We tried this version of LavAzza when we were staying in a vacation rental in Venice. We hit the grocery store to stock up on essentials and picked options that we hadn't seen in the U.S., Crema e Gusto being one of them. Of course it was great (how could it not be if you're a LavAzza fan?) so we made sure to add it to our offerings!
Blend of Arabica of Brazilian origin and Robusta coming mainly from East Africa and South-East Asia, for a creamy espresso with an intense taste and a marked timbre, characterized by a delicate scent of fine woods.
