Best Selling Italian Coffee – The Top Ten List

I was curious to see whether the best selling Italian coffee which was at the top of my previous best selling Italian coffee on Amazon.com post was still a hit.

The answer is below in the best selling Italian coffee top ten list which has been updated for 2014.

Note that to get into to best selling Italian coffee Top Ten, the coffee concerned has to be made by an Italian coffee roaster in Italy.  No non-Italian fakes permitted.  Sorry, Starbucks.

A New Coffee Number One

Back in April 2011, sitting proud at the top of the top ten best selling Italian coffee list was Lavazza’s Super Crema Espresso Whole Bean Coffee, well, it’s been ousted from the top spot by another Lavazza coffee – Lavazza’s Crema e Gusto, which, it just so happens, is a personal favorite of mine!  I recommended Lavazza’s Crema e Gusto blend to someone who got in touch with me via Twitter and he was very happy with it, as I hoped me might be.

In July 2014, Lavazza’s Crema e Gusto was the number 1 best seller in Amazon.com’s ground coffee category.

I particularly like Lavazza’s Crema e Gusto coffee because to me it tastes like the espresso coffee I drink in Milan coffee bars. In other words, it’s got an authentic Italian coffee taste. By the way, I live in Italy and I love Italian coffee too.

If you want to try Lavazza’s Crema e Gusto coffee, you don’t need to buy four packs of it. Now Amazon.com sells a single 8.8 ounce brick – so makes trying this great tasting Italian coffee is even easier than ever.

Just think about it, you can make a cappuccino which tastes like those cappuccinos you had on your summer vacation in Rome, Florence or Venice. Happy memories of Italy will come your way!  And a shot of espresso is a great way to wake yourself up for the day ahead.

Note: Please don’t get beans confused with ground coffee.  To use coffee beans you’ll need a coffee grinding machine or have a espresso machine which can grind them.

1.(2.) Lavazza Crema e Gusto Ground Coffee, Italian Espresso, 8.8-Ounce Bricks (Pack of 4) – still a best seller in mid 2014!

Customer Nicholas Chase commented that Lavazza Crema e Gusto is an “Excellent Blend“, he also added: “Lavazza is a great Italian brand name and the Crema e Gusto blend is a fairly new introduction to the Lavazza catalog. I first tried the Crema e Gusto in Europe and quickly became addicted! I packed my suitcase full when I came home and it was worth the effort. All of the Lavazza blends are excellent, but this blend is particularly special- it is very smooth and rich with virtually no bitterness at all. I brew it in a stove-top espresso maker and it’s absolutely perfect every time.”

    I’m an Illy fan – however, I haven’t tried the Lavazza Creama e Gusto yet! I’ll look for it next time I’m at the store.

    Here in the UK Lavazza and Illy are the only italian coffee brands I can easily find.
    My vote is for Lavazza Crema e Gusto!
    Actually, I miss my Nespresso machine….that coffee is amazing (Roma is my favourite!) even if a little expensive.
    However, a good coffee for me is like home. At the end, like my english collegues say, I’m italian!

      I’d personally say that Segafredo is miles better than Lavazza or Illy. Segafredo would have to be my favourite of the chain coffee brands.

          hi alex again and thanks for your reply. I would like to correct you, no offense, but JACOBS ARABICA EXCLUSIVA and JACOBS ESPRESSO INTENSO are made in Piemonte, Northern Italy, but they don’t say who’s the manufacturer. Nevertheless, JACOBS filter coffee is not made in Italy, whereas, JACOBS espresso is indeed made in Italy.

            Hi again Vasileios – no problem re the correction – thanks. I’ve hunted for Jacobs coffee and but can’t understand German. Have you got a link to where it says JACOBS ARABICA EXCLUSIVA and JACOBS ESPRESSO INTENSO are roasted in Piedmont?

            Thank you,

            Alex

    I would like to start a coffee business here in the U.S. with Italian coffee brands. I have been to Florence and Rome and love every drop of coffee I could get my hands on. I would love to share the experience with my fellow Minnesotan’s that will not have to same opportunities for travels. Any advice will be welcomed.

    Hi, I am from Greece and I am looking for the perfect espresso brand quite a long. I have tried almost all the brands here in Greece and I thing that i have found my favourite brand: JACOBS arabica exclusiva. I brewed this coffe to many machines from krups to wega and the outcome is the same. Strong, tasteful espresso. Recommend to everyone

      Hi Vasileios – good to hear you like Jacobs coffee but its not coffee produced in Italy which is what this post is all about.

      Still, if you like it, go for it! :)

      Cheers,

      Alex
