Best Selling Italian Coffee – The Top Ten List

Best selling Lavazza Crema Gusto Coffee

I was curious to see whether the best selling Italian coffee at the top of my previous best selling Italian coffee list was still selling well.

You can find answer below in the best selling Italian coffee top ten list which has been updated for 2017. As from 2017, there are now two lists: one for ground Italian coffee and the other for Italian coffee beans.

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.

Added 2016 – Caffe Borbone

An up and coming coffee brand in Italy – Caffe Borbone- Espresso Pods – Miscela Blu – lots of positive reviews on Amazon too. If you’ve got a Nespresso machine, you can also try Borbone coffee: Caffe Borbone Espresso – Respresso – Superior Quality – 100% Italian Roasted – Miscela Blu are excellent. I recommend these and drink them myself – they make a great tasting shot of espresso. I got to know about them thanks to an Italian friend. Thanks, Roberto!

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.

The previous list, which contained both ground and coffee beans, is here:

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.”
