Gusto Crema Espresso Blend by local Seattle roaster Caffe Umbria re-creates the classic Italian espresso blended for generations by the Bizzarri family. The family's roasting roots go back to the 1940's where the Bizzarri family had their first roastery in Perugia, Italy. The Gusto Crema Blend produces a thick golden crema and a distinctly European flavor profile. It's also excellent as a mild to medium bodied drip coffee.

Not my favorite blendReview by Gedit

I usually stick to my Malabar but every now and then I try different roasts to 'trick' my palates. This roast is a bit darker for a medium roast and has bitter after notes. W/milk it gets blurred and bearable, but as a straight Espresso, it is too bitter and unpleasant.
Also the name suggests plenty of crema, well that is not the case either...

Great whole bean for super automatics!Review by Puyallup Joe Bean

I have a Jura ena 4. Finding the right bean has been an adventure. I've tried various Lavazza, Starbucks, Peets, Safeway. Usually the darker the roast the better the results but... oily beans! There is a way to clean the machine even with use of oily beans but having a medium roast is preferred. I eventually tried the sample of local roasters offered from this webite. The cafe umbria gusto crema blend blew my wife and I away! Minimal oil but amazing taste. Consistent results with our machine. This is the best bean so far and I don't think I'll be going back to the Gold or Grand Lavazza. Definatey worth checking out if you are also looking for that magically non oily espresso bean!
Great Taste, Well bodied, Strong, Balanced, Non-oily
