800Happily Addicting!I purchased this to go make with my Bialetti Espresso pot. It is so smooth and rich, holds up extremely well to steamed milk. Much better than the espressos found in supermarkets.Bialetti Cappuccino and Latte Set
336674336674B005GX8MMOACUGYK1I1N3N0Amazing Grace1251281744000GREAT TASTING COFFEE!!!I bought this coffee for my Bialetti Cappuccino and Latte Set which are equally Great!!! I have this coffee coming every 3 months which saves a few dollars on the price. The coffee is Delicious!!!
336675336675B005GX8MMOA3PI8JJ2E4VT5ETiberius1251275004800wonderful coffee, the best, easy on the stomachIt is not have a bitter taste as a few have suggested. I always use a melitta cup for making any espresso coffee and this one is just delicious. I checked my ph strip and it does not register as acid. It doesn't bother my stomach at all and I am super sensitive to anything acid. American coffee I have a hard time tolerating; the Italian and Kenya coffees that are dark roast espresso are thought by some people via their processing techniques and quality to be alkaline. It makes the American coffee look like junk for how the body responds and the taste. Once you have had this coffee you won't want American coffee anymore.

In case anyone is wondering what a melitta cup is, it is a cone made from plastic or ceramic (mine is ceramic) and it has a hole at the bottom. I adjust the coffee filter to fit it and then put the espress coffee in it and then pour my hot water from the tea kettle into it. I add a little nut milk into the coffee and I am ready to enjoy a wonderful taste. It beats dealing with a coffee maker any day. Each person in the family can have their own melitta cup as it is so quick to do.
336676336676B005GX8MMOA45UL4VZ5LNTRRobert1251269734400The feedback speaks for itselfThis is probably some of the best coffee I've had, even though it's pre-ground that doesn't seem to matter. Keep it up guys !!
336677336677B005GX8MMOA4BKNM6UI8BHGNatalie Wood "VAM"1251265414400Excellent coffeeNo bitter test even though it makes a strong cup of coffee. Rich and Creamy. will buy again as soon as Amazon start selling it not through the third party.
336678336678B005GX8MMOASIVO0K2M2WMUMartin Bergel1251262995200Best Espresso By Far!!!The tastiest espresso is yielded from Crema E Gusto. A nice chocolate undertone. Try it, you won't be disappointed!
336679336679B005GX8MMOA1HCIB3TCT1F2IAudrey L. Mcdonald "Audrey"1251250121600Smooth and TastyI have been looking for a really good Expresso coffee and I finally found it. I used this in my regular Mr. Coffee maker and it was very good, I also used it in my travel and my 2 to go maker and still it did not loose it's flavor. Tip, try it with Coffeemate Italian Sweet Cream for a quick latte. Can't wait to use it with an expresso machine.
336680336680B005GX8MMOA196SEEGLL4OGDJ. Singer2421326931200too coarse for espressoThis coffee is ground too coarsely to make decent espresso in either of my two Capresso machines. I filled the portafilter to the top and tamped as hard as I could, but when I brew the water runs through the filter way too fast. I get about 3 oz. of coffee in 10 seconds instead the ideal 1 oz. in 25 seconds. This results in strong coffee instead of actual espresso. I've tried to make this as regular coffee in a french press as well, but the 70% robusto bean in the blend makes for a pretty bland cup of coffee.
336681336681B005GX8MMOA1WG5SD91EWYXZJ. Labore0131347408000Not so GustoI know what other reviewers mean when they say it tasted like Folgers. It was OK but definitely not e Gusto. It was a good deal for the price. I forgot what I paid but I know it was on sale.
336682336682B005GX8MMOA1ZHNT17SEV9QBJONATHAN0111344729600Burnt taste nothing like LavazzaI bought this from Amazon since they don't have this kind of coffee locally. I had purchased the identical brand and boldness about a year ago. Wow, this stuff doesn't even taste like what I had originally! It has an awful burnt taste that lingers as an aftertaste. It really doesn't even compare to what I had before. They must have changed the beans or reduced the quality because it is not smooth at all and has a bitterness and aftertaste that reminds me of the lingering taste after smoking a cigarette. I've decided to switch brands completely. No returns it so I'm stuck with 3 1/2 bricks of sub-par coffee grounds.
336683336683B005GX8MMOA1BKX9MC3YAKF8L. Torres "titililly"0121336953600Not what expected, nothing like IllyGoing by many of the reviews, I decided to give this Lavaza crema coffee a try. People that compare it to Illy are very wrong, this is nothing like Illy, it is bitter and with a strong chocolate flavor, which i don't care for in coffee. the price is not bad if you try it and like it. Not for my taste.
336684336684B005GX8MMOA2UXO0GMT3KKVMP. Chander0131333843200Taste of recycled coffeeAfter reading all the hype I was lured in to buying this so-called coffee. Tastes like coffee grind recycled after first use. The coffee we buy from local super market costs the same but tastes much better.
336685336685B005GX8MMOA2OZBLRSZM0OOLRaymond L Vinson0151328400000Excellent espresso.This espresso makes great crema with it's 70% robusta blend. The aroma and flavor match that of some single origin arabica shots I've had as well.
336686336686B005GX8MMOA2M6NY21DKQOX0D. Thomas "scooter"0151327622400Refreshing coffee, a hit with the officedeployed in the military doesn't always mean you need to miss out on the finer things in life. Another co-worker and myself enjoy our coffee everyday and talking about the brewing smells that come with it. I was able to snag this for 3 bucks a brick. This is some smooth and great tasting coffee. The taste going down your throat is amazing and when we open a new vacuum sealed bag we both take a big whiff of that great ground coffee smell. It makes a pretty strong cup of joe(caffeine too) and not for that bad of a price. Our bags don't expire until the end of 2012 but we don't have to worry about that since we are on our third bag already... this won't replace our regular brands but is a good change. thanks to amazon for shipping this to us.
336687336687B005GX8MMOA1Q15NZ9CIP941sav780151326931200tastes great!!Great tasting coffee. I use this in a plunger and it makes nice strong tasting coffee similar to an espresso machine. I would def purchase this again.
336688336688B005GX8MMOA28M6A30LNX772E. Lalonde "fluxNikko"0141311292800excellent taste, decaf pleaseMy absolute favorite. So smooth and not bitter at all. With cream and sugar it tastes like premium coffee ice cream. I use it in my small drip coffee maker, because I'm usually too busy to make with the espresso maker. It tastes the same either way, just with less water.

My only issue with it is that after drinking it every day for six months I developed heart palpitations. I previously was not a daily coffee drinker, so that probably has something to do with it, but I am only in my early thirties. They don't make a decaf version, and I have yet to find one that tastes as smooth. So now it's only for special occasions, never days in a row.

So if you are sure your heart is VERY healthy (I thought mine was before I had issues), go for it. But tread lightly, and be sure to keep well hydrated.
336689336689B005GX8MMOA2848F375X8BHWT. Hamblin "lite roamin'"3611322524800Bland , wimpy coffeeTried this based on positive reviews. Very disappointed. Just slightly better(and more expensive) than grocery store coffee. Lavazza should be sued for false advertising for putting the word gusto on the package! I will go sprinting back to my BOLD Starbucks and happily pay the modest difference!
336690336690B005GX8MMOA3T1O6VEKRUM0XSteve B. Meinel3641229040000A good coffee, but not perfectThis is one more coffee on my quest for a perfect coffee. It's got the strong, dark flavor I want, but it has a bitter undertone that I do not want. If it had no bitter undertone, it would be the perfect coffee. However, it has to settle for merely being very good coffee.
