Default Where to buy Lavazza coffee?

Anyone know where I can buy Lavazza coffee locally? This is for an espresso machine; I'm looking for Super Crema and Pienaroma (whole bean).

I normally buy this online, but my shipment is still a few days out, and we just ran out this morning.

I know that International Marketplace sells Cafe Illy. And I think I've seen Lavazza there as well.

They're a "membership" store. If all you're buying is a tin of coffee, no need to pay the $10. The coffee will cost 10% more. But that's less than a dollar. If while looking around you say to yourself, "Oh, I have found me a new hobby," buy the membership.

I've never spent less than a C-note in that place.

Wallmart carries it, but not in the whole bean, It is ground. At least they do in Florida and I think I saw it in Phoenix as well.

If you don't find it in a local store, there are numerous places online that sell it.

I picked up a bag of Lavazza Super Crema at International Marketplace. I think it was about $31 per kg including tax. That's quite a bit more than the $20.69 it's on sale for at wholelattelove.com right now, with free shipping.

They had a nice selection of canned tomatoes there. I might have to try out the different brands. Also noticed that they were selling some prepared Pomi pasta sauces past their "Best by" dates, and had covered up the dates with a sticker. We picked them up but then put them back on the shelf.

Yeah, they do that sort of thing. They'll also sell freezer-burnt crab and lamb. If you can find my market guide thread, it's mentioned there.

I use my better judgement when I see those orange stickers. I swear by the cans of San Marzano DOP they sell, though. And you can't beat their tins of olive oil. Just have to look for "first cold press."

Can't help - but have you considered roasting your own coffee beans for espresso? I've found I get much better flavors extracted from single origin home-roast than from Lavazza. It is all personal taste, but I prefer micro-lots from Yemen, Ethiopia and Costa Rica, and home roasting is less expensive (all you need is a thrift-store used hot air popcorn popper; unroasted or "green" beans are available from several sources on the internet for about $6 to $8/pound).
