To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we do not use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Received item on 9-Dec-2020. Bought thinking it was going to be good since it was from a reputable brand, was horribly mistaken, totally undrinkable and had to throw it out. Used it for espresso, french press and cold brew, all terrible. Must be same bad batch as from mr malcolm lim below.
Couldn't wait to get shot of these. The flavour was awful. Tasted very cheap and nasty which is not what I'd expected for something marked as top class. It's difficult to review coffee beans because flavour is generally a personal thing. I just don't think they were any near as good quality wise as Lavazza Rossa. They're also more expensive, unjustifiable in my opinion.
These beans have a wonderful aroma of chocolate & brown sugar, but as observed by some reviewers, the flavour is a bit on the thin side. The colour & aroma are good & the coffee produces a nice crema but it fails to provide that essential espresso hit. I suspect that being espresso, Lavazza would say it's intended only to be enjoyed in the usual 60-70mls amount for a double shot. But for those of us who prefer a longer drink, then Lavazza's own Rossa or, dare I say it, even ASDA's own espresso is better, hence 2 stars
I gave this two goes just in case. But no, the second bag was the same. Disappointingly bitter and acidic. No redeeming features to be honest! Other Lavazza has been okay, but this one gets a no from me.
Two stars because one would be insulting as it is coffee and they are beans!
Might be that it was roasted 5-6 months prior to delivery but this review is based on the coffee it produced. Not a robust coffee. Has a reasonable aroma and decent crema but very weak flavour. I get more consistent flavour with illy or better flavour with something freshly/locally roasted. Lots of coffee at a low price but not to my liking.
Flavour is nice but when I opened the bag I can See that coffee beans are not dry, I can See Little bit Oil on the bean. IT should not be like that!!! I never See before in other bag. Is difficult to make coffee becouse grinded coffee powder is sticky and not easy to make coffee. Mess around.. I will not be order anymore from this seller. Maybe it was Just hapend in this one bag but I don't want have wet and oily coffee beans. I'm Little bit unhappy becouse I need buy a other one.
I feel because this coffee is mass produced its easy to have unfresh coffee. I use a bean to cup machine and do love a good crema full espresso.... no need to look here unless you want to be dissatisfied
