It's great for drip. Espresso roast is simply marketing to the US market. In Italy or France espresso is made from good quality medium roast coffee beans. There is no such thing as an espresso bean.
Don't "Italian" espresso blends, like this one, tend to have a bit more robusta in the mix for the crema?

I think there are smart people selling this stuff that would like us to believe that. Starbucks quite expertly ruined what's perceived as espresso in the US. Their "espresso" is just whatever drip beans were over roasted. If you take a look at Illy beans, considered by many to be a standard or sorts, it's all arabica.

Robusta is generally considered the inferior bean, so that's probably why Lavazza and the "smart people" don't advertise or list the actual robusta percentage on their robusta/arabica blends.

If you're referring to the Starbucks "espresso roast", then they actually use and advertise "100% arabica" beans on the bags, and have instructions on how to brew for drip.
In fact, Lavazza also sells a 100% arabica "espresso" bean that says ideal for drip right on the can/bag.

My point was that if you're going for drip, an Italian-espresso-blend will work, but might not be ideal since they're blended with espresso in mind and will probably have some robusta to produce crema for the fresh "espresso" look.

But if you like the taste, go for it! Robusta itself isn't necessarily bad, just different (more bitterness, but also more caffeine). And 100% arabica, like the stuff Starbucks "over roasted", doesn't guarantee a superior bean.

I buy from vilar imports on eBay. About $5 / lb. tons of options. Roasted fresh every day.

Had Brazilian, Tanzanian pea berry, and Colombia. Trying Costa Rica next.

Was originally skeptical that I'd be able to tell the difference, but it's very obvious. Brazilian is my fav so far.
Thanks for the info. I think ill give them a try. If I order dark roast, would it come out oily?

Amazon lavazza sale seems to be very hit or miss. Sometimes you get completely stale beans

Screw that get off your lazy booty and go to Costa Rica yourself then go climb a mountain and pick them yourself then on your way home kill some natives that try to skin you alive then bring the beans to a bean master that will then roast them fresh. Then and then grind them with 2 stones from Jesus into a thimble in which you will bring to a natural spring for water to then boil when you go to hell with the devil in lava. Then drink out of a dead man's skull used as a cup.
That's my recipe!

This deal is YMMV. If you've already done the S&S thing the coupon is not applicable.

If that doesn't work, try searching for "vilar imports Brazil" 5 lbs for $25.99 shipped priority.

Other origins are more expensive, but I've liked Brazil more than Colombia or Tanzania so far.

I've only ever had medium! And it hasn't been excessively oily, but also not bone dry like some mass produced brands. We buy and drink in bulk, so it's taking a while to try them all out. May just go Brazilian dark roast next time.

Do you use this for espresso or something else?

That's important because this thread is about espresso coffee. That's not to say that people don't use Lavazza for other types of coffee, but it's pitched as espresso so we should compare like with like. I don't see anything on the Vilar sales talking about using their coffee for espresso so as an espresso drinker I would be reluctant to take the risk.

There is zero difference between "espresso" beans and non espresso dark roast beans other than the suggestion of how to use them, and maybe the producers guess at what type of blend might make a good espresso.

My point is simply that you haven't tried using Vilar coffee for espresso. It might make good espresso or it might not, but you don't know. If people are looking for beans to make drip coffee then it sounds like Vilar's Brazilian is worth a try but I wouldn't assume that because it makes good drip coffee that it's going to make good espresso. Sorry to be pedantic but it's an important difference that you didn't make clear. You should also note that the price for Vilar espresso coffee [ebay.com] is good, but not as good as this deal. I'll probably give it a try though, so thanks for the pointer. Smilie They have good feedback and that's a good sign too.
