Now Brewing: LavAzza

Ah, a subtle return to Italy in a cup of coffee. While in Italy Kris and I often stopped mid-morning and mid-afternoon for a cup of coffee, usually a latte. As often as not we were served one of Italy’s best: LavAzza. So, we bought a big bag of what makes LavAzza’s family proud. I recently made an espresso shot for Luke and he liked it very much, and I’m lapping it up. Funny how a taste triggers memories of place, not the least of which was one of our fine cups on the shore at Positano.

I do not remember having LavAzza distinctly, however my current espresso choice is the Illy brand.

That’s what I buy here in Montreal all the time. It’s a great espresso!! With a nice cream on the top.
I have to admit, when I was in Italy, I had espresso 3-4 times a day, after 3 weeks, I had to take a 6 month sabbatical from it – it felt like it burned my stomach. That was 10 years ago, and after the sabbatical, I resumed to about 1 a day.

The Lavazza Espresso Point machine looks like a great way to make single shots of espresso…I wish I had one!

Nice choice!
A little piece of trivia. it’s also the official coffee of the Swiss Railway (SBB – Schweizerische Bundesbahn). Stewards (like me for the last few months..) wheel their trolleys up and down the train with snacks and an Espresso Point machine attached to a huge battery and supply the needs of espresso-thirsty business travellers all throughout the country!
