I was curious to see whether the best selling Italian coffee which was at the top of my previous best selling Italian coffee list was still selling well.
The answer is below in the best selling Italian coffee top ten list which has been updated for 2015.
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.
The news for 2015 is that Italian coffee brands, with three exceptions, no longer appear in Amazon.com’s Best Sellers in Coffee Beverages. Why is this? Well, it looks as if US coffee drinkers have taken to K-Cup type coffee pods. Sounds as if Italy’s coffee roasters need to take a look at these too or else they risk dropping out of the Amazon coffee beverage best sellers list completely.
A Best Selling Italian Coffee Number One
Back in April 2011, sitting 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 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.
In July 2015, the top spot goes to Lavazza Super Crema Espresso Whole Bean Coffee. Back in In July 2014, Lavazza’s Crema e Gusto was the number 1 best seller in Amazon.com’s ground coffee category which is now Coffee Beverages.
I particularly like Lavazza’s Crema e Gusto coffee because it tastes like the espresso coffee I drink in Milan coffee bars – 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. Amazon.com sells a single 8.8 ounce brick – so 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 flooding your way! And a shot of espresso is a great way to wake yourself up in the morning.

1. (2. in 2014) (1. in 2011) Lavazza Super Crema Espresso Whole Bean Coffee, 2.2-Pound Bag – a number 1 best seller in mid-2014 in Amazon’s
“Like I was back in Tuscany, but also makes great American coffee“, commented Jack Huesman, an Amazon Top 1000 reviewer.
2. (1. 2014) (2. 2011) Lavazza Crema e Gusto Ground Coffee, Italian Espresso, 8.8-Ounce Bricks (Pack of 4) – has slipped on place in 2015.
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.”
3. New Entry for 2015! – Lavazza Caffe Espresso – Medium Ground Coffee, 8-Ounce Cans (Pack of 4)
