These beans are really good quality and the resulting cup is flavourful
12 January 2016
I like Lavazza coffee very much. My preference is for a strong and bold cup of joe, medium roasted. I purchased a 250g bag of ground coffee to try before I committed to a larger bag. I was keen to freshly grind coffee in the morning - so decided to go for a 1KG bag of beans which should last a month as I only drink one strong cup a day.
Opening coffee bags is always difficult because it is sealed very tight - this is no exception That's a good thing in my opinion because it means it is well sealed. Once opened the aroma hits you; fresh, clean and strong. I decanted the bag into an airtight container and put it in the fridge as instructed.
I just hand ground some beans and put it through my Aeropress coffee maker. First impressions, the cup of coffee is great and very close to the pre ground bag I purchased first - I didn't grind the coffee as fine as that bag though. I will go finer and report back - I expect it will be a stronger hit!
These beans are really good quality and the resulting cup is flavourful and I look forward to experimenting more to get that perfect cup.
*UPDATE* I finely ground the beans just now - not as fine as espresso but closer to french press - and put it through my Aeropress - these beans are really good - producing a smooth and rich cup of coffee. For the price, these are really worth it.
