I was wondering what this term cialde Lavazza meant when I kept seeing it pop up here and there in my searches for coffee stuff. Turns out that cialde is Italian, at least from what I can tell, for pods. So cialde Lavazza is basically about Lavazza coffee pods, so that is what we’ll be discussing today.
I must say though, that the two weeks I spent in Italy were two of the best weeks I’ve had in my life. I love Italy, and not just because they have such great gelato and coffee. The Italian culture and fashion, people, the way of life is just wonderful. Though they drive like they’re all Mario Andretti on all of their freeways.
Anyway, as usual I digress, this post is supposed to be about cialde Lavazza, not about Italian culture and vacations. Though I must add as a final footnote, that I love the Italian language. It is very endearing on the ears.
Back to the cialde Lavazza
But back to Lavazza coffee pods. Lavazza as you may already know or if you have read my other articles, is an Italian coffee producer. They are a large player in the coffee arena with revenues in 2006 of over $1 billion US dollars. They primarily roast and sell coffee beans in all forms. Though they are also offering coffee makers. And in Italy they have a chain of coffee shops similar to Starbucks in North America. Though I’ve gotta say, coffee just tastes way better in Italy. It’s also estimated that over 80% of coffee sold in Italy is produced by Lavazza.
And thankfully, we have access to them now here at home. Cialde Lavazza or Lavazza pods are available in a bunch of different packages. There is Lavazza rossa, Lavazza blu or as we might say Lavazza blue. And of course all of these coffee pods will fit in the Lavazza espresso machine. Though they will fit in many other espresso machines too like the DeLonghi Magnifica because they use the ESE or Easy Serving Espresso pod as their default design. This is handy as you don’t have to worry about proprietary systems like the Senseo coffee pod or Keurig coffee pods.
One of the other great benefits of using a cialde Lavazza or any coffee pod for that matter is the fact that you don’t have to worry about the coffee grind of the beans you’re using. It’s all done for you. Additionally there is not mess and fuss to worry about afterwards too.
Lavazza is continuing to expand on their coffee pod offerings. From decaf cialde to dark roast coffee pods and of course espresso pods, Lavazza should certainly be on your list of coffee brands to try. Whether you have a single serve coffee maker or a regular red coffee maker or other color, or even an espresso machine, Lavazza is worth a try and they’ll have a product for each of those needs.
Final thoughts on cialde Lavazza
Lavazza products are also quite reasonably priced for a very nice flavor profile in all of their products that I have tried so far. Depending on where you buy them and how many you buy at a time, cialde Lavazza can be had for less than thirty cents each. That’s almost as cheap as borscht, but it’s coffee, it’s cialde Lavazza!
