Product Description

Lavazza Qualita Rossa Espresso is a full bodied espresso. The African Robusta coffee beans give it body and a chocolate aroma, while the natural Arabica from the Brazilian highlands contribute body and a mild aroma. Lavazza roasting brings it all together to create a velvety sensation for your palette. It is the perfect blend for breakfast because it goes well with milk-based drinks and is excellent with biscotti or other bakery goodies.

  • 2.2 pounds Premium Whole Bean Espresso
  • Roasted and Imported from Italy
How Does it Compare?

Lavazza Qualita Rossa has a subtle chocolate crema and a full bodied taste. This coffee has gotten mixed reviews and tasters seem to love it or hate it. If you are transitioning from another Lavazza espresso like Super Crema or Starbucks coffee you will find it weak. If you love tenderly roasted Italian blends this is your bag o' beans.

How does this one compare to Lavazza Gold Or Rossa ? I found the gold to be a little bitter and have some acidic after taste where the Rossa is completely non acidic. As one who cant tolerate acidic coffee how would you rate this one ?

Also how come this bag looks different then amazon super crema ? i am used to different look of the bags.

Best Answer: Super Crema is probably our most popular blend from Lavazza. It has a great flavor while still providing some bold notes. It does not impart as much sour notes as the Gold does (likely where you're finding the acidity), but does have some, more than the Qualita Rossa does. Qualita Rossa is their most mild, well rounded blend, and is very popular in Canada and Europe.

While not all of Lavazza's blue bags have been converted to the darker, matte finish blue color that the Super Crema has, I anticipate that over time they will all change. This is merely updating to their bag, and has absolutely no relation on the flavor or blend inside.

Delicious dripReview by Joe

Big fan of this for drip coffee (using a Breville YouBrew). Great aroma and full flavored cup with or without cream and sugar. The only beans that come close that I've tried are the darker, oilier Kicking Horse blends. The only reason I'm not giving three sets of 5 starts is that I don't like having to buy 4.4 pounds of coffee in order cut the shipping cost. (Posted on 9/20/2013)

Love this coffee, and I will be enjoying it for a long time. I've also ordered another in the Lavazza line. I'm recommending Seattle Coffee Gear to all of my coffee-loving friends. I'm enjoying all of their products. The Airscape Coffee Bean Canisters are the perfect storage containers for the coffee beans. I wish I had discovered SCG sooner! (Posted on 8/19/2013)

The taste is okay, but a bit boring when compared to the super crema. I don't care for it. (Posted on 4/11/2013)
Great EspressoReview by Pat

I am rather new to making espresso at home and have wasted, thrown away, or drank way too much bad espresso. I even considered giving up making it at home until I experienced Lavazza Rossa. I can't believe the difference the right coffee can make. Now I am a happy espresso lover! (Posted on 3/13/2013)
Great Coffee from LavazzaReview by AttitudeXX

By Lavazza standards for sure, this coffee provides a great espresso! 9.25/10 for me, it is full-bodied without being too acidic, a nice medium roast that won't clog up the grinder, and great crema that lends a distinctly chocolatey flavor when paired with low fat milk. (Posted on 3/6/2013)
Not what I had hoped for.Review by Ken

While I am sure it is good bean, and the taste is acceptable, it is not nearly as strong on my SAECO as a good espresso in any of the coffee shops. I have had it for a month but I have yet to be happy with my cup of coffee. (Posted on 2/28/2013)
