Best Selling Italian Coffee Top 10

Here is the May 2012 Italian coffee Top Ten compiled from Amazon.com.

As you will discover, Italian coffee roaster Lavazza is still dominating the Italian coffee top ten.  Indeed Lavazza coffee now occupies nine of the ten spots.  The last time I compiled this list, back in September 2011, Lavazza was in eight of the ten spots.  Illy coffee occupied the other two spots.

Coffee roaster Illy appears to be losing a little ground (no pun intended!) to its Turn based coffee roasting Italian rival, Lavazza.

A New Number One

Lavazza Super Crema Espresso whole bean coffee has snatched the number one spot from Lavazza Crema e Gusto ground coffee.

Lavazza Coffee is popular!

It’s interesting to see that coffee drinkers are still happy to grind their own coffee, or else they have one of those clever coffee makers which does the grinding for them.  Also interesting to see is that Lavazza’s Crema e Aroma coffee beans have made it into the Italian coffee top ten.

Another change is the appearance Lavazza Gran Cream coffee pods which have taken sixth spot away from illy Caffe Scura coffee pods.

Coffee pods are one of the most convenient ways to make a coffee quickly, and mean coffee drinkers can spend more time enjoying their coffee and not cleaning their coffee machines.  This is good, is it not?

OK, on to the Italian coffee Top Ten list, the first of 2012.
