As most people who know me in ‘real life’ know, I have a serious addiction to coffee. If I had the choice between a glass of wine or a decent cup of coffee, I would go for the coffee pretty much every time.
I love the taste of ‘real’ coffee but as I am the only coffee drinker in the house, it isn’t always worth me putting on a pot just for myself, so I tend to stick to instant coffee. I’ve yet to find an instant coffee that tastes quite as good as the proper stuff – until now!
I’ve always considered Lavazza a luxurious and premium brand, so was excited to hear that they had a range of instant coffee to enjoy at home. I was sent two tins – the Medio and the Intenso. I enjoyed both, but the Intenso was probably my favourite out of the two. As the name suggests, it’s got a slightly more intense flavour, but with hints of sweetness and caramel.
The coffee tasted as good as, if not better than a lot of the real coffees I have had. It also had that smooth texture and taste that instant coffee always seems to lack.
Overall, both of these coffees looked good, smelled good and most importantly, tasted great. They are definitely going to be a regular item on the shopping list from now on!
