Italian American Coffee - Lavazza Drip Coffee My New Coffee of Choice!

Easter holidays have past and in any Italian household you know coffee is the most important element to any meal or desert after dish.  This month I was lucky enough to get some new Lavazza drip coffee blends from the Lavazza team.    What better time to start sampling than at a holiday time?

This year, as I posted before my mother made her famous Italian biscotti and Easter pie.  I thought I would debut these newer coffee blends to accompany those deserts.
I started out with the Perfetto blend, which is true to its name, there is an incredible aroma, which almost makes you think it's an espresso aroma, but to everyone's surprise it's drip coffee.  I always think it's so funny, every time I tell someone in my family the coffee is Lavazza they immediately think it's espresso, but then I say no, it's a drip coffee and everyone goes, "OH, I didn't know they make that for American coffee? ' (As we call it )

During Easter Italian holidays, there are always family visits and early morning coffee sit downs.  If you ever travel to Italy, they don't have breakfast the way we do with traditional eggs, pancakes, etc, they usually have cookies and their morning espresso.   The picture below is what our breakfast during the holidays consisted of, Lavazza coffee brewed to perfection and a slice of my mother's Easter pie.  There is nothing better.
