Now Available in K-Cups: Delicious Lavazza Coffee Blends {Review}

Cross Country Cafe logo
As blogging has shown me the wide variety of products (and product quality) available on the market in nearly every category, it has made me a much more critical consumer. If a company isn't going to put the time and effort into making their items the very best, then I'll go elsewhere for one that is.

At the same time, however, in the past I found myself much more of a find the brand I like and stick to it type of person. But now that I have had so many companies surprise me with products that I enjoy, I'm much more willing to give new options a try. What if the next thing turns out to be amazing?

Proven yet again by Cross Country Cafe and the introduction of Lavazza coffees to their amazing lineup of K-cups.

Lavazza k-cups

Committed to achieving excellence in the production of coffee since the late 1800s, today Lavazza is the symbol of Italian coffee around the world. And, while fans everywhere have been enjoying the way that Lavazza is known for quality, innovation, creation and sharing of authentically Italian espresso and coffee experiences, now those of us who rely on K-cups can join in as well.

Considering that I was unfamiliar with Lavazza but interested in seeing what has made this brand so popular generation after generation, I was ready to put it to the test with Lavazza Gran Aroma and Classico K-cup varieties.

First, a delicious mug of Gran Aroma.

Lavazza Gran Aroma

A medium roast coffee, I found Gran Aroma to have a wonderful aroma and a rich, smooth flavor that was just the right intensity. I had initially worried that this would be too dark or strong for my liking, but I added my usual small amount of creamer and sweetener and was hooked from the first morning!

Then it was time to try Classico.

Lavazza Classico

Also a medium roast, I found that Lavazza Classico had the same rich flavor, full body and amazing aroma as the Gran Aroma, but with a bit more intense coffee taste. As opposed to the "general" coffees that I have enjoyed in the past, I'm blown away by how one of these K-cups can result in such a gourmet-tasting cup of coffee to start my day!

While I'm far from being any sort of professional coffee connoisseur, Lavazza has definitely been added to my favorites list for when I want to indulge in an incredible Italian coffeehouse experience... while at my kitchen table in my pajamas. Perfection!

If you're already a fan of Lavazza, you'll love that their delectable coffee is now available in K-cups for even easier brewing. Or, if you haven't tried these before but are a devoted Keurig user, I recommend picking up a box (head over to the fabulous Cross Country Cafe for a great deal!) to give it a try today!

I love coffee -- Italian coffee is my second favorite. I have never tried Lavazzo, but am very curious about it. Thanks for the great review!
