Description About Lavazza Gran Espresso - Whole Bean - 2.2 lb
Lavazza Gran Espresso blend is made with Arabica beans from Central and South America, combined with African and Indonesian Robustas. Consistent cup after cup, Lavazza Gran Espresso is strong... but not to be confused with dark and oily, this is light and flavorful.
Many tasters have commented on the lack of bitter aftertaste and the easy crema production. It is perfect for creating milk-based drinks like lattes, cappuccinos, or cafe macchiatos. This is a clear winner from Lavazza for taste, versatility and consistent results even when brewed from different espresso machines.

Recommended Brew Methods
A 2:1 water-to-coffee ratio for your espresso shot is recommended. Using a scale to dial in your shots makes the process faster and more accurate. Your espresso grind should be very fine and powdery. Shots should take 30-40 seconds to brew and be thick and syrupy. Don’t stress, adjustments are always needed to get your shots pulling just right!
Superautos make brewing espresso easy. All you need to do is add beans to the hopper and press a button to pull yourself a shot. If your shot is a bit sour you’ll want to dial the grinder a little bit finer and try again. If it’s bitter, dial it a little coarser. You can find instructions on how to do this for your machine in the manual. Just remember to avoid oily beans that can clog your superauto’s grinder!
