acceptable to be called coffee
i bought the beans and use my auto machine, the taste is
moderate light, i usually buy a much darker blend. only bought it at half $30 price well its not as good as the coles branded beans $12 i like(coles was out of stock) let say it's like drinking a watery beer when you like scotch. i need about 5 shots of this oro blend. i will not buy this again, now i have to finish the bag-buggger
Red Lavazza, not worth it!
We have a good coffee machine and always buy Lavazza coffee, and we found that we like all the different blends we usually get from the supermarket. So I was interested in trying what looked like a new blend, in a red packet. It tasted awful! I couldn't believe this was Lavazza coffee. Then I had a closer look at the label, and it wasn't specified if the coffee was actually 100% Arabica (as it is on other Lavazza blends). I think it might actually be made from Robusta which is usually only used for instant coffee. Whatever it is, shame on you Lavazza for selling something so bad under your brand name. Anyway, this terrible coffee now sits at the bottom of the rubbish bin where it belongs!
Purchased in November 2019 at Woolworth Launceston for A$18.00.
This is a perfect blend full of flavour and depth!!
This review is about their new oro mountain grown blend. Amazing coffee taste,rich with flavour and unique notes. I saw it on coles,$10 for 500gr on special, bought a kilo, one of the best desicions I have ever made! Very impressive from lavazza. I am so glad finally i got to try this brand which I always wanted to and never did. Please by all means try it for yourself and you won't be dissapointed.
New Lavazza Qualita Oro not the same coffee
Been drinking the Blue label for years, converted many friends to it, when I heard labeling was changing I stockpiled what I could find of the old blue label here in Perth WA but xmas saw the last of it. NO WAY is this the same. Cannot drink this stuff. Even the strength labeling changed?
Lavazza has put me off coffee
Ok, i worked as a Tech for Lavazza (Valcorp)
There Club product was good, but this level its never been good in my view.
I just bought some from ALDI even though i put it back on the shelf 3 times.
Have brewed 3 different batches and its horrible... fruity, weird, just not pleasant at all.
I think my tastes may have changed, but this product has remained the same
If you like a deep, rich, chocolatey coffee, this is 100% NOT IT!
Lavazza Oro Red Label
We have been drinking Lavazza with the BLUE circle label for 10 years.... just bought a kilo from Coles with a red circle label. Says on the side Fruity & Floral...... it's a very different taste and not enjoyable. What has happened? No longer enjoying our favorite coffee.... so bad..jj
I had only discovered this after a friend gave me a cup... I had tried many different kinds of ground coffee (I don't have a grinder) and I can safely say that this is the best I have found in a supermarket aisle. I suspect those who found it terrible probably had a bad batch and should give it another try. So far, so good, for me, to the point that I have completely given up on instant coffee. I have a preference for a drip filter, I am utterly hopeless at espresso, and this combined with some pure cream is pure joy. Love it.
[Edit 29/1...1/2017] Just over a year down the track, and I must say I am in agreement with those who are commenting that it seems weak now where it did not. Perhaps I have now got a bad batch. I'll persist, but I find I am needing to use more coffee to get that same rich taste.
Used to be good
This used to be my favourite widely available coffee brand. Somethings changed, or maybe I've just got a bad batch. Bought a kilo of the ground blend 3 days ago and was looking forward to the usual fabulousness. However this bag tastes a bit burnt, bitter, not quite right. Nothings changed in my preparation, I hope Lavazza haven't changed their way of roasting and preparing beans. Hate to have to say goodbye to an old friend.
Coffee from a supermarket
Lavazza Qualita Oro has always produced a fine consistent coffee and would rate almost Number 1 in Supermarket Purchased Coffee,it sells quicker than any other brand in my Italian community in Brisbane and I always seem to go back to it after trying many others, everyone I have served it to says "THATS BEAUTIFUL COFFEE".
Always smooth, full bodied flavor, not bitter
