Premium Drip Coffee
|Roaster Location:||New York, New York|
|Review Date:||March 2002|
Blind Assessment: Flat, feeble, tea-like aroma. The cup is sweet but the acidity is weak-kneed and a bit sour. A pleasant hint of fruit, but not enough to save the cup from its general dull listlessness.
Notes: Sold roasted and ground in a 10-ounce can; 63 cents per ounce. Lavazza is one of the world's leading suppliers of espresso coffees. This is a drip blend designed for the American market, but, like all of Lavazza's coffees, it is roasted and packed in Italy.
Who Should Drink It: Those who prefer a weak, tea-like cup. The extremely light roast has not developed the coffee.
