I've been enjoying the flavours my my LavAzza coffee packs for about a month now. I use a four-cup Cuisinart drip coffee maker at home - or rather, my husband does...I'm too sleepy in the morning to be much use. Special coffees are love at work in our home.
The aroma on this coffee is amazing. From the first opening of the package - which has a round air seal by the way - its just dreamy! I stood there inhaling the scent of the grounds in my slippers one morning and I could have gone back for more later in the day.
The taste of the Gran Aroma is a standard medium roast - a bit acidic, not very deep - although there is a sense of quality in the liquid - it truly has become coffee, not hot water and coffee. For myself, medium roast is an okay roast - I prefer the dark. The Gran Aroma is a medium roast I would go to for the quality if I couldn't find any dark roast.
Onto the Gran Selezione. THIS is the roast for me. Oh how amazing it tastes in the morning and blends into the foam like its in a lover's arms. Yes, the Gran Selezione is so delicious its making me poetic. It is dark, velvety, smooth, and deep with a hint of quality chocolate. This is the one I will be looking for in stores. I'm so sorry that my package is almost empty! Again, I could inhale the scent of the grounds themselves for hours.
If you are a dark roast lover, I recommend the Gran Selezione. My price-checking has come up with $12.99 a package at London Drugs. I did find Gran Aroma at Superstore, but only that roast. Don't forget to scour the internet for a $2 off coupon, and I also found Sample Source tear-off coupons for $2 off a package at Superstore.
My BzzKit came with a few $4 off coupons, if you know me, you may be one of the select few recipients.
