Great flavor - regardless of how you like to brew your coffee drinks. Everyone here at the office loves this coffee.

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.

I'm noticing that Gold Selection is becoming difficult to find. Is this product being discontinued, or produced in lower quantities?
curmudgeon on Dec 13, 2014
Best Answer: Unfortunately, we will not be getting the Gold blend back in stock. Comparable, I might suggest the Lavazza Gran Crema, or the Qualita Oro, both of which are nice and strong without being overpowering. Hope this helps in your quest!

Not impressedReview by Lyw

I bought this due to the good reviews. I bought a new automatic espresso machine and was shopping for good beans to use with it. I have tried Starbucks from Costco and this gold selection that I just bought from SCG. I think this bean is totally lake of the coffee aroma.. When I brew my Starbucks, the whole house smells coffee, but this one is not. I am not sure it's because of the freshness of the coffee or not. My bag says expires Aug, 2013.. But I am very disappointed. I still have other two bags of different coffee that I purchased together, hope I can find a good one to stick with. Otherwise I might just go back to Costco.

My #1 favorite bean for my Capuccinos!Review by Brit

I prefer a dark roast when it comes to my espressos. I spent a few years as a barista so I have savored a number of coffee beans. Although Illy Dark Roast Espresso is acceptable I find the Lavazza Gold Selection has a nice chocolate note that and a richness to it.
This is the second time I have had the Gold Selection, using the Illy in between because it is locally accessible.
This time, I could definitely taste the difference between the two coffee beans and in my mind, the Lavazza Gold Selection is the most enjoyable espresso from my Rancilio Silvia V.3 with PID and Rancilio Rocky grinder. (Posted on 9/19/2012)

I echo the sentiments of the other reveiwers. Started out with Starbucks and Illy with my Incanto fully automatic, but, wasn't enamored. My husband was ready to go back to our drip coffeemaker until we discovered Lavazza. After experimenting with several varieties, settled on the Gold. We stray once in a while and always come back to the Gold. It's smooth, somewhat chocolaty which makes a great drink plain or with milk. We truly enjoy!

Pros:
Smooth

Cons:

I find that Lavzza Gold is consistently the same. It has a gentle but robust flavor that is easy on the tongue. It is smooth and never acrid as some blends can be. It is thanks to Seattle Gear an affordable bit of luxury that reminds me of my many trips to Italy.

Pros:
Great Taste

Cons:

The Espresso of Italy at homeReview by Redzin

It wasn't until I started traveling to Italy that I learned what a good cup of coffee was. Reproducing that at home wasn't easy. It took good coffee, like Lavazza Gold Selection, a good machine (I use a Seaco Incanto Deluxe), and the correct coffee:water ratio. For me is 9-10gms coffee to 1 oz water. A dopio in a Bodum 3oz glass makes my day. Also great 50:50 Gold Selection with DEK to reduce caffeine (my daytime blend). Life is good with Lavazza, at home or in Italy. IMHO Lavazza rules!

Pros:
Great Taste

Cons:
None (Posted on 3/23/2010)
