Note that the "2" means double shot.
Cheapest I've gotten these before is ≈$60.
Few other flavors looked marked down too.

I think the Intenso is a little smoother, but just as bold. Intense is right in terms of aroma, it is amazing. I'm not good at describing the tasting notes. I would say Intenso has a traditional espresso taste with a medium roast. The Rotunda tastes more dark roasted is a blend of 100% Arabica, but the Intenso has the slightly higher intensity rating (9). I lean towards the Intenso myself, but I like both and just bought a box of each. Here's a list I put together of the different Lavazza capsules and varieties (and a couple Kimbo). The descriptions are from the manufacturer:

Name / Intensity / Description
Espresso Vigoroso 10 The intensity of tradition. A very strong, full-bodied, dark-roasted blend, typical of Southern Italy. The intensity of tradition.
Kimbo Napoli 10 Clean and bright with flavor notes reminiscent of fresh flowers and baked confections, the Napoli Espresso has been crafted with care to paint the lush semblance of Naples into your morning cup.
Espresso Intenso 9 A particularly intense, creamy espresso with a persistent, balanced atertaste.
Espresso Ricco 9 Strong and mellow. A dense, rich espresso with a chocolatey flavour, excellent body and lingering aftertaste.
Kimbo Gold 100% Arabica 9 Delicately imbued with notes of fresh flowers and clove, Kimbo's high quality 100% Arabica espresso will submerge your senses in cultivated decadence. Medium roast.
Caffe Crema & Aroma 8 Strong and persistent. Strong, lingering taste.
Rotondo 8 A 100% Arabica blend with a sweet, fragrant aroma, Rotondo is produced using top-quality Brazilian and Indian coffee beans. Sweet, full-bodied and creamy, this coffee requires little sugar, so that you can appreciate its flavors in all their fullness.
Tierra 8 100% Arabica. Refinement and sustainability
Espresso Amabile 8 Lungo - A blend with a creamy taste and smooth, full aftertaste.
Espresso Dolce 7 100% Arabica. Sweetness and character. A sweet, full-bodied, creamy blend with a dense, lingering cream.
Caffe Crema Dolce 7 100% Arabica. Lungo intensity 7 A 100% Arabica blend with a sweet, fragrant aroma, made of top-quality Brazilian and Indian coffee.
Espresso Decaffeinato 6 Decaffeinated, 100% Arabica with a full, sweet aroma and a slightly chocolatey aftertaste. Flavor and lightness
Espresso Delicato 6 Lungo - Velvety and delicate. A sweet, delicate, creamy blend.
Espresso Decaffeinato Soave 5 Lungo - Sweet and smooth. A mellow blend with a velvety cream.
Gold Selection ? Lungo. Hints of honey and almond
Gran Espresso Dark Roast ? Rich cream and a intense aromatic profile, intense, full bodied experience, with hints of smoky and barrique, and all the harmony of Italian espresso.
Top Class ? Cinnamon and dark chocolate notes
Dek ? Decaffeinated. Roasted cereals and barrique

Sold by Italy Best Coffee. I just hope these are not quickly expiring.

I'm definitely a fan of the double shots. Thanks OP. Excellent price.

Definitely my favorite "pod coffee". Great flavor and certainly enough caffeine to get your day started.

I order the 100 packs from Italy Best Coffee via amazon every few months. They've all had around a year expiration.

I received my Rotondo 2 from this deal yesterday, best by date 2/28/2021. That's pretty darn good. Don't wait because it's probably not going to last long, and for current (not out of date) capsules I doubt we'll see this price again on the double shot caps.

Not sure if many are aware, but Italy Best Coffee is actually run by Lavazza. I learned this after speaking with Lavazza customer support.

Although, this doesn't change whether this is an older batch or not. I'm assuming the age makes them more likely to go on sale.

I just got my $40 "test box" of ItalyBestCoffee Intenso 2's yesterday and they have an expiration of 4/30/2021. Nice! I have 3 Blue machines that my wife and I use multiple times daily, so I just placed another order for five more boxes of Intenso 2 and three of Rotondo 2. In my experience, capsules are definitely usable up to and beyond the expiration date.

I just wish Supermarket Italy would get a restock on Kimbo Napoli, but I think Kimbo stopped producing the Blue-compatible capsules.

I agree, the shelf life is really great. I just keep my extra boxes in the basement and they're fine. You know, the more I think about it I may buy one more box, it's too good to pass up. I also wondered about the Kimbo being out of stock for so long at Supermarket Italy. Either Kimbo stopped producing or SI discontinued and didn't get rid of the link. Either way, with this Lavazza special I'll be set for some time. "I'll have one more Intenso please".
