I have a la Pavoni espresso machine and I grind my coffee beans, so I care about good coffee. I drink my espresso with microwaved milk. I've tried medium roast Illi, which I prefer, but can't afford, and Kirkland House Blend Medium Roast which isn't good enough for me (it's kind of harsh), and Lavazza Qualita Oro which is very smooth but doesn't have much character, and Lavazza Gold which is almost as smooth and has more character, and this new coffee, which is now my favorite (among those I can afford). It's about as smooth as Qualita Oro, but has just enough character to make it my favorite.
