Elusive coffee tracked down via Amazon.
on 8 October 2012
Having tried various coffees in my espresso machine, I eventually settled on Taylor's Hot Lava Java, as although it is not actually marketed as an espresso coffee, I found it worked better than others I had tried in my Francis Francis machine which is actually designed around Illy coffee. Whether it is the high caffeine content or the way it is roasted or ground, it is as close as I have got to the coffee I have enjoyed in cafés or restaurants which has always been my aim but had always eluded me. It produces a rich brown crema and the flavour suits my taste prefectly. The only problem is that the word must have gotten around, as my local supermarket has continuously sold out of it, so it was with great delight that I found I was able to obtain it via Amazon, and furthermore at a lower price. Of course it is necessary to buy a sufficient quantity to benefit from the free p&p but that only means buying 3 packs of 3. Problem solved.
