Just wanted to try it and it was ok.

Is this ground for Moka pot? Since the picture on the package seems to show a Moka pot being used, I was wondering if the grind is correct for this. Thanks!
A shopper on Jul 24, 2012
Best Answer: Yes, I think it would be fine in a Moka Pot. In Italy they buy the preground and use it in Moka Pots. I have made it in that a few times. I used it in my Estro Vapore Espresso machine and it worked great ! Had a great crema.

Hi,
Is the grind coarse enough for a french press? I have a bodum brazil press. I am debating between Crema e Gusto or Rossa. Are the grinds on each of these different? If one is coarser, maybe I will choose that one. Thanks!
P H on Aug 3, 2013
Best Answer: Unfortunately none of these Lavazza beans are coarse, as they are each ground fine for espresso. We do not offer any blends ground coarse enough for French Press, and so your best bet is to purchase a grinder and grind beans on your own, unfortunately. I would suggest a burr grinder for best results with more consistently sized particles than a blade grinder. Check out burr grinder options like the Capresso Flat Burr or Capresso Burr Coffee Grinder #559. We also offer a blade grinder, but be aware the beans will be heated and the blade grinders tend to grind inconsistently. I have included a few links below:

Lavazza's crema e gusto is a fine ground. The crema is thick and uniform, there are chocolaty notes, and it's not overy bitter. Subliminal stuff! (Posted on 11/29/2014)

Worth a try if you're just getting into the espresso game - good for the value. Flavor was a little flat for me, I personally prefer the Illy dark roast as far as lower end pre-ground coffees go. It did, however, produce a nice crema consistently and others seem to enjoy it. Next step up would be going for something freshly ground/roasted. (Posted on 3/2/2014)

I am Italian and therefore I know what is a cup of espresso
coffee made with "Lavazza Crema e Gusto" - fantastic!
No bitter flavor in this coffee, only a creamy, rich flavour. I
love it and I am so happy I was able to obtain it thru your
company which I found professional and efficient. Grazie!
I already passed it around to the rest of my family. Ciao! Lia (Posted on 5/13/2013)
Goodish EspressoReview by Robusto Vincenzo

ok, this espresso is a very good price but you do get what you paid for. I'd rather fork over a couple extra dollars for the Lavazza Super Crema 2.2lb bag as it produces a perfect crema and has a beautiful non-bitter chocolaty taste to it. The Crema e Gusto does produce a fine crema but is a little more bitter than I could enjoy. Truly all coffee reviews are simply personal preferences. I would recommend this coffee to one who loves a good crema and doesn't mind bitterness. (Posted on 4/24/2013)
Mucho GustoReview by GChin

Bought this on the recommendation of a SCG customer service rep and was pleasantly surprised that at such a reasonable price how flavorful it is. The crema is rich and thick. You can actually distinguish the 3 different strata if you do the shot in a clear glass.
We have local roasters here in Miami so we have brands such as Pilon and Bustelo that cost as much as the Crema E Gusto, but they are way below its quality. I wish I could buy it locally and have it fresh all the time. (Posted on 12/21/2012)

First coffee I used with our Saeco Via Venezia, and we're happy as two clambs.
I gave one package as a gift, and they are so pleased with the taste, they have ordered more for themselves, now, I must order more for myself!!
I found the first sip to be a little strong, however, I let it sit for a few seconds, and then it was heaven.
I love my coffee and expresso to be very rich with lotta flavor, this coffee has it all! (Posted on 8/4/2012)

Great match for Bialetti BrikkaReview by s9
Quality
Value
Price
After trying various local beans at varying grind levels, I was disappointed w/the crema produced compared w/videos I had seen reviewing the Brikka. I found some of the comments suggested this brew so I purchased here (good price,[...]. I can now say with satisfaction Crema e Gusto is a superb match for the Brikka. Excellent crema, excellent taste, quick to use b/c I don't need to grind. The crema is quite dense as well, you can spoon a hearty amount of sugar on top & watch it slowly sink in once terminal mass is reached.A tip for fellow (2-cup) Brikka users: only fill the grinds funnel 1/2 full. This optimizes the crema production while still producing a full-flavored shot. And be aware, you will have a very small amount of leftover grinds in your demitasse since this is ground more for espresso machines. However, this does not detract from the enjoyment.

Pros:
Great Taste, Easy To Use

Cons:
Some grounds left in cup (Posted on 3/21/2011)
