A Life Saver

One of the most mortifying things about moving back to the US was the inability to buy Segafredo Classico ground espresso. As a substitute, I switched to Lavazza d'Oro, but it's just not quite as good. I was overjoyed when I finally found a Segafredo importer online who carried Segafredo Classico. So far, Espresso Machine Supplies is the only place I've found to buy Segafredo Classico. What's even better is that if you order in a decent quantity, it's less expensive than buying it in Europe! In the Bay Area, a 250g can of Lavazza d'Oro costs about $10. In Bavaria, a 250g can of Segafredo Classico costs about 6 EUR, or roughtly $7.50. I just sent in another order to EMS for a dozen 250g cans of Segafredo Classico for less than $5 each, including shipping!.

Aside form having what I want and having it at a great price, they're also quite friendly. The first time I placed an order, the order tracking system never updated properly. After a few days I contacted them, and they were very helpful. The order arrived on time and in good condition. If you're looking for a reliable and affordable online espresso retailer, definitely give EMS a try.

Comments:

Being an espresso lover, I couldn't resist commenting ;-) Lavazza d'Oro is not my favourite either. If you want to taste something new, I recommend searching for Lavazza "Il Perfetto Espresso", it's a \*lot\* smoother and hasn't got that sour aftertaste. I just don't know why they don't mention it on the website.

I just got an email from EMS. This weekend they're going to raise the prices on their Segafredo and Ghirardelli products due to rising supplier costs. If you were putting off ordering, take this as a sign. You will not find Segafredo Classico less expensive anywhere. (I would hope/assume that the same is true for their other products.)
